We tried very hard to make the arrival of the second as peaceful as possible, and we were so very lucky to have met Megan. Overnight dula care with Meg was very much like welcoming a calm and knowledgeable friend into our home and entrusting those first nights to her care. She is the best of all worlds; young and energetic, as well as wise and thoughtful in the ways of womens health. We slept, Meg brought the baby to me when he needed to eat and then cared for the rest of his needs through the night. In this way, I was able to; rest and heal from my second c section in a healthful way, successfully breastfeed, and have enough energy to care for my toddler through the days. Thanks to Meg, our home transitioned from one child to two with a well rested dad and a happy mom. We could not have done it without her.
