The initial postpartum period is a very vulnerable and needy time for me. Hannah was just the caring prescence that I needed! She was so great about making me food when I was hungry and bringing me water to keep hydrated. Having a postpartum doula is different than just having a friend help out. Hannah's specialized knowledge meant that she knew what I needed without me having to explain or even ask sometimes. She is so experienced with newborn babies that I always felt completely comfortable handing off my son to her so that I could rest or take care of my own needs. She even understood that I just needed someone to listen sometimes and she was great about checking in with my emotional state. It was a blessing to have such holistic care during that time. I would absolutely recommend her!
