“Our culture doesn’t have a good way to measure what you are accomplishing. Your baby will grow and meet milestones: check. But to the untrained eye most of this work, at the end of the day, will look like nothing.”

It really does. This is in part, why I got into postpartum doula work.  At the end of the day raising tiny humans is hard. So hard. Sometimes we need help accomplishing those tasks like dishwashing, and when we don’t have a family support network, or close friends to step in…. I wish I had known when my second was a newborn. A postpartum doula could have made all the difference in my postpartum experience. ~Brook
