Postpartum Doula & Infant Care
Congratulations, you are back at home with your new baby...now what?
As the excitement of having your baby and the first few days begin to settle in, many Houston families realize how overwhelming this amazing experience soon becomes. After the loved ones leave and friends go back to their normal lives, you are still left with a new baby, a million questions and very little time. From sleep deprivation, mood swings, breastfeeding concerns, and let's not forget the craziness of managing a house; mothers and father's soon realize that an additional set of hands and expertise is a must have with a new baby.
Breathe easy, because your feelings of anxiousness are not uncommon and you have someone by your side to guide you every step of the way. Babies don't come with a direction manual but lucky for you, you have Marley & Moo™.
