You probably don’t even think about the fact that women in America work right up until their baby comes. Take a moment to think about it though. How healthy is that for you and for your baby?
Look, once that baby arrives, as a new mom, you will have zero time to yourself. So, it’s best to get in all the self-care early– I’d say moms-to-be need to be loving on themselves for the whole last month of the pregnancy.
That’s why I’m all about pampering my doula clients as the big day approaches. Listen, I’ve got THREE babies due this month and I’ve been busy making pampering packages, gift baskets and herbal teas for all of them. Plus — big announcement– I even created a homemade, organic stretch mark reduction cream from scratch! And, yep, it’s only available for my doula moms.
I call this special time “ In house baby moon ” — the month before the baby comes– and I show up at the homes of my doula moms with bags of goodies to give them a full spa experience inside their own home. I even give them massages and present them with trays of food to help provide the extra vitamins and minerals they’ll need for breastfeeding.
Ready for YOUR at home Babymoon? Me too. Book me as your doula and I’ll take good care of you.
