why do women choose a doula?
- husband feels lost or wants extra hands
- 1st birth wasn’t what they expected
- induction/cesarean/unmedicated birth knowledge- doulas are experts in options
- help finding the correct provider for them- not all doctors and hospitals are equal
- The process of Belly Binding is completed by wrapping a long piece of cotton Muslin fabric, either under or over clothing, in a pattern leaving a supportive woven look. Rather than using an elastic one-piece and size specific binder that may pinch or ride up, the woven fabric contours to the body and fits to all body sizes and shapes.
- There are many potential benefits to Belly Binding, which may include:
- – Posture correction
- – Abdomen and lower back support
- – Aid in Diastasis Recti healing
- – Avoid slouching during feeding sessions
- The ideal time to begin binding is one week after birth. For caesarean birth, 4-6 weeks following is recommended to allow for incision healing. Our service includes the initial binding session with 2 wraps, and a trained Doula will instruct a significant other or friend on how to re-bind as needed.
