Loneke and Darien are excited to welcome Baby Wavvy (so named because of very excited hand motions during ultrasounds) and become parents! This baby has been really active even responding to soon-to-be Dad's voice with big kicks or punches. Let's be honest, we don't know if that's an arm or a leg kicking around at this point. Any support to make welcoming Baby Wavvy into the world and settling into our home as a family of 3.5 (can't forget Greyson the cat) just a little smoother is welcome.
In lieu of a physical gift for the baby shower Loneke and Darien ask that you consider purchasing a gift certificate for doula services. Your gift for doula services will provide them with invaluable support and make you apart of this joyous occasion.
In addition to birth doula services, Loneke and Darien have also registered for postpartum doula services for a bit of help with the newborn transition and tending to the family postpartum.
Haven't heard of a doula before? Here's some stats about when a doula is present during labor and birth to help reassure you!
25% Reduction in the length of labor
60% Reduction in epidural use
50% Reduction in cesarean rate
40% Reduction in pitocin use
40% Reduction in forcep delivery
50% Reduction in narcotic use
Postpartum Doulas decrease rates of postpartum depressions, increase successful breastfeeding rates, and leave families feeling ready for this part of their journey.
They appreciate this gift, more than you know. Gift Certificates can be purchased in $25 increments and will be sent to your home prior to the shower date, or to the pregnant couple if you choose to do so. Please note selected option in the additional text field.
