This class is a spin on your basic baby care class, we will spend the first few hours explaining how to care for your newborns belly button, sleep cycles, newborn safety, and all of the normal expectations for a baby care class. Then we will bring in our doula spin. The next two hours will be spent discussing how to help heal from your birth, how your partner can help in the early stages of recovery, breast care, the changes with your body, expectation setting for visiting family members, and much more. The last hour we will divide into two groups, separating the birthing person from their partner, for in depth conversations surrounding postpartum sex, how to help the partner spot the signs of postpartum depression and anxiety, the emotional needs and changes of your relationships, and some practical personal conversations. This hour for the partners, will be hosted by an experienced father and spouse of a Birth Tribe doula, who can bring a unique perspective as well as evidence based information to the conversation.
