Pick a provider who will absolutely care for you like the queen you are. As a whole, we adore the midwifery model of care. There are amazing OB/GYN’s too! When choosing your maternity provider, will you do yourself the biggest favor and ask how they will support you in the postpartum space? Your provider can often pick up complications and issues with lactation, incontinence, and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders. For in-home guidance on this and so much more, a postpartum doula is an excellent resource. You will bond better with babe when you are tended to well, dear one.
