Summer isn’t over yet here in Arizona. Your doula knows the impact summer heat has on birthing and postpartum bodies. When ignored, complications can arise! We see it every single year. A steady influx of clients who are contracting early. Breastfeeding and chest feeding mothers and parents who suddenly have a lower milk supply. Whether you are pregnant or postpartum right now, the heat can get to you when you live in the desert – or any place that gets especially hot. Fortunately, we’ve put together some tips for you to thrive! (Yes, even on day 9,567 of pregnancy.)
Have you ever thought about recovery as a sacred space? Ancient wisdom teachings have honored generations of women and birthing folks through simple (and sometimes quite luxurious) care practices for the postpartum space. We believe it’s time to embody that wisdom again now.
For every birth, there is a postpartum season. A period in time so sacred that we either embody best practices and thrive, or we don’t. There is rarely middle ground here. This is why we entered into a new space with Cherry Blossom Doula Services, creating a team of postpartum doulas back in 2019.
