Jenny Corbett, CD(DONA), APPA Certified Placenta Arts Specialist
After your baby is born, you will enter an amazing time of love, bonding, and discovery. It is also a time of intense healing and emotions. Being prepared for your postpartum experience is just as important as being prepared for your baby’s Birth Day.
We live in a society that says a new mom should be back on her feet an a few days.
Don’t fall for it!
It is so important to take the time to REST, RECOVER, and BOND with your baby.
