Isolation, Anxiety, Recovering from Traumatic Births – and that’s Postpartum Without Covid!

Being a new mom is far from easy. Postpartum comes with so many challenges including:

Add in the limitations of Covid, and there’s the added challenge of not being able to have help come over, whether that’s Lactation consults, postpartum doulas, or family. We know it takes a village – how can we get the support we need?

Dr. Jeon, a Pediatrician at UCLA, led us through a great discussion, with topics like:

  • What are the best kinds of thermometers?
  • When is a temperature a fever?
  • What are remedies for colic or gas, and what’s the difference?
  • What are some was to stay positive?
  • When are video visits useful, and when is it time to come in?
  • How can a postpartum doula be safe right now, and what do they do to help?

Enjoy this presentation about postpartum and the Q&A after!

If you’re a mom or pregnant, please don’t accept loneliness, isolation, or giving up nurturing your body. Enjoy a class with us!

Thank you for spreading the Ma love!
