Year in Review:
Since last spring, a new normal has begun to settle in, which has included being back in families' homes! It has been wonderful to see families in person and to be able to support more than one family at a time! The best part has been to be free from the anxiety and fear of newborns and their parents becoming sick.
I have been fortunate to be with some amazing families this year! In person, as a postpartum doula and also virtually, in the teaching of the Bringing Baby Home Workshop. Additionally, I have been lucky to teach Infant Massage privately to a couple of families.
Remarkable!! All of the families I have supported this year, have been remarkable! The intention, resiliency, energy, care, love, partner support, willingness to learn, adapt, grow, and change has been so beautiful to experience first hand. To be a part of these families' evolution, in some small way, has been pure joy!
This has been a year of regrouping...
finding balance and creating joy. In the face of much loss, change, and unpredictability. Settling in, getting my feet back underneath me, and leaning into what is, right now, right here in this moment has given me much strength and hope.

TO SWADDLE OR NOT TO SWADDLE that is the question? Yes! Newborns prefer to be swaddled. As they settle in, some newborns prefer arms out, and may prefer arms out of their swaddle. So arms free in a swaddle or a sleep bag.
