Today’s episode is all about how you can help new moms during postpartum. But when you’re the mom and expecting a baby, there is so much to think about and plan for before the baby’s arrival.
- Is my baby healthy?
- Will I be a good mom?
- Am I even ready to be a mom?
One thing I am so glad that I knew about was ViaCord Cord Blood Banking.
Cord blood banking is a simple and smart way to help plan for your family’s future health. But the only way you can do it is right when your baby is born. You can save your child’s cord blood even if you’re doing delayed cord clamping. Cord blood can be used for a range of conditions. And if you need it for a condition that can use cord blood, a doctor will help you decide if it’s the right medical option. Hundreds of ViaCord families have used their baby’s cord blood to help with various conditions and it has made a world of difference in their lives.
It’s important to think about those things like ViaCord during pregnancy, and it’s also important to start thinking about your postpartum time. Mary Alice and I have both had our babies and are in the postpartum period. As postpartum doulas and mothers, we know what is helpful and what isn’t when it comes to helping new moms during postpartum.
