UPDATE: Mommies First is no longer in operation. Instead, I recommend Mothers Helping Hands Atlanta. One of my regrets about my delivery is not getting more support from birthing, postpartum and baby experts. All the books in the world can’t prepare you for the real-life experience of bringing a newborn home and trying to figure out your life – post-baby.
Did you have any postpartum support from an expert after your delivery?
Do you know what a postpartum doula does for families?
Mommies First, LLC is an Atlanta-based company created by Jessica Course who is a received training from the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association (CAPPA). She’s an experienced nanny who offers postpartum wellness, baby nurse, child care and home management support. For moms who are expecting around the hectic holiday season and New Years, she’s offering a special opportunity to work with you in-person at your home or a mutually agreed upon location, over the phone or via Skype.
Mommies First offers postpartum wellness sessions for new moms during the first 12 weeks of their postpartum recovery. These sessions are designed to simply allow new moms to talk openly and freely without judgment about their birth experience or any concerns, issues, or experiences related to their postpartum recovery and wellness. We offer non-medical support in areas such as breastfeeding, c-section recovery, baby blues, and much more. There is no agenda. The sessions are completely client directed. Moms talk about whatever they need to talk about.
