Birth & Postpartum Doula, Belly Binding
Meg, a birth and postpartum doula, strives to guide families through the vulnerability that takes place from pregnancy to postpartum. Meg is a mother and partner to my sweet little family in Harford County, MD. She is passionate about nature, and loves all things that help her show empathy. Meg loves to connect with families in ways that promote trust and comfort when they are together. Building the relationship by using active listening, validating feelings, evidence-based support, and helping the families build their community are so important to her, as a doula. Using mindful techniques to promote relaxation, and an open mind can be so huge when in labor. The stillness of the mind and what it can do for the body are so important when it comes to laboring and birthing your baby. Connection is a huge part of all of these phases and the more that you can connect with yourself, your partner, your doula, your care provider, your BIRTH TEAM; the more stress free and flexible you will be.
Postpartum is a time to be so gentle with yourself--mentally and physically. Meg loves to nurture her postpartum clients by bringing them flowers, listening to their birth story, setting up a snack box right next to their resting area so they do not have to get up much. It really is the little things. You just gave birth to a beautiful gift and now is the time to rest and hydrate; to eat warming foods and worry not about the house or the world. Meg loves to be there with clients, supporting them with newborn care, offering assurance, and information. It's an abundant thing when your needs are met and you feel great, too.
