Dear Doula: I'm Hungry All The Time!

Dear Doula: I'm Hungry All The Time!

Everything is really going so well. Except, at night, as soon as I sit down to nurse, I am STARVING! I was really careful during my pregnancy to eat well and gained just 21 lbs. I’ve been trying to continue with my healthy eating now that I’m breastfeeding, but I’m really struggling during nursing sessions. I just want to eat everything in sight, especially at night! I have never felt so hungry. Is this normal?

Dear Doula: Do you have any Mocktails for Mom?

Dear Doula,

All of my friends and family are having get togethers and heading out to our favorite breweries, restaurants and bars. I want to do the best for my baby and myself…but I’m feeling super left out - do you have any suggestions? 

Thanks,

Feeling festive in Ft. Mitchell

Dear Doula: How Do I Write A Birth Plan?

I just got back from my prenatal appointment with my doctor, and it sounds like I should have my birth plan already written…and I haven’t even taken my classes yet.  I’ll be honest, I'm totally overwhelmed every time someone talks about birth plans...

Dear Doula: My GBS Test is Positive, Now What?

Remind me again why none of my friends told me I was going to get my vagina and rectum swabbed at my 36 week appointment?!  You’d think they would have remembered to mention that one!...Let’s start by going over the basics of GBS (Group B Streptococci)
