Meet Teresa Gossard

I love talking long walks through Eden Park, spending time with any or all of my five adorable grandchildren and three children. Cincinnati is wonderful - Great parks and outdoor activities, college and professional sports, lovely museums and galleries, the symphony and many concert venues, so many theaters and countless fabulous restaurants.

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,

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

42 Weeks: A Birth Story

Today, in honor of my birthday, we're excited to share the first of many birth stories that tell us the history of childbirth. Like many first-time mothers, I suspect, I felt as if had been waiting my whole life to have that baby. I was ecstatic. The entire extended family was, really...Nothing seemed to be "wrong" mind you, just that, well, it would be 42 weeks...

Kale Salad: 5 Ways

It’s no secret that I love Kale Salad. If you’re a DOC client, and I’ve been your doula - especially for Postpartum and Infant Care - then you’ve probably seen me throw down a medium sized mixing bowl of this yummy goodness at lunch. It’s a favorite when I meal prep for clients and the possibilities are endless.

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)
