Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
After a woman gives birth she has even more needs than during the prenatal period: her own physical and mental well being, breastfeeding management, infant nutrition and general support by family, friends or doulas. A doula is a woman who is trained to provide support to women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period following the birth.
The Gentle Art of Newborn Family Care: A Guide for Doulas and Caregivers by Salle Webber addresses the importance of the postpartum period, and provides practical techniques for family members on: postpartum care, mother’s emotional needs, infant nutrition, care and breastfeeding, father/partner and family support, siblings, the art and business of being a doula, and so much more.
About the Author: Salle Webber has been serving families as a professional postpartum doula in Santa Cruz, California since 1988, and has been a teacher of the gentle art of caring for families with newborns. She is known for her wisdom, humor, and tender touch with babies and mothers.
