When I talk about my profession, I hear this question asked a lot. There are two very different schools of thought when people talk about cost of your doula.
It's a "normal" practice in the placenta encapsulation world for your doula (who may or may not be trained and certified in placenta encapsulation) to support you through birth, pack up your placenta and take it home with them. This blog is going to talk about why I in no way and in no circumstance will take your organ home with me.
I was recently a part of a quick survey, put together by Haakaa (my favorite silicone breastmilk catcher brand!) where they specifically asked us, what were our go to breastfeeding tips for new mothers. As a doula, I support my clients where they are with educational support that they desire. With that perspective I went into this question with the idea of "find a lactation expert!" I was so pleased with their answers! I hope that these tips and tricks are valuable on your breastfeeding journey.
