Aelwen began her postpartum experience on the operating table after an unexpected c-section. She was surprised at what she felt was a “vacuum of postpartum care” after leaving the hospital, especially regarding regaining her core strength. She loved having a doula every step of the way, including for processing her birth and for assistance during her first few weeks postpartum.
Here are links to some of the resources she mentions:
