I'm Pregnant, Now What? (pt.1)

2:28 PM

"Doula Kayla, I just found out that I am two months pregnant. What should I do now?"

I get this question a lot.

Finding out that you're pregnant can be an exciting time, but it can also be a bit overwhelming. I always try and let the folks that follow my work that I LOVE when my clients contact me as early as possible during their pregnancy journey - even before they get pregnant.

So, you're pregnant -- Now What?

Your first order of business is to start researching and interviewing doulas, midwives, and ob/gyn's. These people, whether you decide to have only one or all three, are going to be so helpful when it comes to your health and wellness during the next few months and maybe even the next year.

There are a lot of different ways to go about searching for the right team for you, your family, and your wee one. You can usually find birthing communities within your city and state that have amazing resources for you to use including their own in-house doulas and birth workers.

I always suggest finding a doula first. This way your doula can provide you with their directory of midwives and ob/gyn's that have the same praxis and practice as they do.

I hope this helps.
Happy Pregnancy!
