When it comes to being a doula we are lucky enough to support families in many ways, wearing many different hats. Just as our favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers, we play different roles at different points throughout “the big game”, (labor and during the postpartum stage as well)!! As Monday Night Football approaches take a look at our latest blog…
Obviously, everytime time a baby was born Aaron Rodgers would jump up and do the doublecheck without hesitation.
BJ Raji would show you how to keep dancing through your contractions –
To show you how to stay focused and how to drive through those contractions you could certainly count on Lacy.
Jeff Janis would say “I may be just starting my journey, but I’ve got this!”
When those contractions become intense Mathews will be there and show you just how to tackle them.
Even if you get knocked down and things don’t go as planned, Abbrederis will show you to keep your faith strong until you reach your end goal.
Nelson would most definitely have a discussion with the doctor on who makes a better catch (not a doula thing but you know we had to “toss” this in).
And when in need of a motivational pep talk, expect to hear one from Daniels.
As your pregnancy goes on don’t get discouraged if you jumped on the bandwagon of another team because they come highly recommended, (*cough* Peppers *cough*) only to find out they aren’t getting you to where you’d like to be. Welcome home Julius.
Finding a team that fits your family best is going to leave you cheering on your game day! Creating a strong support fan base is essential to your victory celebration! We at Green Bay Doulas work closely with your medical providers to ensure you have strongest strategies and are ready for any play!
Here’s to a great season, GO PACK GO!
