Frequently students return to class and express how blindsided they felt by the demands of the first few weeks of life with a newborn baby. Much time had been spent preparing for labor and birth but many felt unprepared for the reality of this transition.

In this episode of Yoga|Birth| Babies, we pull back the curtain and dig into the nitty-gritty of what to expect in the first week as a new parent. Long time postpartum doula and Certified Lactation Counselor, Meema Spadola lovingly shares her vast knowledge about this challenging and precious time of transition. She covers everything from birth recovery to how much sleep new parents really get to handling demanding visitors. Whether you are a new parent, expectant person or someone offering support to new families, Meema will give you solid advice.
