With almost 30 years of experience in the most beautiful job in the world!
As a home birth midwife, a clinic's head midwife, a development midwife in Madagascar, or a teaching midwife for the next generation.
"Seek and accept help!
Perhaps you, too, will find that the first time you spend with your child is both enchanting and stressful.
When children wake up frequently at night, parents frequently do not get enough sleep, sometimes for long periods of time.
You're exhausted, drained, and possibly depressed and hopeless.
Then tell your midwife or pediatrician about your anxious circumstances; they are familiar with the challenges parents face in the initial weeks of their child's existence and can help you find answers.
You can also get aid through parent-child groups, outpatient clinics, and early intervention programs.
And remember: you have already conquered a great deal in your life, you can do this!"
