Nurturing New Families: A Guide to Supporting Parents and Their Newborn Babies (Paperback)Naomi Kemeny (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Supporting a family in the days and weeks after a baby is born is a precious gift indeed - as the mother recovers her strength and responds to her baby's needs, the care of a postnatal doula, friend or family member can be invaluable. In this guide to warm, mother- and- baby-centred postnatal care, Naomi Kemeny draws on her wealth of experience as a midwife, children's nurse and postnatal doula to explain in detail how to 'mother the mother' - by listening to what she needs and supporting her as she adapts to her new role. This insightful book is both a useful guide to the work of a postnatal doula, and a must-read for anyone wanting to help a new family cope with those intense yet magical early days with a newborn.
