Deborah Clemente, MA speaks about "The Spiritual Journey of Postpartum Depression" and "Holistic Health for Postpartum Balance"
SERVICES Postpartum Doula / Baby Nurse Nurturing and supporting new moms and their families is such a joy for me. It's an honor to walk alongside a new mom during one of the most profound times in her life. Truly it is a rite of passage and I believe the mother deserves to be celebrated and honored for her role in creation and her transition into an empowered mama. My approach to doula work is unique. I'm not just providing support, I am holding an intention that each parent find their own strengths and lead with them. I hope to bring humor when it is needed and peace where there may be unrest. Through education and inspiration I'll help you manage the practical, physical and emotional aspects of your new life. First and foremost, I'll make sure you're getting the right nutrition and uninterrupted sleep. I'll help teach you about baby care and breastfeeding and give you my favorite tips for gassy tummies and sore nipples that really work. Whatever your needs are, they'll be met whether by me or by referral.
Postpartum Depression Assessment & Healing Plan When a new mom is having a difficult time eating, sleeping and coping emotionally she wants to know why. By doing a thorough assessment of symptoms and exploring the family matrix we can identify key areas of imbalance and begin creating a customized healing plan which includes testing for neuro-hormonal and nutritional imbalances.
Integrated Therapy / Energy Healing I combine talk therapy, foot reflexology and BodyTalk energy medicine to help moms release deep, intense emotions that are creating great depression or anxiety. This calming bodywork removes the issues stored deep within our tissues and cells and promotes balance.
Mini Coaching via phone/email/skype When dealing with crisis situations, there may be a need for a new mom to have more support during the week. This is best provided with prepaid mini coaching sessions - you can purchase them ahead of time to eliminate extra paperwork. Phone sessions are $1 per minute.
Holistic Health Counseling in person or via phone/email/skype Many new moms are experiencing neuro-hormonal imbalance because of poor nutrition and health habits. I gently teach the effective and productive use of rest, clean air, sunshine, pure water, whole foods, exercise, self-nurturing, empowerment and soul centered life tools to help build a foundation for Postpartum Balance.
Postpartum Depression Screening & Education By week 26 of pregnancy if note earlier, it's a good idea to screen for risk factors for postpartum depression so the family can begin working on creating a healing plan to prevent or minimize imbalance. This is actually an extremely empowering and healing process! Risk factors we'll discuss are:
-History of Menstrual / Hormonal Imbalance (thyroid, PMS, Infertility, etc)
-History of depression, anxiety, panic, obsessive thoughts or behavior, mania
-History of addiction & self medication
-History of abuse
-Prior episode with Postpartum Imbalance
-Baby's personality, health or challenges
-Single parent challenges
-Expectations of self and others
