Adilah Yelton, a Birth and Postpartum Doula
Childbirth and care is not a simple job! That’s why they say it takes a village, and Adilah would agree. Handling life with a toddler and a newborn baby, although a very rewarding and a positive experience, came with many challenges. Even with her and her husband’s parents there to help, she still felt that she needed some extra hands on deck. Especially because she struggled to find the time to take care of her own needs, she decided to hire a postpartum doula. As a guest on the podcast, My Happy Home Birth, she shares the importance of self-care postpartum, and how a postpartum doula can help you relax and heal in ways that are truly necessary after giving birth.
She also discusses her home birth experience that she had with Midwifery Care NYC during her first pregnancy four years ago. Adilah herself is now a birth and postpartum doula, working out of Houston, Texas. We are so proud and excited to see her thriving as an advocate for the health and autonomy of birth-people.
