Today on the Sacred Window Studies Podcast we talked about the importance of planning for the postpartum time. Andrea is based in the United States where postpartum care is culturally limited. We spoke about the importance of postpartum planning covering aspects of emotional support to logistic support, such as assigning tasks, gathering support and directing support people. Andrea went into depth about what new postpartum caregivers should know and essential tips to support a successful postpartum time. As a postpartum caregiver it is important to know how to stick to basic information, allowing things to be as simple and digestible as possible. We spoke about how to do this while also providing thorough care.
