MYTH #7: AFTER THE BIRTH, IT’S ALL OVER • People often think that once the baby is born, there’s nothing else to do • After the birth there are many activities to finish around the room that may take up to an hour • Birth Coaches and Doulas can also help establish bonding, baby’s first feeding, and give newborn care reminders Jenna Haughbrook~ Email ~727-455-1651~JennaHaughbrook.com
