Interview with the OB: Dr. Dunham on her Experience with Doulas

It’s just been so pleasant to work with you and something that I’ve really enjoyed. We can speak together as professionals with the same goal and my experience was different from what it might have been. It’s so heartwarming to have had you guys there to support me, it was such a good experience for me. I’m just so thankful for you.

West Florida Hospital Tour

West Florida Hospital Tour

West Florida Hospital's Labor and Delivery Unit is called The Family Birthplace. It is a smaller unit than many of the other hospitals in our area with an intimate feeling and calm atmosphere. I have always enjoyed attending births there because they strive to treat each patient individually and allow for her desires to be met when possible.

Motherhood was not what I expected...

Motherhood was not what I expected...

The tears I cried were for what other’s might classify as insignificant. I cried because I had to find a new way to breastfeed, I cried because my once happy baby now screamed all day, I cried because I couldn’t do skin-to-skin, I cried because I couldn’t put him in all the cute outfits, I cried because my child wasn’t ‘normal’.

Self Care

Self Care

....But I am here to tell you that although in the moment it seems like your crying baby or whining toddler needs are more important than yours, they are NOT. Yes, I just said their needs do not trump yours. The day I realized that I needed to take care of myself FIRST instead of last, was the day that I started to feel human again and could devote more energy and love to my sweet boys.
