RootMama hosted an online workshop entitled, No Mom is an Island: Creating a Postpartum Paradise for You and Your Baby, with Sis. Casey Muhammad. All participants were eligible to win complimentary postpartum service in their home by RootMama Maternal Care.
We were thrilled to announce that Falisha Y. of Mansfield, TX won our prize! Falisha is the mother of Bentley. We met Bentley when he was 9 weeks old. Below, Falisha shares some of her thoughts regarding the postpartum services she received from RootMama.
"RootMama provided me meal preparation, light housekeeping, breastfeeding support, emotional support, community resources, time for exercise, laundry, and referrals.
While absolutely exhilarating, having a new baby comes with a variety of challenges. Having Freya come by for postpartum support was delightful for my family. Being able to ask questions, share ideas, and even just talk with her was very reassuring. She had access to so much information. When I brought up problems and concerns, she had solutions, and good ones!
The best part of having a doula would have to be the encouragement aspect. One of my main goals is to be in the best health and lose the baby weight I had gained, not only for myself but so I can be around for many years for my new baby. Freya went on a walk with me and the baby, showed me a quick recipe on how to make healthy food in a fraction of time, and gave me resources to motherly groups that would keep me active and accountable after she departed.
I would have to say my perception of doula services absolutely changed after my visit with RootMama. I had no clue that they had so much knowledge when it comes to the postpartum woman's needs. Whether it was breastfeeding suggestions or nutritional guidance, Freya had a plethora of knowledge and guidance.
I will most definitely use a doula in the future. I regret not having one before delivery, but am happy I didn't miss out completely on the experience of getting to connect with RootMama and all they have to offer. The webinar they hosted literally saved my sanity and was refreshing to hear RootMama explain the hormonal and postpartum feelings I was under at the time was absolutely normal.
If Baby Bentley could talk, he would say thank you for encouraging my mother to stay on track with diet and exercise. This will keep us together and healthy for many years. P.S - you did a wonderful job putting my clothes away and getting me to sleep. :)
I think RootMama covered all bases on the postpartum visit. I would like to keep in contact to learn of events and webinars of interest.
I would tell any woman who was considering hiring RootMama to stop thinking about hiring, and just do it! A doula from RootMama will be your biggest advocate. She will tell you what your options are and provide emotional support after the baby arrives. You can not lose if you hire RootMama"

Do I get to do a testimonial for her? Well, I'm all for charting new territory. Falisha was an amazing client to work with. She used tools she learned during our webinar which included empowering those around you who want to help. As a doula, I have ideas in mind about how I want to help or what information I want to share, however, I truly desire to help mothers in specific areas that they need. When I arrived to Falisha's home, she had a list of things for me to do and an idea of the main things she wanted to accomplish during her appointment. I definitely felt like I was a help. Baby Bentley was beyond adorable. I was proud of both of them for working through breastfeeding challenges. It takes a lot of patients and a lot of community support. Overall, it feels good to share love, support and information with new mothers.
