In this episode, I sit down with Kristin Eapen, a birth doula and Lamaze certified childbirth educator to discuss:

  • Reasons why new moms have a hard time asking for help
  • How physical recovery after birth is similar to recovery after a knee surgery
  • Suggestions to support your entire household (including you)
  • Suggestions to support the new mom
  • Tips for the times she is resistant to your help
  • What does rest actually look like and why is it important?
  • The importance of prioritizing short periods of time for herself

Kristin Eapen (LCCE, CD(DONA)) is a birth doula and Lamaze certified childbirth educator with the immense privilege of serving families on the traditional, unceded territory of the Syilx/Okanagan people in Kelowna, BC. She is an active member of the birthing community, most notably an antenatal educator at a local maternity clinic, as well as the BC Interior rep and board member of the BC Doula Services Association. When she's not teaching or at a birth you will probably find her learning about dinosaurs, colouring unicorns, or discovering the outdoors with her husband and three kiddos (Jonah (10), Sophie (8) and Ezra (5) ).

More about the C-Section Program:
This initiative is sponsored by Health Canada as a part of the competitive Innovative Solutions Canada program, for which RxPx has been selected. The program is designed for mothers who are expecting a planned c-section, or who may have to undergo an unplanned c-section. The program includes evidence-based content to help mothers prepare for and recover from their c-section. Participants will also have the opportunity to connect with and support other mothers who are anticipating a c-section or educating themselves about a c-section in case it is something they will need.
For a printable PDF version of the suggestions:
STEP 1: download the ‘Stronger Together’ App from Google Play or Apple App Store
STEP 2: use code C-SECTION when onboarding
STEP 3: go to the discover section of the app located at the bottom of the screen
