Preparing for the arrival of your child and taking care of them once they arrive raises lots of questions–from the basics like eating and sleeping to tips on discipline, sibling rivalry, and baby carriers.
Introducing a new column—Ask Kelly. Kelly LaChance-Guertin has been a birth and postpartum doula for the past five years. She is currently a certified birth doula through DONA (Doulas of North America) and a certified childbirth educator. As the co-owner of Bellani Maternity and the mother of two, she experiences first-hand the struggle of balancing work and family, as well as the realities of raising children. In our new column, Ask Kelly, she will answer questions about pregnancy, parenting and childcare. Have a question?
