"Love this Book!! This Book was so helpful to my husband and I when we were sleep deprived and needed a quick refresher on what to do. I also love the fact that it's a book that is quick to the point and gives you the most important information. It is so hard to sit down and read some of these mommy to be books that are 300 + pages and they talk in circles. This book was a awesome read and I recommend it to all my new mommies to be!"

Welcome to Motherhood. A look into the postpartum fase.

March 15th 2010.

The ICAN of San Diego invited author Gea to share her special story about delivering and receiving postpartum care on two different continents within 20 months and the manual she translated “The First 8 Days of Being a Mom”. She was accompanied by postpartum doula Doris E. Kitchin PCD, DONA.Doris Kitchin, postpartum doula


It was an interesting evening with a wonderful group of woman that empower and inform each other about this live changing event – giving birth. Everyone filled in a postpartum care survey with questions related to this subject and one of the expectant moms won a copy of The First 8 Days of Being a Mom. She gained the highest score.

It was clear that although all the members were pretty well informed everyone learned something new about postpartum care. And that you can’t do it alone but need help. From a postpartum doula or someone close to you. And the manual can be of great help with that. We call it the ‘paper doula’.

A big thank you goes to Alisa and Shannon for making this evening possible and Babies by the Sea Boutique for their hospitality.
