  • A Birthing Class Tailored to You

    Are you a new or expecting Mom? Are you scared and nervous about what’s going to happen when you welcome your little one into the world? Has too much time gone by since your last baby that you forgot how to do certain things? Are you thinking about taking a class on childbirth but not sure which one to take? Do you take a class through the hospital with 20 or more people and get a general tour of the maternity ward or would you like a class that’s intimate and personal based where you can be focused on and have all your questions answered? This is where Mommy’s Way Infant Care and Doula Services can help.  Our desire is to help you have a birthday that you will cherish for a lifetime.  To help you be able to enjoy your precious baby from pregnancy through the transition to home!  As all mothers deserve nurturing care, support and education. Mommy’s Way is so happy to be able to offer this to you. We are hosting a (2) Saturday event series on Saturday, April 20 & April 27, 2019 from 12:00 pm-4:30 pm in Raleigh, NC. Future monthly classes are pending including Hypnobirthing classes!! Here are what families have said about the Doulas of Mommy’s Way: “Debbie is an amazing person. She is caring, extremely gifted with infants (and moms!) and will put you completely at ease the first time you meet her. The skill and knowledge that she brings to the table are extensive” “Debbie is just like having a loving family member in your home. She is willing to help however she can and is a nurturing person with a heart of gold. Debbie is also extremely knowledgeable as a pre-birth and birth doula as well as postpartum doula.” “I can’t say enough about how wonderful Debbie has been!! She is an absolute pleasure to work with, and to be with. She knew my desire was to have a completely natural birth and she helped me achieve that” “ Chelsea is truly top-notch, and I can’t thank her enough for helping us through the birth of our son.” “Chelsea is a wonderful doula that I would recommend to absolutely anyone. She is very supportive and knowledgeable of all a mother’s options during labor and childbirth. She is not afraid to help you when you need it and don’t have the words to ask. “ “With Chelsea, it felt like having a great friend who also happened to know just what to do throughout the process.” “Johanna was amazing. Throughout labor, she had a really positive energy and made me feel supported and safe.I’m so thankful that she was there for me. She offered clarity, positivity, mental support, and a non-judgemental attitude. I would highly recommend her!” “I am so thankful to have had Johanna for the birth of my third child. Through the entire process, i really felt like she had me and my baby’s best interest at heart. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a doula. You will be thankful to have her by your side.” “Johanna will forever hold a very special place in our families hearts. We highly recommend Johanna’s doula services to any pregnant or postnatal mama and family seeking a doula who is compassionate and professional. Johanna’s bedside manner is warm, inviting, and professional.” For more information, please visit our website: http://www.mommyswayinfantcare.com

  • Unswaddle 5 month all with eczema and pacificier

    Hi all the super mommies! I have 5-month-old baby boy and he’s starting to roll over soon, in a matter of time, cuz I can see him arching is back quite often when he lays on his back… So I’m thinking and preparing myself to unswaddle him!! TAADA (horrifying) He’s been swaddle since day one and can only fall asleep with it and with a pacifier! And he’s been having this eczema skin which makes him scratch himself all the time, (his face, legs…most of the time bloody! I have his nails cut and trim every day). I tried once to unswaddle him with one arm and he just kept knocking his dummy out and scratch himself… So my question is what would you do? andy similar stories and successful or unsuccessful stories or tips? At this moment we are room sharing and the sleep training is quite successful (i don’t need to hold him or rock him to sleep, he can sleep by himself after the bed routine) But I guess once I unswaddle him, everything will be different huh?

    Posted March 3, 2018 at 10:02 pm
    The itching is the worst! Be sure and chat with his doctor about medical management of eczema. Ther…

  • Boggie Sucker Machine

    We were given an electronic nose plunger thing at my baby shower. It plays music and does am awesome job of clearing our little boys nose. We normally don’t use it though because he hates it and screams like we’re torturing him and he had gotten good at letting us use the old school nose plunger thing a little. But lately he has had a little cold and his nose is running like crazy and the old school one is just not cutting it. I have had to use the battery operated machine one and it works amazingly and gets everything out of his nose every time I just feel like complete crap doing it because the whole time he’s crying screaming and trying to get away from me. And not a normal tantrum or whiny on ornery cry his whole face turns red his body stiffens up and even though I don’t think it’s hurting him and he acts just fine when it’s all done it kills me. I wish the old school nose plunger saying worked just as good as the machine one does but it just doesn’t . please help!! should I keep using the machine or just do the best I can with the old school one???

  • Soothing Techniques Are Not Working! Could it be gas?

    My newborn often cries very hard for 20-30 min at a time. I have heard that many times parents think their newborn has gas but they just aren’t using soothing techniques correctly. However, I feel like I have tried all methods swaddling, sucking, rigorous swinging etc. How can I tell if it is gas or just a fussy newborn?

  • 9 months old suddenly hates eating and gags

    My daughter has been eating solid food since she was 6 months old and have basically tried everything including chicken, turkey and beef with some veggies and fruits but not forgetting rice cereal and oatmeals. Up till recently, she has been gagging on food that I feed her and then refuse to eat. She is also taking less amount of milk but still taking them regardless. Just 20% less then the normal and her weight is steady. She did have a cold a few days ago and her pediatrician checked her and confirms she has no sore throat but just a normal cold. She has not started any finger foods nor one of those yogurt bites because ive tried the yogurt bites and i think she almost choked on it. Any other moms out there experienced the same thing? I did some research and some say to try finger foods and some say it is just a phase but it can take between a few weeks to many months. Her daycare teacher also said that it is normally and she would not worry about it but as a first time mom to a baby that previously would eat all day and anything that goes in her mouth, i am a little bit concerned. Any ideas?

    Posted June 28, 2016 at 3:42 pm
    Hi Diane! Thanks for the update! So glad she is eating again!
