Newborn + Postpartum Guide 2021 | Kingwood Moms

Screams 2 Dreams

Hi mamas! I’m Lauren Davis, a certified pediatric sleep consultant. I’ve always had a passion for health and wellness, but becoming a mother exposed a huge component of my health that I previously took for granted – SLEEP! To say we struggled with sleep with our first child is an understatement. I read books and blogs, talked to friends and family, asked our doctor, and fretted endlessly about how to get my own family sleeping better because we were downright exhausted. Then I discovered the world of sleep consultants and our life was changed!

After having such success working with a sleep consultant, I was inspired to earn my own certification so I could help other families. Sleep consulting has been incredibly fulfilling for me. I have truly been in your shoes, so to provide the guidance and support to improve another family’s life through better rest has been an honor.

We now live in a world where there is so much information at our fingertips that it is easy to become overwhelmed when trying to learn just how exactly parents can help teach their little ones to sleep better. That is where I come in! I create a customized sleep plan that provides parents with clear guidance for strategies that fit their family and offer ongoing support while they follow the plan and encourage their child to develop independent sleep skills. When you teach your child healthy sleep habits, you will gain a happy, playful, curious, and eager to learn child AND you will gain important “you time” and your sleep back!

Screams to Dreams Sleep Consulting offers a variety of sleep packages and services that help families get the rest they deserve from prenatal/newborn through elementary aged children. It’s never too early or too late to create a foundation of healthy sleep habits that your child will rely on for the rest of their life! If you are ready to move from exhausting, frustrating nights to restful, restorative nights, let’s create a customized sleep plan that fits your family today.

Client Success:
“After working on our sleep plan, our daughter is doing amazing and is finally on a consistent schedule! Going to bed is so easy, it used to be awful every single night. Thank you so much for the help, it’s made a massive difference for us.”- Nicole

“Our daughter now sleeps 12 hours straight, all because of you! We lacked a clear plan and consistency before working together and having your support has made all the difference for our family.” – Kaylie

 A little about Houston Placenta Services:
I developed Houston Placenta Services for a very specific reason, to set a high standard for those of us in the Placenta Preparation Industry throughout Houston.

My kitchen was carefully designed and planned over 18 months and built over the span of 6 months. Every detail has been thought out, from the special FRP non porous walling around the sinks and prep areas, to the NSF grade stainless steel preparation tables, shelving and sinks. I practice medical grade sanitary procedures, using the same sanitation products as many major hospitals, wearing protective clothing and using single use utensils.

In short, I love what I do, I adore processing placentas and helping women enter into their postpartum journey on a better note and I take it incredibly seriously. Your placenta should be respected and processed under the highest of standards, and with Houston Placenta Services, I guarantee it will be!

 What are the reported benefits of Placenta Encapsulation?
The placenta is an amazingly complex organ and holds many nutrients such as Prolactin, Oxytocin, Gammaglobulin, Iron and Interferon. As well as many other hormones and nutrients, the particular ones listed may help the mother have a faster recovery, postpartum bleeding may lessen,  breast milk may be more bountiful, overall mood and energy levels may be higher and the mother may rebalance, hormonally sooner than she would normally expect.

How does the process to have my placenta encapsulated look like?
Houston Placenta Services (Formerly Born Free Birthing) is known for making the whole process as simple as possible for new families. I know they are busy and have a newborn baby to devote their time and attention to.

​Once a client books their placenta encapsulation with Houston Placenta Services, they will receive a confirmation email and detailed list of instructions that will include when and how to contact me on the birth day, how to store the placenta after the birth, etc. They will be mailed a placenta transportation kit that is small and discreet. The kit will include storage bags for ice and the placenta. Another list of instructions which will include pictures will be sent along with it. The client simply births their baby and calls or texts me to let me know the placenta is ready for pick up. The placenta will be picked up soon after the birth and processed immediately in the dedicated placenta kitchen and the finished products will be delivered back to the client within 48-72 hours along with full instructions on consumption and storage. I am available for guidance for as long as the placenta products are being consumed. I happily answer any questions my clients may have.

The Good Birth Company

I’m Ashlea Armstrong, a certified birth + postpartum doula with The Good Birth, local to Kingwood and services the Houston area! I discovered my passion for doula work after the two very different birthing experiences of my daughters. Mama, your baby absolutely matters, but you matter too. How you feel and how you are treated during birth imprints on your heart forever. I am passionate about helping women have transformative birthing experiences and committed to teaching couples to be a team in their birth space. Doulas are an investment to your birth team; the support you receive is tailored to your specific needs and preferences. So, let’s talk about you, your baby, and how informed and supported women are empowered during pregnancy, labor and beyond!
 
I offer a full doula support package that includes: one consultation, ongoing phone support throughout your pregnancy, two prenatal meet-ups where we: create your birth plan, discuss ways to prepare your body and mind for labor, discuss partner support, review childbirth education, discuss what to expect during labor and postpartum, provide physical and emotional support throughout labor for you and your partner, immediate postpartum support, and one postpartum home visit. I also offer a separate birth plan + body preparation package that includes two prenatal meet-ups where we will create your birth plan and I provide educational and emotional support during your pregnancy so you are informed, supported, and feel prepared leading into labor and birth!
