Here at Newborn Mothers we often discuss traditional cultural postpartum care, but equally important is looking at funding and systems of postpartum support available in countries today. Layla is Irish and had two babies in Germany and a third in Ireland. In this interview she reveals the difference in the care she received in each country including a discussion of her experience of "wochenbett” meaning weeks in bed.

Layla has been passionate about women’s health for many years now, sparked almost always by experiences she has had herself along the way, be it fertility challenges, pregnancy adventures, premature babies or post-partum care. Layla is a Five Element Acupuncturist specialising in women’s health, a post-partum professional and mum of 3 little ones. Having lived in Berlin for 8 years, she returned to her native Ireland last year, where she lives with her family and 2 kittens by the sea. She blogs about her motherhood journey here: www.woodforthetrees.blog, shares her favourite recipes, acupuncture and living seasonally tips here: www.laylaomara.com and is really excited to be launching her new website www.mother-born.com in the new year, which will focus on helping mums-to-be thrive in the first 40 days after birth and beyond.
