Postpartum Care

Birth is just the beginning of your journey as a parent, and I recognize the importance of support in the postpartum period to ensure continued health of you, your baby, and your family.

Postpartum is more than just healing after the birth, though that is a very important part. It is also about having the support of your family and friends so you can focus on your relationship with your baby. It is about feeling comfortable and well-rested enough to be present in your baby’s first months. It is about integrating your birth experience into the rest of your life and finding peace in what unfolds.

For these reasons, I offer postpartum care for mother and baby that focuses on all of aspects of parenthood and supporting a newborn. I normally provide a 24-48 hour visit, a 2 week visit, and a 6 week visit. However, additional visits are included in the fee, if needed, as well as my availability over the phone to provide support and advice.
