My passion lies in the postpartum period. I help parents navigate the needs of caring for a newborn to allow your first few months together to be as comfortable as possible. With additional support, new parents can ease into a more optimal postpartum adjustment period and begin to form a special bond together. My role is to support parents in their emotional and physical recovery by offering gentle guidance through self-care, schedule changes and adjustments in the home after welcoming a new baby.
$30/hour can include the following types of support:
Birth processing or emotional support and nurturing for the new mother
Education on postpartum issues
Basic feeding support and referrals as needed
Guidance in infant care or soothing techniques
Help preparing snacks, meals and/or meal planning
Very light housekeeping or organizational support
