Postpartum & Newborn Care

Midwifery postpartum care involves the assessment and monitoring of the birthing person and baby in the postpartum period- this includes a physical exam of the the birthing person, an assessment of the baby’s health, providing counseling and education about physical and emotional changes, recommendations  on nutrition and lifestyle choices, providing nursing support, and helping to identify any potential health concerns, with the goal of helping you recover physically and emotionally from the stress of childbirth and to adjust to your new roles as parents.

“When we encourage new parents to ‘treasure these moments because they don’t last forever,’ we need to remember to also reassure them that they will survive these moments because they don’t last forever.” — L.R. Knost

What to Expect

Services Included

Midwives believe continuity of care is important even, after the baby is born. Every new parent needs to be given adequate care, support, and nurturing during the postpartum period, whether it's their first child or not. Our postpartum care will monitor your healing, baby's well being, support nursing, and focus on your physical and emotional well-being. We continue to be on-call for you by phone or text to ensure that you have the support you need.  Care will continue for 9 weeks postpartum, but this isn't good bye. By this time, we should have formed a relationship that lasts a lifetime. I am happy to continue to be a resource for natural remedies and general health advice for the families I am honored to have served and grown to love.
