If you are a family who is birthing in a hospital setting, you will be sent home with almost zero postpartum care. For those of us who have had babies we know that the pregnancy and birth are so much work but after the baby comes the even harder work begins. You deserve a midwife who comes to your home to support your transition into parenthood. Not only will I weigh your baby and take your blood pressure but I am there to answer any and all questions, support your breast/chest feeding journey, help you understand your postpartum body and how to heal it, help you with sleep for yourself and your little, and support your overall wellbeing and shift into a new family mode.
