Postpartum Support

My services include 1 to 2 postpartum visits. 

  • These visits are usually in the first 2 weeks after delivery.
  • We will make sure that feeding is going well, and that mom and baby are doing well.
  • This is a great time to talk about your birth experience, and answer any questions that you  may have. 

Labor and Delivery Support

I ask that you contact me at the onset of labor and we will evaluate what is going on.

  • We will decide when it is best for me to come and to meet you, at home, or at the hospital.
  • I provide continuous support for you and your husband/support person during labor and delivery. 
  • In the case of a C-section I will support your husband/support person and baby until you are out of surgery.  
  • After the baby is born I will remain with you until breastfeeding is established and you are comfortable with me leaving, usually this is 1 to 3 hours.
