Know birth recovery and how bodies heal after birth. I draw on my knowledge and experience of the postpartum period to help you rest and heal in the best way for you and your family.
Know newborn care - I can help answer questions, provide assistance, and most importantly, reassure you that you are doing a great job as a new parent!
Assist you and your partner in carrying out a postpartum plan: this includes drawing on the community that you already have, reflecting on your family/heritage/chosen family's postpartum healing traditions, and deciding what is best for you and your family.
Offer individualized hands-on care: I meet with you to make a plan that works with the rhythm of your life - sometimes this means doing laundry throughout the day or cooking a nourishing meal.
As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I provide individualized lactation support if you choose to breastfeed.
Listen to your concerns in creating a safe, non-judgmental space. There is nothing you can't share with me about your experience - I want to hear all of your joys, concerns, little and big accomplishments, and frustrations.
Connect you to resources in the community.
Serve as an ally for you and your family, in and outside the hospital setting.
