Postpartum Care

We provide emotional and physical support following the birth of your child.

Aches, weird periods, swelling…Your body goes through a lot after giving birth
If you don’t feel your best after having a baby, it’s no wonder. Your body is recovering from a birth that was, at the very least, physically taxing. It is turning off the pregnancy changes that have held sway for nine months. And it is turning on your mothering systems—from lactation to that jangly alarm that goes off in your head when your baby cries. Some of these changes are not pretty, but they are pretty impressive.
A caregiver can help you go through these changes smoothly by allowing you to have rest while the caregiver is looking after your baby and his siblings.

When you are breast feeding; the caregiver will make you a hot cup of coffee or milk, supports your back with a cushion,
offers you a snack or holds the cell phone for you when it rings.
You will be able to take a nap while the caregiver looks after your baby.

The caregiver can spend hours, days or weeks with you while you are recovering from giving birth to your baby.
