a la carte Postpartum

Midwifery care fits into any setting a family chooses for birth, including those occurring in a hospital. We feel passionate about making our attentive and woman-centered model inclusive and accessible to every family that desires it. Women birthing with other providers are able to receive our dynamic postpartum care as a part of this package, which includes 6 weeks of in-home postpartum care for mother and baby.

POSTPARTUM SUPPORT:

Your hospital-based provider will discharge you from the hospital and in most cases not see you again for 6 weeks. We know for a fact you will need more professional care during that time and beyond, and as midwives we bring it to you! Feeling well supported and cared for in these beginning weeks can deeply impact your emotional and physical well-being postpartum.

We first visit you in your home around postpartum days 3 and 7. We continue postpartum home visits at week 2, 4 and 6. We think this extended care postpartum helps build confidence, community and connectedness for the family- we want to see you thrive! Postpartum visits last up to one hour in your home, leaving enough time for clinical tasks and a robust amount of time for supporting the other important dynamics of this tender season.

Midwifery care can make a huge difference in families feeling prepared and supported as they navigate the transition into postpartum and parenthood. We are inspired by the difference we see in moms and babies when they choose this level of care for themselves. Please contact us with your questions and/or to get on our schedule.
