Every family is unique, accordingly my services can be personalized to each family and their needs. Regardless of where you are planning to birth baby, we will dive into your beliefs and expectations around labor, birth, and the postpartum period. Together, we will explore your physical and emotional strengths, as well as any hesitations or potential bloackages to ensure you’re completely prepared.
We'll go over your questions, and hesitations you have regarding the birth. Discuss comfort measures, as well as practice them! During these visits we can also create a plan for care during your postpartum period. This is a great option for someone who needs a little guidance and support but may not want full birth support.
The fourth trimester is a special time as you and baby get to know one another. It can be a challenging time as well. During this time I can provide emotional support for the family as you transition into your new roles, and find your flow. We can go over any feeding issues you may be experiencing, general newborn care, how to babywear and practice with a carrier, or simply get a shower and nap in. I'm also happy to help with light meal prep, and tidying. Please note, daytime visits are scheduled between 10am and 5pm.
PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION & TINCTURES
Although it may sound unappetizing to some, mammals have a longstanding history of consuming their placenta. Consuming one's placenta in their postpartum period can provide a boost in energy, help lessen postpartum depression symptoms, and help increase milk supply. Using the Traditional Chinese Method, utmost care, and respect I can prepare your placenta in capsule and/or tincture form, for you to consume as you heal.
POSTPARTUM FAMILY MEAL PREP
The postpartum period or 4th trimester or cuarentena is a sacred time meant to be spent healing and resting. It is my belief that one of the biggest ways we can support birthing people, and their families through this transition in through healing foods. Based in traditional postpartum meals, with a splash of variety for our modern day lives these meals are meant to uplift you, and your family during this time.
