I help you stay strong and calm during birth. I will offer comfort measures, coping techniques and constant presence to help you create a satisfying birth experience. With education, physical and emotional support I support your transition in adding a child to your family.
Postpartum Care- I teach you how to: care for your new baby, bathe, swaddle, sooth, and give infant massages. I assess breastfeeding and also care for baby while you rest or get cleaned up.
I provide tactical support for families by doing light housekeeping which can include laundry, house tidying, sweeping, cooking meals, dishes, and assisting parents with the care of older siblings. I am the extra pair of hands moms and dads need at this pivotal time.
In-home assessment for the breastfeeding mom and infant. Some things I check are latch, positioning, and swallow patterns.
At times a family just needs to re-set their sleep. I tend baby while parents get a full night’s rest and are then able to continue forward, refreshed and with a new outlook on life. Nurslings can also be brought in at feeding time, then settled back to sleep for mom.
