Postpartum & Newborn Consultations

As a society we spend most of our time preparing for pregnancy and birth. What happens when baby arrives and how do we prepare for the transition? Not everyone wants or needs the in-home care of a postpartum doula or newborn care specialist, but do want some support for the transition to postpartum and parenthood. Babies don’t come with manuals. Not all issues with our newborns are medical and don’t warrant a call to the pediatrician, but are important and need answered. This is where our Postpartum & Newborn Consultant comes in.

If you have questions on postpartum care for the birthing person and newborn care, we are here to help. Our virtual consultation package offer support with:

  • Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding/formula/bottle feeding support
  • Engorgement issues
  • Postpartum recovery & challenges
  • Setting up a healthy sleep environment
  • Planning and implementing an overnight routine
  • Promoting healthy sleep habits
  • Creating a feeding/sleep schedule
  • Recommendations for local resources
