Postpartum & Newborn Consultations

Postpartum & Newborn Consultations

As a society, we spend most of our time preparing for pregnancy and birth. What happens when the 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 to be answered. This is where our Postpartum & Newborn Consultant comes in.

If you have questions on postpartum care for the birthing person or newborn care, we are here to help. Our consultation package offers 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
  • Bathing and infant hygiene
  • Planning your childcare needs
  • Nursery Basics
  • Newborn Safety
  • Troubleshooting issues that may arise
  • Milestones
  • Ways to track the basics of diapers & feeds
  • Pumping basics
  • Answering all your questions
  • And more…
  • Also included is our Sleep Guide for 0-4 Months(pdf)

Once we have established the areas you would like more information on, we can schedule a time that is convenient for you to have our consultation appointment. We want you to be comfortable with our consults and that’s why we offer virtual, phone, and email support.

Not sure what you need? We can discuss which options would be best in our 15-minute, no-cost initial phone consult.
