Postpartum Care

Support for new parents is just as important as labor and birth support.  "The fourth trimester" refers to that magical yet transitional time when you bring your new baby home and adjust to your new normal.  Postpartum doula support is designed to make that transition smooth so you can enjoy the beginning of parenthood feeling fully supported and confident.
