High quality support to ease and enhance the first daysweeks and months after childbirth.

Education, non-judgmental support, companionship, assistance with newborn care, family adjustment, meal preparation, light household tasks…the list goes on and on! I offer evidence based information on infant-feeding, emotional and physical recovery from childbirth, infant soothing and coping skills for new parents and will make appropriate referrals when necessary. My services are focused during the postpartum period (first year after childbirth) and more specifically, the baby moon (first 6- 12 weeks).
