Postpartum Support

"When a woman has a child, giving birth to a boy, she shall be unclean, for seven days, with the same uncleanness as during her menstrual period....and then she shall spend thirty-three more days in a state of blood purity; she shall not touch anything sacred nor enter the sanctuary till the days of her purification are fulfilled"

-Leviticus 12: 2,4

The fourth trimester, also known as the first three months of motherhood, is a beautiful and raw time of your postpartum journey. During this time the mother needs to be nurtured and fed so she can then nurture and feed her own baby.

My approach to postpartum is wholistic. I love to focus on supporting the mother physically, mentally, and spiritually to assist in her healing as a whole. I accomplish this by providing warm meals and drinks during my visits, being a listening ear to allow her to talk and process her motherhood journey, provide insights and resources where desired, and allowing her time to rest and care for herself while providing a comforting presence and warm arms for her baby to rest if desired. 

 

I also love carrying the faith-based birth into the postpartum period by providing guidance on how to incorporate and embrace her faith while on this new journey of motherhood.

As my postpartum care is solely focused on being present to the mother, I do not provide child care or housework. I can do very light housework, such as washing the dishes in the sink or even doing one load of laundry while I am over, as well as preparing snacks for your young kiddos. I can provide referrals and resources to assist in those areas of your family if you desire.
