Postpartum Prep

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.

All transitions take time, especially the transition from pregnancy to postpartum. Whether this is your 5th or very first child, preparing ahead of time for the postpartum transition can make all the difference.  

 

Join Maggie for a 1 hr preparation session to learn:

-What to expect during the postpartum period

-how long does this period last

-how can you prepare during your third trimester

-tips to help make the transition smoother

-ask questions about breastfeeding, food, physical changes, and more

Also receive a postpartum prep packet to help with planning, snack ideas, conversations starters, and exclusive discount codes!

Investment:

$50-one hour session

Words of Praise

I cannot say enough good things about Maggie. She is a complete gem: a peaceful, nurturing, radiant presence. If you ever wondered what it might be like to have Mother Mary attend your birth, Maggie will be able to bring you an approximation! She was with us for a marathon labor - 40 hours! - and we truly don't know what we would have done without her. We wanted to find someone who could speak to the spirituality of childbirth from the Catholic perspective, and Maggie did just that. From the beginning, Maggie had such a calming and truthful presence. I loved talking over childbirth with her - as a first time mom, I truly had no idea what to expect, and felt overwhelmed by everyone's opinions. Maggie provided such a firm foundation when it came to questions and general thoughts about delivery..... She brought an immediate sense of peace and calm to a room that was severely lacking it! She jumped right into giving me hip and back compressions and coaching me through contractions. Somehow she still also paying attention to everyone in the room. My midwife’s hair tie fell out, and she kept trying to move her hair out of her eyes with her shoulder. Maggie found a hair tie for her and asked if she could pull her hair back. It reminded me of what the Virgin Mary might do at a birth: attend to the new mom, while also making sure the new dad rests and eats, and doing something small but very helpful for the birthing attendant. Our son was born safe and sound and I felt fantastic, mentally and emotionally. Maggie was such a huge part of that. She took some breathtaking photos of my husband and me meeting our son. I was so sad to see her go - she felt like family by that point! We love Maggie and cannot recommend her enough. If you’re looking for a doula to help guide you through pregnancy and birth - you can stop looking; you just found her!
