Overview of Care:

Prenatal care:

You will receive two prenatal visits and phone calls after each appointment with your doctor or midwife from 35 weeks onward, access to my library of books, informed, current, and peer-reviewed information on parenting and birthing, and help creating your birth plan. You will also have the freedom to have as many or as few comprehensive conversations surrounding your fears, excitement, and assumptions of birth and parenting. If you elect for the Grouse Grind Package, you will also receive a private, prenatal class tailored for you and your partner.

Birth:

I will be on call 24/7 from 37 weeks until the birth of your baby. During your labor, I will be there to provide assistance to mom and partner for preparation and execution of your birth plan. You will also have use of our TENS machine (read about TENS here) and instruction on how to use it. While at the hospital, I will help translate and ensure you are being advocated for and know the benefits, risks, and advantages to different situations and processes that are proposed. I will be by your side the whole time and will offer emotional support (meditation, focus, etc) and physical support (massage, positioning, rebozo, etc). Perhaps the most important part is the collaboration with your healthcare providers to create a positive and mindful birth experience.

Postpartum:

After the birth of your baby, I offer 1 or 2 postpartum visits depending on the package you choose. During this visit, I can help with anything from establishing breastfeeding, teaching you how to use a pump, bottle sterilization, baby care assistance (diapering, cord care, dressing), babywearing help, laundry, dog walking, help with visitors, light housekeeping, guidance and information on parenting, phone support, sibling support, and sleep support. If you have chosen the Grouse Grind Package, Bodyworker Sydney Spooner will come to your home while I am there for a complimentary 45 minute massage.
