Labor & Birth Support

Labor and birth may be one of the most transformational and impacting moments of a woman and baby's life. The support that a woman receives before and during labor lends to the majority of her birth outcome. A Labor and Birth Support professional can help women create the birth of their dreams, make the discomforts of labor manageable, and instill confidence and calm for both the mother and partner by providing informational, physical emotional support. 

 

Postpartum Support

A Postpartum Support Professional takes care of the mother and her need by helping the her become familiar with healthy newborn behaviors, sleeping patterns, and breastfeeding habits during a time when both mother and baby are vulnerable and recovering from birth. 

When a new mother is cared for and supported well, the whole family benefits and her baby thrives.
