New babies are precious little overlords. They require feeding every 1 1/2 to 2 hours, snuggles approximately 22 hours per day, and being walked, wiped, or bounced the other two hours. It’s really something to expect an exhausted, hormonal, sore, engorged new parent to dive into this new 24/7 lifestyle with aplomb.
The good news is, you don’t have to. Whether this is your first baby and you aren’t really sure how it all works, or it’s your fourth baby and you aren’t really sure how you’ll feed them all and juggle a baby too, our postpartum and newborn care specialists are here to keep your life running like a well-oiled machine.
From bathing and diapering your newborn, to checking out any weird spots or noises…from showing you the best swaddling techniques to helping you come up with a workable eat/sleep routine…with our expert and loving guidance you’ll build confidence and banish worries of “doing it wrong”.
The baby is pretty important, but you require care and feeding as well. We can help you have a smoother and less awkward and painful recovery from childbirth; prep you some healthy snacks; put away laundry; or come along to the doctor so you don’t have to carry that heavy car seat. You’ll also enjoy a completely nonjudgmental and compassionate listening ear as you go through this vulnerable time of hormonal fluctuation and stress.
To begin the process of ensuring a smoother postpartum recovery period, contact Michelle, our Family Care Coordinator. Our forward-thinking clients purchase packages of hours, to be used at their discretion for daily or weekly support. Michelle will walk you through the process of securing your postpartum and newborn specialist and help you determine how many hours you need.
