Typically, we'll meet before the birth of your baby for an interview. We can do this outdoors, with masks on, or via FaceTime or Zoom. This is a great opportunity for you to ask me any questions you might have.
If your baby is already here, congratulations! Please know that any struggles you may be having now will not last forever! I would love to assist you in your adjustment and to connect you with any resources you might benefit from.
If after our initial interview we decide to move forward, we'll schedule an intake visit to talk about your anticipated needs and to develop a postpartum plan together. We'll create a plan that is comfortable, flexible, and customized for you to receive the support that you need or want during this time.
