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 support you as you continue to adjust and connect you with any resources you might benefit from.
Typically, we meet before the birth of your baby for an interview. We can do this with masks on, outdoors, or via FaceTime or Zoom. This is a great opportunity for you to ask me any questions you might have.
If after our initial interview we decide to move forward, we schedule a prenatal visit to talk about your anticipated needs and to develop a postpartum plan together. We create a plan that is comfortable, flexible, and customized for you to receive the support that you need and want during this time.
I typically support families from birth to 12 weeks postpartum.
