More than just caring for baby, we care for you.

 

It's here. The day you've been awaiting has arrived: your baby's birth day. You have read all the parenting books, know all the safety standards and have prepared all the things for your baby's arrival. Swing? Check! Bassinet? Check! You may have arranged for childcare for older siblings or pets and are ready.

What about when you return home?

The recovery process can sometimes take longer or a larger toll than we had anticipated. Often times we place unrealistic expectations of bouncing back in days vs. weeks after giving birth to a child.

Our society has placed unrealistic expectations on mothers.

Couples using a surrogate often find they also need help and support through bringing home baby. Family and friends may forget that, though you don't need physical recovery time, you will need emotional recovery time as well as a helping hand while you and your baby adjust and transition.

With the loss of the "tribe" mentality by modern standards, support is small to non-existent.

We are ready to take on any day to day tasks during your postpartum period. We will be a companion who comes to you with no judgment or bias. We want to see you succeed in your parenting, whatever style it is. We will help ease the transition for you, your family and your new baby. We are up to date on all the latest safety recommendations and trained on how to address postpartum issues.
