Postpartum Support

Once your precious babe arrives, the big job of caring for your child, while also caring for yourself as a new parent, begins. Postpartum support is all about helping the new family get the rest, nourishment  information, and household help they need to transition into this sacred time feeling held and deeply cared for.

Fee

$30 - $45 per hour depending on services asked for as well as extended travel costs

 I believe that everyone deserves to have support on this journey. If a family really wants support, I am always willing to work something out through sliding scales or payment plans. In the tradition of the granny midwives, I’m also not opposed to bartering for services.
