The 4th Trimester

The 4th trimester refers to the days and weeks immediately after delivery for both mommy and baby.  While your little one is adjusting to the bright lights and sounds of her new environment, the new mommy is busy healing, learning how to take care of herself and newborn, and balance life.

This period is highlighted by distinct physical, emotional, and mental changes that are sometimes overwhelming and confusing for new parents.  We would love to guide you through this transition by bringing an awareness to issues that new parents often face.  With the proper support and mindfulness in place, we hope to help you minimize stress and maximize joy!
