Postpartum specific healthcare is vital and dedicated care for individuals who are in their postpartum period. This period can last weeks, months or even years after childbirth. The journey through conception, pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum recovery changes your body in ways we can only begin to conceive of. I am dedicated to listening to your story, gathering all of the information and meeting you where you’re at. Whether you have a brand new baby at home or find yourself needing this care as your child grows older.

The time period after a person gives birth (by any means) is deemed the postpartum (post-delivery) period. Often people are given a finite and predetermined length of time that this occurs for, typically 6 weeks. I truly see this as an individual experience for each person that cannot have a predetermined length of time placed on it. The experience a person has during their postpartum period is shaped by many aspects, including preconception health, the experience of pregnancy and how that impacted the health of their body, their labor and delivery experience (the mental, emotional and physical aspects) and the time given to recover from the journey of pregnancy into new parenthood (whether it be your first child or subsequent children).
