Births, Babies and Beyond was started as an idea after many shifts of seeing first time moms-to be, and dads-to be, struggle to cope in the labor room. As a labor room nurse, in a very high volume maternity hospital, married to a psychologist, I would often think of women whom I just interacted with and became very concerned about their preparedness for heading home with a newborn.
If these women were struggling in the labor room, how were they going to cope at 3am with a newborn who has been screaming for hours? If the behavior they displayed while in the labor room was any indication, I was very concerned.
After speaking with peers and researching current statistics my concerns were heightened. I realized that women, especially first time moms, really needed a place that could provide a range of services for them, both prior to delivery and throughout their journey as parents.
And so the concept of Birth, Babies and Beyond was developed. Teamed with Abrams Psychological Services, we are able to provide any and every service a family could need. Individualized Childbirth Education, Breastfeeding Counseling, CPR, Counseling for couples dealing with infertility, Postpartum Depression Groups and Individual Therapy, Bereavement Counseling, Couples Therapy, ADHD Assessments, and the list goes on and on.
