"In giving birth to our babies, we may find that we give birth to new possibilities within ourselves"

BABY CARE CLASSES
Because babies do not come with instructions.
Baby care builds parents confidence by teaching parents newborn norms, evidence-based health and safety recommendations and physical skills such as bathing, swaddling, suctioning and temperature taking.
AND POSTPARTUM COUNSELING
“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new."- Osha
Pregnancy and the postpartum period is one of the most physically and psychologically intense periods a woman will ever go through.
With 15-20% of woman experiencing perinatal mood disorders (depression, anxiety, obsessive and/or intrusive thoughts, PTSD and psychosis) having a Postpartum Support International certified doctor is essential to effective treatment. Whether it is days or months after delivery, we take treatment very seriously and as such, we may accommodate in-home therapy sessions when childcare stands in the way of treatment. While maternal mental health is highlighted, we expertly treat postpartum depression in fathers and support couples experiencing difficulties in adjusting to their new parental roles.
A Happier, Healthier Relationship
Relationships change over time and sometimes the help of a professional is needed. Whether is it the birth of a baby, work/life balance or communication patterns that are presenting difficulties, our staff can help navigate that path to a healthier relationship
