Postpartum Home Visits

Postpartum Naturopathic In Home Care

Care varies from family to family. I use knowledge and experience as a woman, mother, naturopathic medical doctor, and doula to act as an educational resource for the entire family. I work with you to identify and prioritize your unique needs in order to formulate a plan in the first few days or weeks that baby is home.

As a ND providing postpartum in home care I:

Educate: practical advice, skills to help with parental transition, communication & crying, baby wearing, vaccination education, navigate body changes, access to my personal library, locate resources, services, & classes

  • Self Care: relaxation techniques, body care
