Setting Up Your Home For Parenting
As a new parent, there's plenty of information available on birth planning and baby care - but far less information on how to look after yourself as a parent. Prenatal classes rarely touch on the ergonomics of parenting; how to keep yourself safe, healthy and injury-free while looking after your baby. As parents, you are your baby’s support system - you're important too! Through home visits or online consultations, I assess the home environment and provide recommendations on how to set up your diaper changing area, feeding station, stroller and baby carrier to avoid injury. I also provide information on how to hold your baby so that repetitive strain injuries are avoided.
