Planning for the post-birth period
The months after your baby arrives are a time of great change both for parents and their little one. It’s important to have a plan for how you will manage this change, and strategies for supporting yourself and your family during this time. Your previous routines and roles are likely to change; I work with parents to develop a post-birth plan for ensuring adequate nutrition, finding a support network, reintegrating valued activities into your day, and sleep strategies. I also provide education on infant behavior and development so parents can develop realistic expectations for the post-birth period.
