As a brand new Mom, or Mom-To-Be, you’re a beginner.
You know there’s not one “right way” to do everything, but … you want to get it right.
And you’re tired.
It can get intense.
As you figure it all out, you deserve pragmatic, non-generic assistance, and reassuring company. I’ll have my eye on you to make sure you’re not falling through the cracks – that you’re being taken care of as you learn to mother your baby.
Home visits are hour-long visits, any time in the first year. We can discuss sleep, transitions, coping with colic, acclimating to motherhood, self-care, weaning, spousal issues, guilt, coping with relatives, introducing solid foods, childcare concerns … what have you!
FOR NEW PARENTS OUTSIDE NYC:
one-hour Skype consults are available for all parenting issues except those that require a clinical breastfeeding assessment. (I can help you locate an IBCLC to see locally.)
My goal is to help you find your sea legs. As you figure out who you are as a Mom, I will support your choices with guidance, advice and mentoring, so that you gain confidence to move through the postpartum period.
Are you an employer, and interested in providing this type of service as part of your employees' benefits package? Please contact me to discuss this further.
