Have a new little sweet pea at home and feeling…tired? All the joy, happiness, and love in the world is amazing after welcoming your newest one, but it can be taxing on your body, mind, and home. Why go it alone? There is help after baby. You don’t have to rely on just yourselves or your family or your friends. While their help is great, they also just want to cuddle baby (and who could blame them)? Your baby or babies are the best! We know you think so, and we do too. You, the parent, are pretty awesome and you deserve someone there who doesn’t give a hoot about how you want to do things! Because the postpartum period is physically demanding, we think it’s important to take care of yourself. We just want to make sure you are eating scrumptious food, resting as much as you need, getting the information you want about raising this tiny human, and spending time taking care of yourself and bonding as a family. It’s like having a built-in BFF!
Postpartum support includes, but is not limited to the following:
- Light meal prep
- Meal planning
- Fetching your favorite flavored water or soda
- Accompanying you while you get some sunshine and take a walk with your little one
- Listening to your story and your goals without judgement
- Helping your keep your sanity…and your house
- Organizing the nursery or the bedside baby nest
- Feeding assistance, breast and bottle
- Basic newborn education
- Sibling wrangling
- Ordering that awesome 4Moms bathtub
- Recognizing symptoms of postpartum mood disorders and referrals
- Being your biggest cheerleader
