Immediately following the birth of your baby, I provide postpartum care and breastfeeding help.
I am happy to take photos or videos during the labor process and birth of your baby, if you desire.
Following the birth of your baby, I provide two postpartum home visits and a complimentary meal prepared by Sugar and Spice Bakery.
