postpartum and parenting support
“I was thrilled to discover Amy and all the wonderful work she does when I was pregnant with my second child. Amy has helped me grow into a better parent and a stronger woman. I love the feeling of knowing I get to be in her (and other strong and caring parents) company every Tuesday at playgroup. I enjoy the speakers and guests, but I almost enjoy the days more when we talk openly and honestly about postpartum, nursing and feeding, sleep issues, and anything else that’s going on. It truly is one of the best groups I’ve attended since becoming a parent."
i'm really proud of my weekly postpartum/parenting group. we currently meet in-person the first tuesday of the month at the clive library and online every other tuesday morning. it's free, everyone is welcome and it's okay if you're running late or have to leave early. sometimes we have a topic, but usually we talk about whatever is on your mind. there is an opportunity each week to ask questions, share concerns and celebrate accomplishments as well. you have the chance to see old friends from your childbirth class and to make new friends too. so many of you are going through the same joys and challenges and getting you all together leads to great things. please note that you can always check my facebook page or instagram for updates.
i offer ‘transitional baby care’ to help parents gently ease into going back to work after maternity/paternity leave. instead of your baby going to daycare those first few weeks when you’re back at work, i come to your home and help baby, and you, find a smooth, positive routine that works specifically for your family. i help with pumping/feeding baby, sleeping and anything and everything specific to your family. that way your baby will start daycare when you’re more mentally, physically and emotionally ready and the transition won’t be as stressful and overwhelming. there's so much flexibility as far as what this could look like! spots are limited, so please contact me as early as possible to sign up.
