Service introduction

I offer postpartum support care, this includes providing families with non medical advice and support on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from childbirth, infant soothing, and coping skills for new parents. I also help with light housework, fix a meal and help incorporate an older child into this new experience.

We met with Makayla while I was still pregnant with our twins. We knew when we first met her, that she would be the perfect match for our family! She visited our babies in the NICU before they came home to get accustomed to them. Makayla was everything! Supporting me during my breastfeeding, finding resources for our twins, ensuring me to rest while she is there. Her calm demeanor really helped the twins to rest easy, which made it easier for my husband and I to rest. Her swaddling ability is superb! I cannot recommend her enough! She is officially a part of my family and we trust her and miss her already!
