In some respects, the process of childbirth is like a wedding. We make many plans for the big day- we attend classes, draw up a plan, paint the baby’s room. However when the baby arrives we may realize that we planned the wedding well (a one day event), but still need help with the marriage (a much longer journey)!
With this in mind, I offer a number of coaching and counselling services that serve to assist new moms in transitioning into their new role, lifestyle, and identity. Some common problems that I frequently assist women with include:
- Transitioning from work-centric life to home-centric life
- Postpartum blues, depression, and anxiety
- Establishing newborn feeding and sleeping patterns
- Maternal self-care
- Postpartum weight loss. For more about my own story, click here.
For telephone-based counselling, my rate is $49 per hour, with a sliding scale reduction for low-income families. For in-home counselling, my rate is $59 per hour. Please keep in mind that the nature of my work could involve last minute cancellations to attend births.
