Improved Postpartum Care
We (and ACOG) believe that women need more than a 10 minute check of their stitches and a contraception prescription at their postpartum visit. We offer all postpartum patients two complete visits in the postpartum period, in addition to our other postpartum support services. The first visit is a 2 hour session, 2-3 weeks after delivery, which includes a group counselling session with our doctor to better inform you about routine healing and possible challenges in the first year after you have your baby, postpartum depression screening, and individual check-ins with our staff and doctor as needed. Your second visit, around 8 weeks, is a complete physical exam and appointment addressing concerns and contraception.
Each Wednesday, our office opens our second floor to all our postpartum patients for breastfeeding and new mom peer support
We have in-house counselling services through Meghan Gay, LCSW for patients suffering with antepartum or postpartum depression or anxiety or challenges with family transitioning. Services are billed to insurance through our office.
We provide all our patients complementary lactation support after delivery with our own, in-house, IBCLC
Every Wednesday morning, prior to our support groups, new mothers can come by themselves or with their baby and enjoy the many benefits of yoga
