Our midwife is here to support your parenting journey, through family planning counseling, postpartum mood disorders, and with hormonal testing to support lactation.
Our midwife can help with a variety of topics. If you are overwhelmed with motherhood, if you are concerned about getting pregnant too soon, or you are struggling to conceive, if you feel like your medications for your postpartum mental health concerns need some tweaking, or you just want someone to talk to, we are here for you.
Family Planning Services
Whether you hope to facilitate or prevent conception, the midwife offers counseling for your needs. For pre-conception, your history and goals will be reviewed with best practice guidelines provided. For contraception, a history, goals and options will be reviewed. Physical examinations will be provided if indicated. Prescriptions may be provided with appropriate follow-up meetings. Referrals will be offered as needed.
Holistic Mental Health Care
There are few more dramatic changes in life than having a baby. It can be joyful but it can also be the most overwhelming thing you have ever done. If you would like to explore ways to cope better, we offer screening and a complete overview of your perceptions and experiences. This work-up will include your history, support system, resources both internal and external and patterns of diet, exercise and sleep. Together, you and your midwife will explore areas in your life that you can tweak to optimize your journey and feel more contentment than doubt. Your plan may or may not include medication. You will meet at regular intervals to review your process and goals. Referral for higher level care will be offered when needed.
You are not alone and you are enough. Let us help you feel like it.
