Settling into life as a new mother takes some adjusting to and life take on a different rhythm than before. Adjusting to motherhood can be smooth with some bumpy places along the journey. We’d love to help you with any issues you encounter along the way.
Breastfeeding Support and Resources
We have many resources available to help you as you adjust to motherhood. New mothers might like to take a breastfeeding class, and consider joining a breastfeeding support group. Our lactation consultants are also available to help you through breastfeeding issues that require expert help.
Infant Care Resources
When it comes to infant care, there are several free home-visiting programs available to all families, with visits from a social worker and a nurse. Both can help with the expected and the unexpected issues that may arise for you and your family – including emotional issues. We also cover infant care in our Childbirth Education course, which is another great reason to take the class before giving birth!
Postpartum Mood Disorders
While you’re healing and recovering from birth, pay attention to how you feel emotionally. It’s normal to have ups and downs while you’re adjusting to parenting and dealing with lack of sleep. But it’s also not uncommon for depression or anxiety to creep in that needs treatment. You can read more about the issue of postpartum depression and don’t hesitate to reach out to your healthcare provider if you suspect that you might need a little extra help.
