Recovering from delivery is tough. I'm here to help.
As a postpartum educator, my goal is to give you and your family the one on one attention and knowledge you need to make informed decisions about postpartum recovery, infant care, and pediatric sleep issues.
I learned early on that education about what to expect and how to overcome common postpartum struggles just does NOT exist right now. Let's change that together and get you on a path where you THRIVE and love your postpartum.
The time after you give birth can be a truly exciting and joyful adventure. The tiny human you've waited so long to meet is finally here! I want to help you truly experience your postpartum and LOVE the newborn stage, without the typical exhaustion and constant questions.
I always knew that I wanted to have kids. My husband and I tried for a long time to conceive our first, but ultimately we couldn't get pregnant without a little help. That's when I learned that 1 in 8 women struggle with infertility. I was blown away.
After finally conceiving our little one, I downloaded 3 different pregnancy apps to track my growing baby. Once I was certain I understood what was happening to my body, I started to Google everything about kids. I learned all about car seat safety, safe sleep, biologically normal sleep, SIDS, baby led weaning, exclusively pumping...the list goes on.
What I did not prepare for? Recovery from birth. My experience was not a fun one. There was so much that nobody told me about. I started to realize that we prepare moms for pregnancy, labor, and sleepless nights, but NOBODY prepares us for recovering and THRIVING in our postpartum.
And thus, Beyond Birth Basics was formed.Learn More
