Postpartum Support And Services
TLC midwife believe in encouraging and supporting mothers throughout pregnancy, birth and beyond including the 4th Trimester, known as the postpartum period.
Why Postpartum Care is Important:
The time following the birth of your baby, known as the postpartum period, is an important time because the way in which a new baby transitions into a family has a lasting impact on both the physical and emotional health of mom, dad and siblings. TLC midwife offer tremendous postpartum support and additional programs to support mothers during this special time.
Placenta encapsulation is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been steamed, dehydrated, ground, and placed into pills. Traditionally, this is taken by the mother and is believed to impart numerous health benefits. It is frequently taken shortly after giving birth, during a woman’s menstrual period, or during menopause with the belief that it helps counter some of the symptoms of menopause. For the further questions about the service call or email.
