Mother your new baby with strength, well being and calm

A Postpartum Plan takes care of YOUR needs, so you can

Many of us don’t plan for our postpartum like we do our births.

Just like a birth plan that helps quell the jitters and prepare you for an enjoyable healthy experience, expectant mothers that create a postpartum plan to take care of their own needs, with the support of their partners and families, are more prepared to mother their new baby with strength, well being and calm.

When I think about a healthy postpartum, I think of how geese offer support to each other.  Geese take turns offering leadership. When the lead goose gets tired, he rotates back in the wing, and another goose takes the lead. After my own experience with an unexpected postpartum journey and my work with new mothers in my therapy practice,  I created a plan called RESTORE a postpartum wellness plan that walks mothers through the various aspects of their own postpartum care and needs.

Women spend a lot of time preparing for the birth of their baby and planning the baby's nursery, but this type of preparation is specifically for YOU.  One of the most successful ways to RESTORE your emotional and physical wellness after the birth of the baby is to have supportive structures in place prior to the birth of the baby.  The best way to RESTORE your emotional wellness AFTER the baby comes is to plan your support structure BEFORE the baby comes.

Use this guide as a tool to prepare BEFORE baby comes so you don’t find yourself scrambling for help AFTER the baby comes.  Let it be something you can pick and choose from to customize to your own unique circumstances.
