-Breastfeeding Support/Advice. Breastfeeding can be so scary at first, but with the right support it can become so easy and amazing in every way for you and baby. The benefits of breastfeeding for mother and baby last for years and years along with the amazing bond it forms from the very beginning. I am here to help ensure there is a proper latch, Mom is getting enough nourishment for her and baby to breastfeed successfully along with any questions that I can answer about breastfeeding. I cannot diagnose any medical issues that may occur with breastfeeding but I do have an amazing Lactation Consultant that I can refer you to if needed.
-Confinement Services(additional fee). Traditional Chinese Physicians believe that giving birth depletes you of energy and blood, which in turn, weakens your body. It is vital to replenish your health with good nutrition during the first month, confinement period(zhor yuet or "lying-in"). The special confinement dishes and soups recommended are meant to enhance your immune system and help you regain your physical strength. This can help with healing, energy and breastmilk production. Healthy meals will be prepared in your home or mine and will be delivered weekly in labeled glass containers. Additional services included in this package are Acupuncture treatments done by a certified Chinese Herbalist and Acupuncturist and newborn support while I prepare the meals in your home.
