  • Promote rest, recovery, and bonding with your baby in the weeks after birth

  • Help you understand what is normal and identify possible areas of concern

  • Brainstorm with you to help come up with creative solutions to challenges you may face

  • ... and so much more!

 
Having a baby has been the most earth shattering, humbling, and overwhelming experience in our lives. Megan and Marlee’s presence throughout was always comforting, calming, and reassuring. To us, they were invaluable.
