You have birthed your baby.
You have welcomed your love and now you have entered what is affectionately called the fourth trimester.
This is a time of learning, a time of bonding, and a time of great change.
You will have many joys, but you may also encounter some challenges. These challenges can be supported by the gentle and knowledgeable application of time tested techniques.
Birthwyse Inc’s postpartum care supports you in finding spaces within your parenting to nourish your body, breath, mind, and partnership. Research shows that babies thrive when they have a deep bond with their mother/father and are raised in a harmonious relationship between mother and father/co-parent.
Birthwyse Inc. recognizes that in order for mom to deeply bond with baby she needs to feel nourished, supported, and honoured. And for partners to make a harmonious transition from being a couple to being parents, they need tools, communication, and time for their relationship.
Warm the body, feed the soul, and you nourish the heart of a new family.
Birthwyse Inc offer’s a range of options to support this transitional time in a families life. These options can make a great gift for any expecting or newly birthed family - your own or anothers.
