Home care is important during this time in a family's life.
Decreasing illness exposure during this time is important, particularly because a newborn baby's immune system is unique and susceptible to infection. Additionally, the mother is healing from delivering a baby, which is one of the most intense physical experiences she will have in her lifetime. Going out in the cold, lifting infant carseats, walking up stairs and sitting in medical office waiting rooms are not ideal circumstances for either mother or baby. In fact, many cultures and traditions insist that mother and baby stay in their homes for the first several weeks of life.
Integration of care for mom & baby
During the fourth trimester, the postpartum woman and her baby are physiologically connected. The wellness of the mother directly affects the wellness of the baby, and vice versa. As family medicine providers trained in both pediatrics and women's health, we are able to closely monitor the overall family's health and are able to address many issues in a more comprehensive and holistic way.
The fourth trimester is one of the most intense physical and emotional moments in a woman's life. At each visit we check in on the mother by addressing issues around breastfeeding, general wellness and postpartum mood.
Natural holistic approach
We are a comprehensive medical practice with access to prescribe medications, make referrals, and order testing as needed. Whenever possible, we take a natural and holistic approach to caring for the mother and newborn.
