Comments from participating families on the tova health model of care
"Tova health is a life saver to moms and babies."
"This concept of in-home care during the new, wonderful, yet tiring and often overwhelming time in a mother and newborn’s lives is such a gift."
"There is a void in the U.S. for mothers postpartum. Providing moms the opportunity to stay home after delivering a baby is such an immense help. If I had had this care after a c-section with my first baby, and especially the care from Dr Zasloff - who offers such a warm heart, relatable and caring personality - my experience would have been vastly different."
"I lost a lot of blood after my delivery which took a lot of recovering. I was pretty much immobile the first few weeks postpartum, confined to bed and barely able to make it to the bathroom. There was absolutely no way I would have been able to get myself up to travel all the way the hospital for the initial pediatrician check ups.Having the doctor come to our home was so wonderful. "
"Most other countries in the world have such a support system; why don’t we? Moms can better care for their babies when they are cared for too."
"I applaud what tova health is doing and hope many more families benefit from this wonderful service."
“This return to family home postnatal care is one of the easiest and most enjoyable medical experiences I’ve ever had."
"The expertise and casual nature of the doctor visits kept us so relaxed. We loved the ritual of having our doctor over.”
“This helps preserve your (and your baby’s) mental and physical health, especially during the first few weeks postpartum. After you have a baby you both should be at home resting and recuperating. Your body needs to heal and should not be subjected to the physical stress it takes to get out and about. Keep in mind your pediatric visits will be frequent, especially during the first few weeks, which can really take its toll. This is the beauty of tova health because the comes to you! You and your baby are seen in the comfortable and healthy environment of your own home- which you will find after having a new baby, is a really wonderful thing."
“It is all too common today for medical practitioners to provide care in a detached and one size fits all manner, so tova health’s personalized approach to caring for newborns and new parents is a welcome exception."
"Having the doctor visit us in our home saved us multiple trips to the doctor’s office after one of the most physically and mentally draining experiences of our lives, and was definitely a godsend."
"We were delighted to have such a personalized and pleasurable caregiving experience for our growing family."
“Home care and the quality of tova health is what all new mothers should expect and receive from their medical provider."
"After a stressful labor and delivery- during which the stress was compounded by a revolving door of doctors and nurses- having a direct line of communication with our physician provided a much needed stabilization as we transitioned into parenthood."
Comments from participating families about Dr Zasloff
"Dr Zasloff brings warmth, friendship, compassion, and respect into your home."
"Dr Zasloff was accessible whenever necessary, repeatedly offered to liaise with hospital doctors and staff directly on our behalf, and provided the support, warmth, and individualized care that was so lacking during our labor and delivery."
"Dr Zasloff is great about looking out for your physical and mental health as a mom. She listens and respects you and your family. Dr Zasloff really takes the time to get to know you and your family so that she can support you in the best way possible.”
“I whole heartedly recommend Dr Zasloff. Dr Zasloff is very loving and tried to use natural approaches. When we were concerned about anything, she was very responsive and would not hesitate to look into things and recommend consults if needed. She is trained as a western physician and very good at that but really wants to do things with minimal intervention. It's hard to find a physician like that.”
"Dr Zasloff offers excellent medical care. She communicated with the doctor at the hospital after our baby was born and helped carry over the hospital’s plan of care once we arrived home. She monitors our baby’s growth through regular measurements of weight, length, and head circumference. She will give you a scale to borrow and check in regularly to ensure your baby is gaining weight adequately, which can offer great peace of mind for new parents. In addition to her medical knowledge, she has knowledge on breastfeeding support. I found this to be incredibly helpful since breastfeeding takes time to learn and often new moms don’t feel they have mastered it before leaving the hospital."
"Dr Zasloff is 100% committed to her families and available for all questions and concerns."
"Dr Zasloff showed up with a smile, offered smart & sound medical advice that also valued compassion for the mother-baby unit.”
"You will genuinely feel cared for and respected as an individual family with Dr Zasloff. Her presence is extremely calming and encouraging, at a time when you need it most."
