cesarean section

Whats Included:

 

  • 24/7 Support. Gain confidence & peace of mind throughout your pregnancy and up to 6 weeks postpartum. Call Tamara anytime day or night for a listening ear and guidance.

  • 2 private prenatal visits to review your expectations, answer questions or just sit and listen for a while to all that is going on - all while helping to prepare your family for the birth and life after bringing home baby!  Tamara will meet you at home or wherever is most convenient for you.  Tamara has never turned down a meeting request for Starbucks and will make any excuse to get her hands on a Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino.

  • Tamara will assist you in creating a customized birth plan that fits your family's needs.  Regardless of you how are birthing; you have choices.  Tamara is here to make sure you are aware of your options.

  • 1 FREE Childbirth Class: Tamara knows the importance of being prepared for the big day.   Included in your package is registration at any one of the childbirth classes offered at no additional charge.  While the class will discuss vaginal delivery, part of the class is devoted to talking about cesereans as well as baby care and postpartum.

  • Next Day Follow Up: Tamara knows that the first 24 hours after birth can have a lot going on.  Tamara will follow up with you the next day to see how both Mama and baby are doing, and to see if you need anything.

  • Cesarean support on the big day. Tamara will arrive when you are ready for her prior to the cesarean section, be with you in the operating room if you don't have other support or be with your family in the waiting room and be with you after the surgery.  A big part of the day is providing emotional support, and answering questions about what is going on or how things will be going for both you and any waiting family. Tamara will stay until after you are in your recovery room which is generally 1-2 hours post birth even helping to bring your stuff from one room to another as you transition from a birth suite to a postpartum room.
postpartum meal
  • 1 postpartum visit with you at your home to see how everyone is doing post birth.  This visit usually lasts an hour or longer based on what your needs are.  Tamara is here to help you with whatever you might need - hold the baby, let you take a brief nap or shower, help switch a load in the laundry or just sit and talk. Since Tamara never goes anywhere empty handed, she comes with a homecooked meal to give you the night off from cooking or having to order another meal from the drive thru.

  • Tamara understands how difficult the first few weeks and months of having a newborn can be.  You and your family are learning what is going to be the "new normal" for a while. That is what Tamara will call/text you each week for the first 8 weeks postpartum to check on you.  You can call/text her anytime as well, but she will follow up with you if she hasn't heard from you to make sure mama is being taken care of too!
