1 private prenatal visit 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.
1 private prenatal visit with your midwife to meet as a team and discuss this plan for the big day. This typically consits meeting the midwife at your home for a walk through so we all know what the setup will be for the birth. It also allows your midwife and I to meet so we are not meeting for the first time while you are giving birth.
Tamara will assist you in creating a customized birth plan that fits your family's needs. Regardless if you are having a home birth or delivering at a hospital, going natural or having an epidural; 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.
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.
Unlimited in person labor and birth support on the big day; whether your labor is 1 hour or 35 hours; Tamara is there. Tamara will help make sure things are in place before contractions get to instense and consult with you and your midwife to confirm that nothing has changed. Tamara will stay 1-2 hours post birth to help with some cleanup and make sure you have everything that you need.
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!
