postpartum support

The arrival of a new family member is a beautifully sacred time in one’s life, and it is Nichole’s passion and honor to help guide families through these moments so that they feel supported, nurtured, and empowered. Nichole brings a gentle presence inspired by indigenous Mexican birth and postpartum practices to the families for whom she cares.

Nichole’s Postpartum Services include:

  • Provide a well of evidence-based resources to equip families with any needs that may arise: lactation support, postpartum mood disorders, new parent support groups, to name a few.
  • Assistance with household chores that directly relate to the family and and their baby: laundry, light meal preparation, and dishes for example.
  • Quick errands to retrieve items related to baby and the healing of the birthing person, or to take them to any baby related appointment.
  • Engage fully with the older sibling(s) so parents may have special bonding time with their newborn.
  • Provide care for the newborn while parents reinforce the family bond established with their older child(ren).
  • Care for all children while the new parents, shower, or do any other self-care practice necessary to remember what it’s like to live in their own skin.
  • Lend an open ear and heart so parents may process your new experiences.
