Postpartum Care Experts and Providers

We have complied a space for you to find all of the postpartum care experts and providers that you may need NOW so when you need them LATER it is not as hard to find the right person. While our list may be a little longer than you had in mind (11 different providers), we encourage you to fill out as many as possible just in case. 


Choosing Postpartum Experts

How you choose your providers is whatever works best for you. We have some great recommendations and will happily walk through the list with you giving our recommendations, but we also what you to think about will this person be someone that I can ask for help from? Many experts in our area will meet with you for a complimentary consultation or charge a small fee so that you can learn more about them as a provider, as well as a person. We also encourage you to look for those who are geographically convenient for you as well as those who accept your insurance. 


Family Members During Your Postpartum Period

Some family members are great, and some are less than great. We all have those family members we love dearly as people, but know they aren’t going to be the biggest help. 

That is completely fine and normal. 

On the Postpartum Care Toolkit we have a space for your the most helpful friends or family members so you don’t have to set boundaries and know you can call them for help anytime. Just be honest with who write, no one else has to see this document.
