I'm here to provide you with tools. I'm here to give you those positive reflections of the little accomplishments, even when there are experiences or feelings that seem grueling. I'm here because our healthcare system doesn't provide you with a continuity of care throughout the postpartum passage. I'm here to provide you with community, bonding and support that will leave you feeling empowered and independent.
