When one amazing journey ends, another begins...

Pregnancy | Birth | Postpartum

A lot of attention is given to pregnancy and birth. As it should be—these are both incredibly important milestones and moments!

But every time a baby is born, a mom is born, too. Just like your baby needs care and attention, you will too. In fact, there’s a name for the period after you give birth: postpartum, also known as the Fourth Trimester. And this period calls for some TLC.

Planning for postpartum ahead of your delivery can help you prepare for the transition to life after baby as best as you can. Just like the other segments of your journey, it’s about taking care of yourself. (And asking for the type of support you need to feel rested as you heal from delivery.)

Registered nurse and doula Ebony Harvey is here to help you prepare for your Fourth Trimester.
