Postpartum Consults

During the postpartum time, we know that it takes a village! You don’t have to go it alone, and we have support available for you. Ask us about how to find the resources that you need! Postpartum Consultations: Our Client Resource Coordinator is available for Postpartum Consultations to talk through your experience, and to provide support, resources, and encouragement.

Postpartum FertilityCare Services: Your body has just gone through the amazing process of gestation and birth. As you think about your Family Planning options in the postpartum time, there are many methods of natural family planning that can work for you, without interrupting your bodies natural processes and keeping the dignity of your marriage. Contact Us to set up a Fertility Care Consult to pick the system that will work the best for you!

Postpartum Doula Services: After having a baby, you NEED support more than ever! Your first 6 weeks after giving birth should be spent resting and focusing on your new baby! This can also be an emotionally stressful time with the current demands placed on moms in our society and the shift in hormones in the body after giving birth! While this support is common in other parts of the world, here in the USA we have lost the custom of this much needed care! You worked hard being pregnant and birthing your baby. Now is your time to bond with your baby and establish good feeding routines. Sleep will be an adjustment for you with a waking newborn at night. You shouldn’t have to worry about taking care of anything else! Guiding Star Postpartum Doulas are trained in infant CPR, breastfeeding and bottle feeding skills, baby wearing, general infant care, calming techniques, healthy food planning & cooking, organizing baby’s room, planning schedules & guest lists, light house cleaning, preparing relaxing baths and teas, and more!

Postpartum Physical Therapy Services: Tanya Rowenhorst of Refining Wellness provides postpartum physical therapy support. One visit during the 1st or 2nd week postpartum will be customized to fit your needs. This may include treatment for pain or other issues that arose during labor/delivery, a few basic exercises for pelvic core muscle activation, scar tissue management, direction in beginning physical activity, evaluation/treatment of abdominal muscle separation (rectus diastasis) if able, and posture/positioning with breastfeeding. After six weeks postpartum, you should be examined for abdominal muscle separation, as well as evaluation and treatment of pelvic floor muscle weakness that may cause pelvic organ prolapse or urinary incontinence. If you are struggling with any pelvic issues, including (but not limited to) incontinence (including ANY amount of leaking such as when you cough/sneeze/jump, or feel the urge to go all the time), pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, or just want some direction in developing an appropriate exercise program or advancing it, contact Tanya Rowenhorst of Refining Wellness.
