Welcoming a new baby is wonderful and challenging.
We were never meant to do it alone.
The first days and weeks of parenthood can be overwhelming and uncertain. The only thing that exceeds your baby's needs is your deep love for them. Education and support lead to confidence. Providing a strong foundation for new families is our goal.
Prenatally, we offer educational classes and consultations. After the birth of your new baby we offer postpartum doula and lactation services. And we now provide continued services into the first year of your baby's life.
We're so excited about your new addition and your new family, and we're here for you because we're InThisTogether.
Baby Prep & Breastfeeding
InThisTogether proudly offers two prenatal classes for expectant parents.The first is our comprehensive Baby Prep class. An all encompassing "what to expect" in anticipation of your new arrival. The second is a comprehensive breastfeeding class taught by our Certified Lactation Counselor.Both are private classes scheduled at the birthing couple's convenience.
A postpartum doula serves the family by providing in home education and physical and emotional support after the birth of a new baby. This is achieved by assisting with newborn care, aiding with physical postpartum recovery, light housework and meal prep, helping with infant feeding and sibling adjustment. It also includes facilitating and implementing new household systems to ease the transition for each family member.
In-home breastfeeding help
InThisTogether offers specific lactation assistance separate from doula services. Visits from our CLC include information and education, observing mother and baby, evaluating feeds and addressing issues and or potential obstacles. Referrals are given when needed and clients have unlimited phone, text and email support.
Postpartum Planning Visit
This prenatal consult, scheduled around 36 weeks, is a two hour session in your home where the doula and partners make a physical plan for the postpartum period. This includes addressing recovery after birth, managing visitors, shifting household roles and expectations, and establishing a plan for existing systems to accommodate changes after baby's arrival.
This is a stand alone, single day service that does not require purchase of an hourly doula package.

InThisTogether offers continued support into the first year of your baby's life. Topics can include but are not limited to safe sleep, feeding, weaning, babywearing, babyproofing, and signing with your baby.
These are custom packages crafted for previous clients that desire additional parent support,
