InThisTogether was founded on the idea that women deserve to walk into motherhood educated, supported and confident.
Our current maternal health norms leave much to be desired. The chasm between birth and follow up care is where we need a bridge. I'm thrilled to partner with Dr Missy Gallow to provide just that. Comprehensive care for new mothers. Your well mama visits.
I am dedicated to educating women about the changes that occur during pregnancy and common postpartum patterns that have a lasting effect on a woman's body. And in doing so, setting them up for an optimal birth experience, the ability to stay fit and active, and avoid chronic pain throughout their life.
I am dedicated to providing personalized, individual care to every birthing mother and family that needs support. My belief is that you are the best parent for your baby. Helping you get clear about how to do that in a way that creates peace inside the walls of your home is what I do.
OUR WHY IS YOU
Our heart for helping new mothers, in each of our respective fields, and our desire to see this level of support become the norm means we have teamed up to set the bar higher. We’re so excited to be doing something new! New and so needed.
TheMotherhoodProject is a collaborative effort. You and two professionals covering all the new motherhood essentials.
A set plan for hands on, in-home consults for postpartum and newborn care with April that includes all things newborn, breastfeeding and life at home, partnered with scheduled in person and virtual visits with Dr. Gallow to facilitate your whole physical recovery starting in late pregnancy through recovery from birth.
Women deserve knowledgeable support when it comes to mothering their newborns AND their own physical recovery. That's what we do.
It goes a little something like this
Your well mama visits.
TheMotherhoodProject is 11 comprehensive visits with your team.
@34 weeks - Baby Prep & Plan - Baby Prep is the all encompassing "what to expect" class in anticipation of your new baby. We cover it all and it serves as your springboard for planning your life postpartum. You will finish educated, and with a clear plan in hand for how you will handle life with baby.
@35 weeks+ Dr Missy Gallow will provide (2) in person prenatal labor and delivery prep sessions. Topics covered include what positions are best for your body in each stage of labor, both medicated and unmedicated. Dr Missy will assess your pelvis, uterine mobility, ligaments and soft tissue restrictions that may make labor and delivery more difficult.
