This is a series of four weekly videochat sessions which run from 11:15am-12:15am.
This postpartum group is designed to support you and your family as you adjust to life with a new baby. Whether it’s your first or you’ve had a new baby before, we all need support and community during this transformational time. Join us for our four-week online group series from the coziness of your own home as we share the joys and the struggles in a supportive and nurturing environment.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
When you give birth at TBI, you are eligible for our free “Postpartum Check-in for TBI Families”; two weekly group videochat sessions.
About Amy Schief MSW, RM
I began working at The Birthing Inn as a birth assistant in 1999 when I was in midwifery school and later was blessed to call TBI my home base while running my own busy practice. During my 15 years at The Birthing Inn I had the pleasure of working with amazing families alongside wonderful midwives, doulas, birth assistants and childbirth educators.
In 2012 I moved to Switzerland and after a lengthy process (and the addition of a whole new language!) my midwifery license was recognized and I started again working with growing families at a birth center here in central Switzerland.
One of the most striking differences I noticed right away was the special emphasis placed on the postpartum period. Here in Switzerland, women are invited to stay at the birth center (as well as the hospital) for at least five days following the birth often with their partners! The care and attention they receive is amazing and helps to set a positive and supportive tone in the life of a new family. Once the family returns home, a midwife visits the family each day for up to a week, and in some cases longer. This is all part of the benefits she receives through her insurance and is standard of care!
Needless to say, my perspective and knowledge of the postpartum period has changed a great deal and I am thrilled to be offering postpartum support to moms via TBI’s online postpartum support groups. I am also happy to be offering one-on-one postpartum support sessions for moms (and partners) who would like a bit of extra time to talk about all the joys and challenges of the postpartum time.
