Needing some space just for you to talk about your birth how it is feeling to be a new mom? Each birth is unique and each mom experiences the postpartum period in her own way. Having a caring, knowledgeable person to talk to during this time can make all the difference. I invite you to schedule a personal video chat session with me and together we’ll create a nurturing space to talk about all that’s going on for you.
Individual sessions are also offered to partners or family members who would like a safe place to share about the birth experience or talk about how things are going now that baby has arrived.
These individual sessions are available to anyone who needs support during the postpartum period. You can book as many sessions as you like, and you can attend by yourself, with a partner, or with your family. Group sessions are also available.
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.
