|Making the transition easier.....home support for families and their newborns.
Serving Tucson families since 1995.
|WHAT we do|
|We are here to help you relax and enjoy the transition into new parenthood. Your plan may include:
Home baby care so that Mother and Father can rest
Assistance with breast and bottle feeding - and newborn care
Understanding and support when "blue" or anxious feelings occur
Support for siblings - to help them enjoy their experience of their new baby
Infant massage instruction to help baby sleep, relax, and relieve colic
Other assistance requested by the family such as light housekeeping, shopping, laundry, errands and meal preparation
Specialized support for multiple births or infants born prematurely
A packet of information on infant care and local community resources
|HOW we work|
|We meet with your family to design the initial family support plan, listing the services to be provided, and the frequency of home visits. Plans are flexible to meet changing needs. Services are provided in your home by a postpartum Doula. "Doula" is a Greek word meaning, "women caring for women."|
|WHY we are here|
|Most mothers and newborns return home within 2 days after delivery. Extended family members are not always available to provide support. Parents frequently ask where they can get assistance when baby comes home. Nancy Barber heard these needs expressed by many parents during the years she operated her family-centered store and taught infant massage classes. In response, she founded, We Follow the Stork.|
Gift Certificates Are Available!
Our services can be a great baby shower gift or present from extended family
