Breastfeeding and Bonding, the 4th Trimester

4th Trimester:

The childbearing year really is a year, not just 9 months.  In our culture, the last 3 months, after the birth, are forgotten. Each trimester is 1 season, so technically you have 4 Trimesters, which brings you back full circle to the day your last moon cycle before the beginning of motherhood.

Catharine offers breastfeeding support in all settings – home, office, support groups.  She has had extensive experience from her midwifery practice with over 25 years of helping moms and babies get the healthiest start possible, and is Certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultants. While breastfeeding is a natural process, there are sometimes difficulties getting established in the first days of life for the newborn. The breastfeeding education she offers prenatally prepares moms for this incredible experience, and facilitates a smooth transition into parenthood.
