We know the early days of parenting are overwhelming, intense, and impossible to do on our own.
Everyone is a beginner at breast/chest feeding. Even if you read all the books and took a class, you can only really learn it once your baby is here.
Breast/chestfeeding is easiest as a social event.
Babies and postpartum bodies change every day.
Lactation support can be hard to access and schedule.
Once you're home, how are you going to figure out all the things?
Did you know there is an easier way?
We bring together new families to create habits that support connection, ease, and optimal brain development in babies and their parents.
Join us to find a community of peers, folks doing what you're doing.
Together we will learn how to be in sync with our families and enjoy ease.
Meet your bodyfeeding goals in this community of support. No judgement. Wherever you find yourself in your parenting journey, you are welcome.

I plan to breastfeed my baby. Does the Postpartum Lounge replace my need for a lactation consultant?
Breastfeeding will be easy for some and may be challenging for others depending on a number of factors.
Most issues that come up are minor and do not need a lactation consultant. The postpartum lounge is designed to be just what you need. As challenges come up, you can post questions in the lounge and your hosts will answer them within 24 hours. Other parents bring a lot of wisdom to the conversation. You will learn a lot by reading through past conversations.
If you have a more complicated breastfeeding situation, you may need a one on one lactation consult and you can reach out to set up a one on one meeting at a discounted rate for lounge members.
Our premium membership includes an entire month of one on one lactation consultant support. This is a perfect option for complicated cases or for anyone who just wants to be able to access us freely at any time.
I already have a doctor/midwife. Why would I need The Postpartum Lounge?
Many important physical and emotional changes happen in the first 6 weeks of your baby’s life.
Most health care providers only offer minimal care for postpartum patients. You will have a brief visit in the hospital and a 6-week postpartum visit.
Your baby will be see your pediatrician in the first weeks of life, but your pediatrician is not a specialist to care for YOUR needs around postpartum physical recovery, breastfeeding, and emotional status.
The Postpartum Care Company and the Postpartum Lounge is here to fill that gap in care. If you need increased care with the midwives from the Postpartum Care Company, we will work in collaboration with your other health care providers.
Does the Postpartum Care Company and The Postpartum Lounge replace my doctor?
The Postpartum Care Company does not replace your doctor. Your OB doctor will want to see you for a brief visit at 4 or 6 weeks. This visit is generally to ensure your physical healing is complete and to prescribe birth control. Before the OB doctor postpartum visit, you would only be seen if you had a problem or a complication. If your Postpartum Care Company midwife/NP identifies a potential problem in your case, we will communicate with your doctor and will recommend you return to your doctor for a full evaluation.
Can I change my subscription to the Postpartum Care Company and The Postpartum Lounge?

If I’m not breastfeeding why do I need Postpartum Care?
The Postpartum Lounge is for ALL new parents. We do not judge. Parents choose what makes sense for themselves and their families and we are here to support you finding your way into your intuitive knowing about what is right for you and your baby. If you are not breast/chest feeding for any reason, you can expect respectful evidence-based guidelines about how to care for yourself and your baby to achieve optimal health and connection to your baby. Conversations in the lounge cover all parenting topics, including feeding.
I don’t identify as a mother, is this a place that will be safe for me?
At The Postpartum Care Company, we recognize that not all birthing people are mothers and not all mothers are birthing people. We support all new parents regardless of your path to this point to get the support you need. Wherever you are on your parenting journey, there is a place for you here.
