Postpartum Care San Antonio, TX

Ensuring Mother and Baby are Thriving

Postpartum Services

“Heather was my midwife for the birth of my second child, and helped me achieve the most beautiful experience I could have hoped for. She was a wonderful guide through my pregnancy, always taking the time to walk through all my choices and options, and was especially helpful helping me navigate pregnancy during the earliest days of Covid.

The best part of home birth though is the days after! Heather was at my bedside for 12, 24, 36 hours after delivery for check ins, and beyond. She was so capable and able to help me correct my breast feeding, which led to a much more positive BF experience than with my first born.

I’m so grateful I got to work with Heather and trusted her to deliver my Son.” – Jessica Jackson Robertson

Postpartum & Newborn Support

Once your little one arrives, our midwives continue to provide ongoing care and assistance during the postpartum period. This includes guidance on newborn care, monitoring vital signs, offering breastfeeding support, and delivering comprehensive well-baby services. Throughout the postpartum phase, our team remains vigilant about the well-being of both the mother and the newborn, addressing various aspects such as standard midwifery care, lactation support, screening for postpartum depression, and other areas of support.

We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a comforting and supportive postpartum experience for you.

As part of our commitment to your overall well-being, we are always ready to guide you towards additional resources as needed. With Birth Bliss Midwifery by your side in your home birth journey, you can be confident that your postnatal period will be a positive and uplifting experience!
