Support After the Birth
Providing additional support after your baby is born is an important part of Apple Tree Maternity. Your care provider will do a home visit soon after your birth. In addition to the regular individual visits, there is breastfeeding group support available with Judtih Fearing, Lactation Consultant. The breastfeeding group is a great place to get information and assistance as well as to socialize with other moms and babies and learn new helpful tips. Finding new ways of supporting women living in outlying communities who are unable to travel to Nelson for care is a special consideration for Apple Tree.
Helping you to bond with your babies after the birth and to establish a successful breastfeeding relationship is a priority for us. Mothers Unfolding is an Art Therapy support group in partnership with Kutenai Art Therpay Institute for mothers needing additional care during the transition to motherhood.
