Well Baby Check-ins

Many people rely on doctors visits for developmental guidance and concerns for their baby. Unfortunately, many families do not receive the level of support they are looking for and are often told that the baby will "grow out of" concerns that parents have. The first year of a baby's life is such a whirlwind of change, joy, and exhaustion. In these sessions, we come together to deeply support you and your baby. You and your baby get a chance to receive care, holding, and holistic guidance.
