Congratulations on taking the first step to Maternal Wellness!
We are committed to helping you during this remarkable time and we'll be with you every step of the way.
Today we will:
- Walk you through what to expect with the MaternalWell program
- Introduce you to all of our available services
- Highlight additional resources you may need
Our goal is to provide you with everything you might need to help promote mental, physical, and emotional wellness. Our mission is to complement the medical care you receive from your Ob/Gyn with important but often overlooked clinical specialties.
You will have access to expert care across a wide range of specialties. Rest assured, all our providers specialize not only in women's health, but specifically in prenatal and postpartum care. Our providers include mental health specialists, lactation consultants, baby sleep trainers, couples counselors, physical therapists, nutritionists, and lifestyle coaches.
Each one has been vetted not only on a professional level, but also a personal level, to ensure they’re both friendly and passionate about what they do. We encourage you to reach out for a chat to discover this for yourself
All of us at MaternalWell have been through the ups and downs that come with a new child. We’ve been in your shoes and felt the pendulum swings between joy and frustration. We know how trying and rewarding raising a baby can be. And we’re here to fill in the gaps nobody tells you about (urinary incontinence!?!) There are no shortage of surprises and crossroads that come with motherhood. That’s why we exist.
Everyone you know wants to talk about the baby. We want to talk about you!
It’s not unusual for a new baby to eclipse everyone else in the family. So while your family and friends are fussing over the child, we’re here to fuss over you. New moms need care and attention too!
And since every mother and family is different, we customize our services to suit your needs, and what’s important to you. Further, we’re also available for individual and personalized support to make sure you feel steady and strong as a new mom.
Everyone has an opinion on motherhood.
The only thing that piles up faster than dirty onesies is unsolicited advice. From everyone, everywhere. Family, friends. The strangers stopping you at the grocery store. Literally, everyone that’s ever even held a child seems to be offering advice.
We're going to take a different approach.
We’re not here to preach or tell you what you might be feeling at any given moment. Instead, we’re here to be a resource when you have questions, find yourself overwhelmed, or simply need some guidance. As different situations arise, you can come to MaternalWell to find the answers you need. Or at least a path to help you find the answer you’re looking for. Because ultimately, this is your journey. We’re not here to take the wheel. Rather, we’re here to help you navigate.
We've seen firsthand that being prepared is the key. The more blindsided you are by the unexpected, the harder it is. That’s why we strive to provide all the tools and resources you may need, come what may. Because no matter where you are in your journey, it's never too late to seek guidance.
When it comes to raising a child, there are far more than 50 shades of gray area.
What’s considered mild enough to ignore? What’s considered severe enough to seek care? Is my body supposed to do THAT? Whatever the issue is, it’s seldom black or white. And we believe everyone should get the care and support they need regardless of what’s perceived to be “big” or “small.”
So instead of scouring message boards like we did, or asking Google, talk to us -- we're here to listen. No judgement. No guilt. No preaching. That's our commitment to you.
Premium members, get to know your Care Coordinator!
Think of her as your MaternalWell concierge. She'll be your point of contact and check in with you periodically to see how you're doing and if there's anything we can help with. If you have any questions or need advice on action plans, she can help connect the dots.
...and by the way, she's a real person. How refreshing is that?:)
Text Support (Premium Membership)
You don't have to waste your time searching the Internet for answers. Just text us and we'll get back to you with an answer from our experts.
While we strive to help as much as we can in a timely manner, if you need immediate assistance, please contact your physician or 911 if it is an emergency.
Also, if your needs are more in line with individualized or personal care we would suggest scheduling an appointment to get all of your questions answered in depth by one of our specialists in maternal care. The best part -- subscribers to our premium membership get a 30% discount on individual virtual sessions, which would be about 3-4 times less than a normal office visit.
You are not alone!
When we went through the journey -- we felt like we were the anomaly. The reality versus the expectations was difficult and surprising. The more we researched, talked to clinicians, and moms, we realized that the things we went through are more common than we initially thought. BUT NOBODY TALKS ABOUT IT. So we do. All the time.
So whether you are an active contributor, a quiet listener, or just want to vent - we really think joining our peer group sessions would be worth your time. We limit these to small, intimate groups in order to offer invaluable support and community. Hear and learn what others are going through, share your experiences, or just have somebody new to talk to that's not spitting up on you every couple of hours.
Again, no judgement, no guilt, no preaching.
We'll dive into our first topic area tomorrow.
And try to mix it up to keep everybody interested and engaged.
Keep it light, informative, and maybe even entertaining.
Let us know what you think - questions, concerns, or suggestions...we're all ears.
We look forward to helping you reach your goals!
