The Reason Why

MOSS Postpartum House Calgary (3).jpg

We believe in holistic care.

We believe that it takes a village to raise you up after the transformation to parenthood.

We want to be that village.

Each of our Practitioners is uniquely trained and experienced in supporting postpartum families. Whether your struggle is debilitating or minor, we believe that you should be entitled to quality care. In addition to individual appointments, both our Practitioners and our MOSS Family provide classes, training and community building events which are meant to help you build relationships, knowledge and confidence. We are not meant to be on this journey alone. We hope you join ours.

After the birth of my first baby I was searching on the Internet for a support “place” for women postpartum. What I found were lists on what to do after baby is born: fill out baby book, schedule doctor’s appointment, report birth to insurance and send in paper work. 

This seemed absurd to me. How are sleep deprived parents, who are attempting to master feeding, sleeping and care of this new being supposed to thrive when all they are given are to-do lists? When did all the focus become about the birth and not nurturing the parents after the delivery? 

I truly do believe the most important time in all the trimesters is the 4th Trimester. Over the last 5 years I have not only watched the birth of over 50 babies but the birth of parents being born. 

The need to nurture the parent is not something society in general thinks of in the same capacity as birth and there lies the disconnect. We are here to change that.
