marcia's Postpartum Package

- Rebecca C.

"Marcia’s help during our son’s first ten weeks and my postpartum recovery were invaluable. My family cannot imagine what trouble we would have gotten into without Marcia’s help and guidance. Our son came a month early. We were so unprepared to take care of a newborn. He was tiny, and his digestive system was immature, causing acid reflux and gas pain. Marcia spent numerous nights rocking him and cuddling him. I’m sure he felt the love. He also had a lot of trouble nursing, so Marcia tried many creative ways to feed him, ensuring that those methods wouldn’t confuse him with nursing again. She not only took care of our baby but also respected our decisions and preferences.

I was at the emergency unexpectedly on night three after returning home with my son. Marcia immediately went above and beyond to help our family. She introduced the bottle to my son and assisted my husband when he was under high stress. When I was recovering from a c-section, she didn’t mind doing the hard work, even if it meant kneeling in an awkward position by my bedside to help my son latch, encourage my milk flow through massages, or feeding me water.

Her advice will forever stay with me. My son is now an excellent sleeper because of the foundation Marcia laid. Marcia genuinely loves children and her job and is so pleasant to be around. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to care for and love my baby. My son will grow up knowing how lucky he is to have had her care. 

Thank you for everything, Marcia! Oliver will grow up knowing how lucky he is to have had her care. Thank you for everything Marcia!"
