Postpartum isn’t always a joyful time.

Postpartum isn’t always a joyful time. In fact, as many as 1 in 5 women will experience significant depression or anxiety in the first year after their baby is born. Peer support can be very helpful to supplement other medical treatment and therapy for people struggling with mood in the postpartum period.
The Crown Point Midwives run a postpartum peer support group, Tuesdays from 10:15-12:00 at the Kenilworth Library.

This group is open to anyone in the first year postpartum, not just Midwifery clients. If you think this group might be right for you please call to speak with one of our facilitators and to confirm our next meeting date (if we know you’re coming we can contact you on case of a cancellation due to weather etc.)

Is your car seat safe?

Is your car seat safe?
See what The City of Hamilton suggests below.
👀 👇 👇 👇
Many parents with newborns rely on the convenience of an infant car seat. They can remove a sleeping baby from the car and click the carrier right into a stroller. But that convenience can also cause problems because it might lead parents and caregivers to put a baby’s safety at risk, even if they don't realize it.
The City of Hamilton suggests you check these things before you use a car seat.
- Look for the CMVSS label
- Check the expiry date
- Review the car seat’s height and weight limits
- Check for recalls
- Check the fit of the seat and if it can be installed properly in your vehicle
- Check to see if the seat has been in a collision
- Read the seat and vehicle manuals
- Check for any damage or missing parts

Who's going to be there for you during your postpartum period?

Who's going to be there for you during your postpartum period? The postpartum period is six weeks after childbirth. This is a very important time for both you and your newborn baby as you adjust to each other and your expanded family.
That is where Access Midwives comes in. After your birth, whether in the hospital or at home, we will monitor the condition of both you and your baby for the first few hours. We will help you breastfeed, have a bath or shower and provide information and guidance for your care during the early days after birth. Having a midwife has plenty of benefits, and you should consider applying for one today.

We want to thank Kyle and Christine for sharing their Baby Story with Access Midwives.

We want to thank Kyle and Christine for sharing their Baby Story with Access Midwives. This is what they said "It was so exciting to be pregnant, but also so scary! I struggle with anxiety, and having the midwives made things go so much smoother. I was able to ask questions when I wasn't sure about different changes - and they were always a phone call away! When I went into labour, my midwives came to our house and assessed me there before going off to the hospital. I was already 8 cm and I was so scared that I wouldn't be able to have an epidural, but they made sure I got it :) they we're so attentive while we waited for Leo to come almost 14 hours later! It was an amazing experience, and I would definitely go through it again with my wonderful Team Purple! Thank you Simone, Amanda (student), Erin, and Tamara."
