It is natural to have many different kinds of feelings following the birth as your body has just undergone a tremendous experience, your family has been remade, and your life is now transformed. Be good to yourself and open to your experience - this is a rare and immense moment in the life of human experience.

Please feel free to address any concerns you may have during this time to Cara via email, or during one of our follow-up visits.


After the birth of your baby, you are welcome to participate in The Birth Survey, an ongoing project to provide women with the opportunity to share their experiences regarding the maternity care they received as well as relaying important feedback to their care providers in the interest of improving the quality of care and availability of information.
