Post partum Care for Toronto, Ontario

247 CARE is dedicated to supporting the needs of distressed postpartum mothers and their families during this time of profound transition. Postpartum, refers to the period directly after  childbirth when for most women, especially those experiencing childbirth  for the first time, it marks probably the most significant and life-changing event they have yet lived.

The postpartum period is marked by strong emotions, dramatic physical changes, new and altered relationships, and the assumption of and adjustment to new roles .

The most vulnerable time for a woman to develop onset of mood disorders is during the postpartum period. Approximately 12-16 % of women experience depression during this time.

                                                                                                                                                               OUR POSTPARTUM SERVICES INCLUDE: 

  •   Home baby care to allow REST for MOTHER;
  •   Assistance with BREAST & BOTTLE Feeding & Newborn Care;
  •   EMOTIONAL SUPPORT to Help with new parent Stress and Postpartum blues;
  •   SUPPORT FOR SIBLINGS to Enjoy the positive experience of the New Baby;
  •   INFANT MASSAGE INSTRUCTION to help baby Sleep, Relax, and Relieve Colic;
  •   Other support requested by the family such as: light housekeeping, shopping, laundry, errands & meal preparation.

There are many factors in a difficult postpartum adjustment - sleep deprivation, financial stress, grief over an unexpectedly difficult birth, a traumatic family history, and the high expectations of the mother and the society she lives in, being among some of them. 

The most effective help for postpartum anxiety is non-judgmental support from women who have been through it themselves. We work with new families during the postpartum period, to help them more fully enjoy the early days with their new baby.

We provide non-medical support and help to create a nurturing environment for the mother, her partner, and their new baby. We do not assume primary responsibility for the newborn, but we assist the mother and her partner in their new role as parents so they can more easily bond with and take care of their baby.

What is ADAM -

As for side effects, "the major concern has always been whether testosterone supplementation would put a man at greater risk for developing prostate cancer than men who haven't received testosterone supplementation," Spark says. The Androgen Deficiency in Aging Men questionnaire could improve those treatment numbers by helping men 40 and older recognize the signs of testosterone decline, a slow process that can occur over 10 to 15 years.
