Pregnancy and Postpartum, the days can be filled with joy, excitement, exhaustion, and more as you grow your family. You may be needing resources, wondering what’s next, or where to turn? We’re here for you!
We’ve curated this guide with the new Mama in mind. Our goal is to connect you to local businesses and practitioners who will help make your transition into motherhood, or into a growing family, as stress free as possible.
As always we want to thank our partners for making the guide to pregnancy + postpartum possible. Thank you to Douglas J Salon + Spa, MI Village Birth + Family Services, KD Photography, Once Upon A Child Okemos, Volz Family Chiropractic, and Sunset Wellness and Nutrition.
Douglas J Salon and Spa
Baby registries are a fun way to get stocked up on what your baby will need, but don’t forget about YOU! Douglas J Gift Cards are a great way to make sure you have guilt-free funds to use on yourself after the baby arrives. Gift cards can be used on any services including pre and postnatal massages, or getting yourself glammed up for newborn family photos.
Motherhood comes with a world of changes to your body, including your skin and hair! If you’re feeling lost or unsure of how to handle these changes we are here to help! Our Estheticians and Stylists are always happy to provide a complementary skin or hair consultation to address any concerns you are having and give you suggestions on what will work for you as a new mom.
