Moss Postpartum House
We would like to share with you an organization that is very near and dear to one of our friends and clients: Moss Postpartum House.
Our friend Patricia has always had an interest in supporting new mothers and their families. For a time, she worked as a Doula and I had the pleasure of having her as my Doula when I was pregnant with my twins in 2010. She recently stumbled across Moss Postpartum House and it’s owner, Paige Barlow, and asked us to help get the word out about this great new organization.
Moss Postpartum house is the first of it’s kind in North America and is conveniently located within a five minute walk of the old Grace Hospital on 14th Street and 8th Avenue NW. Their mission is to “provide a place where postpartum families can access the physical, psychological and emotional support that they and, their newborn babies deserve”.
According to Patricia, the organization has a very welcoming atmosphere. The premises have recently gone extensive renovations with a focus on comfort and efficiency. There is plenty of street parking in the rear. On sunny days, moms can often be seen chatting on the front porch and soaking up the sunshine whilst their little ones play on the lawn.
Moss Postpartum House offers assistance with breastfeeding and postpartum recovery., in addition to private appointments geared to individual needs. They also offer community building educational workshops, plus a variety of classes and events tailored specifically for the first year postpartum.
They are a collective of independent business owners working together to bring their expertise to benefit the whole family. Their team includes a chiropractor, psychologist, counselor, pelvic health physical therapist, lactation consultant, naturopathic doctor, registered massage therapist, craniosacral therapist, sleep consultant, child development expert, postpartum Doula trainer and last, but not least, a very friendly office staff.
