Specialized home care for new moms by a women’s health expert and physical therapist
With 4th Trimester Postpartum Home Care, you’ll feel empowered by expert guidance that addresses your individual postpartum concerns, and provides you with a clear, evidence-based framework to heal quickly, cope better, and get back to being you again.
This is not just pelvic physical therapy, and this is not your run-of-mill physical therapy visit. From back pain with feeding to leaking when you sneeze to helping you heal properly from a difficult delivery — there’s no limit to the support we can provide! With your initial visit ($225), you will get a thorough evaluation, a comprehensive treatment plan, hands-on manual techniques, and specific exercises tailored to you. Follow-up visits are $180 each, and can be reimbursed by insurance depending on your benefits.
The first three trimesters were all about baby — now it’s time for YOU.
Why 4th Trimester Care?
Pregnancy changes your whole body + every delivery is unique + babies turn your schedule inside-out! This is why I take a personalized, whole-body approach to healing with each and every one of my patients and choose to offer the convenience of home visits during this critical postpartum time.
- Get a jump start on healing from episiotomies, tearing, C-sections, or diastasis recti (abdominal gap)
- Get properly checked for prolapse and learn how to resolve the symptoms
- Discuss sensitive topics in the privacy and comfort of your own home
- Eliminate the stress of getting out the door to make an appointment on time
- Schedule around nap time so you don’t need to get childcare
- Take time to pump or feed baby if you need to during the visits
- Treatment plans WORK because they’re tailored to your specific space, equipment, lifestyle, and goals

Frequently Asked Questions
First visit: $225
Includes a thorough evaluation of you and your health concerns, a comprehensive treatment plan, hands-on manual techniques, and specific exercises tailored to you. To maximize our treatment time and the benefit you get from our appointment, I will send you the paperwork to complete ahead of time. To make sure you can refer back to what we discussed, information and detailed exercise descriptions will all be provided to you via email.
Follow up visits: $180
Each visit builds on the previous one, with a focus on hands-on techniques and a progression of your exercises as appropriate. We will troubleshoot any roadblocks you may have encountered or address any questions that arose since our last appointment as we work together towards comprehensive postpartum healing.
The simplest answer is: it depends. Without a thorough evaluation and understanding of your condition, it’s difficult to say how many visits it might take you to see results – and it also depends on how you define success! For a mom who is eager to get back to running but leaks a little every time she jogs around the block, and has no pain or other symptoms, it might only take several weeks or months to get back up to speed. For a woman who had complex pelvic issues prior to pregnancy (and if a difficult delivery only compounded the problem), it can take longer. For someone who doesn’t require or desire any pelvic work, but has nagging back and neck pain since the baby came, it can take only a few weeks.
Most often, the determining factor is how much you are able to prioritize your self-care. Visits are often no more than once a week or once every other week, depending on your condition and your availability – but this requires a strong commitment from you to perform the prescribed exercises and techniques in order to fast-track you towards the results you want!
You do NOT need a referral to visit a physical therapist anymore (thanks to recent Direct Access laws). This means you can schedule your first visit today, without adding on another doctor’s appointment in order to do so!
If you are planning to submit for reimbursement from your insurance company, this is when you *may* need a referral from your medical doctor. Some companies require a referral in order to provide reimbursement for your visits, since I am an out-of-network provider. You can find out more about your benefits by calling the number on your insurance card.
This is not just pelvic physical therapy, and this is not your run-of-mill physical therapy visit. Pregnancy changes your whole body, and everybody is different – so I take a personalized, whole-body approach to healing with each and every one of my postpartum patients. Free 15 minute phone consultations are provided so you can be sure that a postpartum 4th Trimester Care is the right choice for you. No question is too weird or awkward… trust me on that!
