MOM plus ME
New moms have many expectations about what motherhood may look like and how they will juggle their new lives. Childbirth changes many things in a woman's life; the physical body and movement, habits and routines for self-care, communication with loved ones and partners, management of home and work life.
Any other health related situation that changes a person's life so dramatically would automatically generate a referral for rehabilitative services.
MOM + ME is here to meet some of these needs.
What do MOM + ME services look like?
Our services include individual, one-on-one meetings
in the home to help mom design and implement a plan for rehabilitation and becoming a new parent. Treatment plans will be client centered but may include both a physical and mental health/cognitive focus. Services are not diagnostic of any illness or disease but serve as a support for health and prevention of further illness.
Services may include:
Screening and recommendations for mental health needs
Screening and recommendations for pelvic health needs
Breastfeeding education and support
Assessment of occupational needs and barriers
Ergonomic recommendations to reduce pain and avoid injury
Nutrition support through meal planning
Parenting and child development education
Treatment plans for support to full recovery from birth and engagement in life to mom's satisfaction
Who are these services for?
All moms looking for physical and/or mental health support during pregnancy and after birth. Moms who have experienced illness during or after pregnancy, birth complications, or a significant life trauma near to birth are at a higher risk for physical and mental illness and may benefit from an increased level of care. Services are not limited to first time moms or moms in early postpartum. Any mom who is struggling with the day to day tasks of parenting, self-care, work, or home management.

From one mom
Hi, I'm Jenica. Asan occupational therapist and mom-preneur of 3 kiddos (1 year, 3.5 years, and 6 years), I've noticed a healthcare gap for postpartum mothers. Seeing myself and my friends navigate our new lives as we came into motherhood helped me to identify the need for more care. Moms who adopt children need support during this transition as well.
I envision a new dynamic in postpartum care where rehabilitation services are a given component of treatment post birth. The services I provide do not dictate how you should be you or how you should be MOM. If you work with me, I'll be learning right along with you as we discover your needs, wants, hopes, and goals together.
With nearly a decade of experience and training in crisis mental health, trauma informed care, perinatal mood and anxiety, breastfeeding education and physical and cognitive needs for rehabilitation, I help you design and implement a plan for postpartum recovery that supports you and your family. I continue to seek new knowledge and evidence for rehabilitation for new moms.
