What is the Fourth Trimester?

The Fourth Trimester is the 12 weeks post birth that are exceptionally important for supporting the ongoing well-being of mother and baby. A season of family change and growth, the Fourth Trimester continues on from the third trimester of pregnancy post-birth as mothers recover and learn a new way of being with their newborns. During this time, Mother and baby are still intricately connected, even when the umbilical cord is long gone.  Better understanding the unique needs of both Mother and baby during this time can create a deeply supportive experience when we consider a holistic view of what thriving as a new family looks like.
