We come to you. Your labor begins and when you need us, our team arrives to set everything up. We stay until 3-4 hours after your baby is born.
After your initial consultation, you will visit Hatched offices for your monthly prenatal care, until 30 weeks when you come very two weeks, until 37 weeks when you see us weekly. We will schedule an in-home visit for your 37 week visit to get ready for your home birth.
After your baby is born you will receive a 24-36 hour visit, a 3-5 day visit and a 2 week follow-up all in the comfort of your home. You will schedule a 4 week and a 6 week visit in the Hatched office. Our team is also available via text or email throughout your postpartum.

Bengkung Belly binding aids in the closing of the muscles of the abdomen along with supporting them during the healing process. This aids in the healing of Diastases Recti. It also supports the hips and pelvis while they recover from birth and the effects of relaxin. Relaxin is a wonderful hormone that loosens everything in preparation for birth but, in postpartum, it can leave our pelvis feeling unsupported. Belly Binding offers our pelvis that extra support making it feel more comfortable while our body works out the relaxin and returns to its pre-pregnancy state.
Binding offers a gentle, firm, hug-type support during the postpartum healing period. Generally the binding is worn daily for at least 4 hours for 40 days. Belly binding offers customizable support, bringing everything in and offering great back support during those long nursing sessions. No more nursing mom slouch or shoulder pain.
