Canada's Premium Postnatal Services

Your baby is the centre of your world, you are the centre of ours.

We’re on a mission to
revolutionize postpartum care in Canada

Across the globe, the journey into motherhood is embraced with unique traditions and dedicated care that puts the focus on the mother, so that she can be herself for her newborn. From the holistic well-being emphasized in South Korea's 'sanhujori' to the restorative practices of 'sitting the month' in China, and the comprehensive support found in Taiwan and the Netherlands, postpartum care takes on various forms, each deeply rooted in cultural heritage and a commitment to nurturing new mothers.

The staff was amazing - the caregivers are all extremely qualified and are great communicators. I was nervous at first, but they made it easy to accept their help in looking after baby, including overnight, so I could get some much needed rest and relaxation... They have really thought of everything in terms of supplies for both mom and baby.."
