Our adaptations

COVID-19

Since May 1, 2020, we have resumed our home respite services (relevailles) by adapting our way of working a little. We only see one family per day, we wear a mask as soon as we are closer to 2m from a member of your family and we wash our hands and objects that we touch several times per visit.

 

We call the postpartum support at home Postpartum support by day and by night n French because this is the time when the parents get back on their feet after giving birth.

Postpartum support

Sometimes our entourage can help, but in times of pandemic everyone makes efforts to reduce contact, often with grandparents unfortunately. You’re making a good decision by asking for a professionalto come and care for your baby while you take time to sleep, shower and talk about what you’re going through. You can also ask to be accompanied to an outside appointment or to go out on your own.
