Baby Audrey was one of our August babies, now 6 weeks old. Her mama, Jennifer, appreciated our postpartum home visits so she could follow the Chinese tradition of "sitting the month," which included help with baby, lots of rest, and nutritious foods to build back up her qi after childbirth. Now they are all thriving and strong as they return to usual active life!
