A Chat with Postpartum & Posh
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We provide housekeeping services, infant care, meal preparations and anything else to benefit the recovering mother. We differ in that we also staff nurses to provide tips, tricks and advice for the new mother.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
China has a 30 day resting confinement period. Taiwan has lavish, duty-free suites for postpartum mothers. In contrast, the US has 3 days in the hospital and back to business as usual. It was clear even as a nursing student that women needed adequate, peaceful recovery and hence Postpartum & Posh!
What do you love most about your job?
I love watching the bonding process between mothers and their children. No matter how many children she has, there is always a beautiful connection that occurs. I enjoy being able to help foster and encourage that bonding.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Tears. When women realize that they can come home and simply sit on the couch and stare into their babies eyes, they become overwhelmed with gratitude and happiness. Knowing that the things they would normally stress about are taken care of usually brings about tears of joy.
