Birth is Only the Beginning…

The first six weeks following child birth is known as the postpartum period.  At Tree of Life we believe in the Fourth Trimester which includes the first three months with your newborn. This time with your new baby is very exciting and wonderful. It is also very exhausting and a time for adaptation into parenting. It isn’t always what we think it’s going to be. It is very different having the baby on the outside, as opposed to the baby on the inside. As parents you’ve planned and dreamed for the day your baby arrives but I often hear many questions from new parents, most of them beginning with “Why didn’t anyone tell me about this?”


Because of it's amazing results with our newborn's transition into life on the outside, Tree of Life offers one free visit with our lactation consultant Allika alce, IBCLC, and one Appointment for cranial sacral therapy with Dr. WIlliam Palmer, D.C.

She also leads Breastfeeding Support meetings at our College Park Location every Wednesday at 12pm. For more info on Allika's services please visit
