What's the Fourth Trimester?

The fourth trimester is the first 12 weeks after you deliver your baby. It’s a time of major physical and emotional change as your baby adjusts to life on the outside, and you adjust to your new life as a mom. The fourth trimester is a critical time for you, your baby and your family to have the care and support you deserve.

Meet Megan

Megan Francis is a Board Certified Nurse Practitioner. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from James Madison University and spent several years working in intensive care and home health nursing. Megan was inspired to create Fourth Trimester Postnatal Retreat after a difficult pregnancy and rough delivery of her daughter Palmer left her feeling overwhelmed and in need of recovery. She knows firsthand how stressful it is to be sent home with a new baby so soon after giving birth. She wanted to create a place where moms, their babies, and partners could be taken care of, receive help from experts, and become part of a supportive community.
