Postpartum Care

Imagine having someone that mothers you postpartum the way you mother your children ...

Imagine having someone to help you organize your community, your family, your home, and your life so you can just rest, relax, and bond with your baby for several weeks after birth...

Imagine receiving bodywork and massage, enjoying warm herbal baths, being fed nourishing food, having a shoulder to cry on, and someone to talk to that understands and gets it while you are deep in the throes of caring for a new born...

Imagine having someone to help you to prepare and figure out how you are going to get enough sleep, enough support, enough nourishment, and loving connection during the first six weeks to a year postpartum.....

Sound good? This is why you want the support of a Postpartum Doula.

As a certified INNATE Postpartum Care Practitioner, I have been trained in worldwide traditional postpartum care practices that are also backed by the latest science. These practices support women to recover, heal, and thrive after birth, and for long-term health and wellness during the child-bearing years and beyond.

Postpartum visits may include a combination of the following:

  • emotional support

  • setting up a sitz bath, warm herbal compress, yoni steam, or herbal bath

  • warm oil massage

  • warm oil abdominal massage

  • castor oil packs

  • mother wrapping ceremony (closing the bones ceremony)

  • moxibustion treatment

  • guided visualizations, including birth story clearing and processing

  • comprehensive self-care education in scar-tissue remediation, vaginal self-massage, holistic breast care, and a healing postpartum diet 

  • education on basic baby care, biological breastfeeding, and pelvic floor health

  • preparing a healthy snack or heating up a meal

  • caring for the baby while you have a shower or some self-care time

  • light housekeeping, folding laundry

 

Other Services:

  • community support organizing

  • be an advocate for you as you navigate postpartum and maternal health supports​

When I don’t have the answers, I will refer you out to reliable resources or trusted professionals who practice: Breastfeeding consultation, Holistic Pelvic Care™, Biodynamic Cranial Sacral, Women's Health Physiotherapy, Acupuncture, Baby Led Sleep™ Coaching and more.
