Postpartum Care for Mothers

The postpartum period involves integrating change on all levels:  physical, mental, spiritual and relational.  The transition to motherhood is not about going back to your old self but rather beginning a  journey home to a new version of YOU!

The postpartum care I provide to women is based on the Innate Postpartum Care Training which I am currently studying as well as the twenty plus years of experience of tending to mothers as a Birth Doula.  

Why sign up for postpartum care?


  • To receive gentle and nurturing guidance during this important transition 

  • The care and nurturing you give yourself at this time will have rippling effects for yourself, your family for generations to come.

  • To set good and clear intentions for yourself going through this transformative time 

  • To receive comforting emotional support

  • To experience someone holding space for you so you can process your birth experience

  • To receive gentle massage and body work (if virtual you will be guided to do self-massage)

What to expect?

You will receive one on one nurturing postpartum wellness care based on the postpartum traditions that promote optimal health and healing in the postpartum period.   The key here is truly being honoured as a new mother by another woman, an opportunity to share your birth story, to have some body work and a closing of the bones ceremony if you wish.  A ceremony which brings gratitude and honour into the postpartum body and spirit.

This postpartum care service is truly one of the most important gifts you can offer a new mother.
