Post Partum Women’s Support

I am currently completing full certification as an Ayurvedic Post Partum Doula. I’ve been working with post-partum women for over a decade, but my own experiences as a mother – and the support I received – greatly informed and changed the support I offer.

I walk the walk in my own home. You will find me meditating with toddlers on my lap and a stew slow cooking on the stove. Our home is chaotic, creative and vibrant – there are often holes in the walls and ceilings, the children are usually partially clothes, and you will most definitely step on a Lego every time you visit – and I have learned to live slowly, peacefully, and easily in this beauty.

Scope of Services

The services provided will be non-medical. I will assist you with Ayurvedic healing, recovery and self-care measures; including:

  • Ayurvedic freshly prepared, individualized meals
  • Individualized use of herbs (included in foods, teas, etc.)
  • Support in gentle household routines which ensure the recovery of mother
  • Emotional and physical recovery post labor through yoga practices
  • Assisting with care of baby so that you, the mother may rest
  • Breastfeedingsupport
  • Support with baby wearing
  • Household organization (grocery shopping, laundry, tidying and dish washing)
  • Unlimited/ongoing phone and email support
  • Private yoga, meditation, and Ayurvedic bodywork sessions with each visit

Philosophy / Approach

My approach matters little compared to yours. I’m here to listen, offer expertise where appropriate, and support you on realizing your vision for motherhood. My philosophy is heavily colored by yoga practice, which has included extended periods of silence and meditation. To me, slow living and meditation are keys to a fulfilling, healthy life. In the first 42 days after birth, slow living must include proper self care, nutrition, rest and meditation. I’m here to provide for your needs in these areas so you may enter motherhood with as much balance as possible.
