"As you take your first faltering, tender steps as mother and child, you are equally raw, equally vulnerable. In the first forty days after delivery, it can seem as if all the world wants to come and hold your baby. But to fully inhabit your new role as mother - with its astonishing requirements for giving energy, attention, and love - it is you who must be held. Sink into stillness and receive."
The First Forty Days
The Postpartum is such a special, tender part of the pregnancy journey and
I'd be honored to walk along the path with you
I offer local and distance services to support woman + families during this sacred window. Why? Because we weren't designed to go through this phase, as some refer to as the 4th trimester, alone. In fact we weren't designed to go though it with just one or two wonderful support people. It's time to consider what new mother's truly need post-birth in order to fully heal and integrate the massive experience that's just occurred and to gain level footing with the undertaking that mothering this child demands them to. And I'll tell you that honestly..
This isn't a luxury, it's a necessity.
85% of the healing and recovery that occurs after birth happens those first six weeks. Nourishing the postpartum body and tending to the complex processes for the first forty days is thought to be an investment in a mother's vitality for the next forty years to come. Ultimately,
This is a mother's life-long mental, emotional and Spiritual wellness we're to consider.
I invite expecting families to learn more, to consider that they might need more assistance than thought previously, so they may set themselves up to thrive.
Across many longstanding traditions, food and drinks given to the mother post-birth have common qualities of being warming, easy to digest, and rich in minerals and collagen.
This bill of fare is specifically served to support optimal healing, restore balance and vitality, and encourage lactation.
I provide a local food delivery service that offers just that.
Meals can be utilized by anyone who would benefit from nutritionally dense cuisine - during pregnancy, postpartum, and beyond.
This service makes an irreplaceable gift to the newly postpartum family, consider adding it to your registry or investing for a loved one. For package details and menu options, click the link below.

Nurturing support for the new mother is far too foreign of a concept in modern culture. Supporting the new mother is a necessity, not the luxury it is often colored to be.
Many of us have been indoctrinated to believe that shear will-power and self-sufficiency will get us through the early days post birth.
I'm hear to tell you that you aren't alone in thinking that and to share the biggest secrete of the trade: the key to optimal healing, physical + emotional wellness, and even bliss postpartum, is to have the right support during the first few weeks post birth.
The postpartum experience is a time of natural uncertainty and vulnerability. Its a time when physically, a new mother's bio-chemistry is transforming, and their body is healing + expanding in an entirely new way. Externally, parent(s) are learning about how to meet the needs of their baby and integrate this new person into their lives. Add on any part of the birth + postpartum experience that didn't go "as planned" and it's an ocean of life experience you've got to digest. We are capable of traversing this ocean, and having the right support makes it possible to thrive along the way.
