Postpartum support

MOST PEOPLE LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES associate postpartum with the word “depression”. the reality is that difficult births, systematic oppression, and a culturally disrespected and unsupported postpartum stage is leaving new mothers fragmented and depleted. in many Eastern cultures today and in ancient times the first few months following birth is upheld as sacred, wise women pass down healing traditions through the lineage and the community comes together to mother the new mother. thankfully times are shifting and people are starting to recognize and talk about the weight of that impact of birth.

The truth is, if you can emerge from pregnancy, birth and new motherhood whole and well, it will positively impact your health and vitality for the rest of your life.
