My Postpartum Doula Care is in-home support after birth for the mother. This generally includes breastfeeding guidance, nourishing food preparation, comfort measures, and many tools to support the mother's healing journey.

Our first communication is through the skin, and babies need ongoing positive touch to survive. Massage from a loving caregiver promotes trust and attachment, helps parents learn baby's cues, and stimulates oxytocin (the "feel good hormone) and decreases cortisol (a stress hormone). It helps stimulate body to brain connection and develop body awareness, can improve sleep, and strengthens the immune system. Learn more about massage basics, infant-specific strokes, oils, and more. Inquire for class details.
Yoni steaming has long been used globally, especially for postpartum recovery. It has been shown to rapidly speed healing by having a positive impact on blood pressure, pulse, uterine restoration, reduction of weight and waist size, healing of tears, gapping, swelling and hemorrhoids, the expulsion of lochia, bowel regularity and hemorrhoid reduction. Through a virtual consultation, I can help you learn and get set up to take advantage of these benefits at home.

My passion for supporting women through their postpartum period grew from her own experiences. By the time I was expecting my third baby, I had figured out that prioritizing my own wellness was a necessity for the whole family, not an indulgence. My business, Root and Bloom Postpartum has grown along with that third baby. I now nurture mamas through education, one-on-one support, and postpartum nourishment.
I am trained as an INNATE Postpartum Care Provider, Cert. Lactation Counselor, Ayurvedic Postpartum Doula, Birth Story Medicine facilitator, and Prenatal and Postpartum Cert. Nutrition Consultant. Currently studying Quantum Holistic Midwifery.
Birth is only the beginning of your parenting journey. Mothers were once honored and held during this fragile and beautiful time by wise women in their community. Let me be your village.
