ROOT & BLOOM POSTPARTUM
Nourishing and supporting the mother through the delicate transition through motherhood so she can emerge stronger and more connected to herself and her baby.
The postpartum time offers a unique potential for the mother to thrive and heal deeply. Together, taking lifestyle and personal details into consideration, we will “prepare your nest,” navigate expectations, and make tangible plans for setting yourself up for a successful entry (or re-entry) into motherhood.

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. As a certified practitioner, I can help you learn and get set up to take advantage of these benefits at home.
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.

BIRTH STORY SESSIONS
We all have a beautiful story to tell, but rare is it that we experience birth without some fragments that linger in our memory causing continued discontent or pain. Created by Pam England of Birthing From Within, the Birth Story Medicine process offers a whole different way of experiencing your story and finding peace. 60 minute sessions.

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 a Cert. Lactation Counselor, Ayurvedic Postpartum Doula, INNATE Postpartum Care Provider, Birth Story Medicine facilitator, and am currently training in Holistic Prenatal, Perinatal, and Infant Nutrition and Vaginal Steaming.
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.
