The word “postpartum” in modern day society is now synonymous with depression. And the standard postpartum experience for most new moms today is certainly a depressing scene.
The average woman is, at most, prepared with some postpartum pads and baby gear.
Her support system may include a few relatives coming over to visit, not to actually tend to her needs, but to hold the baby and completely interrupt the flow and bond between mother-baby.
She may spend a few days in bed with her baby before jumping back into all of the normal day-to-day activities, completely ignoring her body’s need for deep rest.
She’s not told anything about the immense changes that have taken place on literally every level - from the physical to the emotional, mental and spiritual.
At 6 weeks postpartum, she’s given a nod from her doctor or midwife to start to exercise and have sex again and that is the extent of “postpartum care” in most women’s modern day life.
Depressing is an understatement.
This lack of care and reverence for the postpartum period in this common scenario leads to depression, depletion, pelvic floor issues, and a spiritual disconnect that manifests as low confidence in motherhood and all areas of the woman’s life.
We don’t want this to be your experience.
And it doesn't have to be!
Did you know that just like birth, the postpartum period also has a physiological blueprint? Clues of this blueprint have been left behind for us in all ancient cultures throughout the entire world.

This is for you if:
- You are a first time mother and have no idea what to expect for your postpartum
- You have planned extensively for a peaceful birth but haven’t given peaceful postpartum a thought
- This is not your first pregnancy, but you know intuitively that you missed this “golden opportunity” with your other baby or babies
- You’re ready to dive deeply into this topic together with your partner so you can be even more prepared (Yes, men are welcome on this call too!)
- You support women as part of your work and want to learn more about this postpartum period
Imagine having your freshly born baby in your arms, while you fall deeply in love, knowing that the next few weeks that await you may be some of the most blissful of your life.....
The oxytocin continues to flow for days on end because you learned the tools to prepare you for this transformational portal of time.
You’ve learned the basics of postpartum care, you’ve put a plan into action and you know that your two main jobs are this: to bond with your baby and to nurse your baby.
You’re set up to drop into those deep delicious brainwave states that the fourth trimester has to offer you which naturally help you to access healing on the physical and emotional level, as well as feel more spiritually connected and attuned to your intuition.
You respect the keys to a peaceful postpartum. You rest deeply in bed with your baby for an extended period of time. Your partner, community and other team members feed you with nourishing food that restores your system. You stay warm and cozy with your baby, helping your body to slowly return to balance. You receive loving intentional touch from those around you. And you feel supported on every level. With all of these practices put into place you reach new heights within yourself. You feel at once powerful and strong and at ease and peace.
This beautiful scene doesn’t have to be a far-off fantasy. We want the same for you. Too many women are blindsided by the intensity of postpartum, both the emotional rollercoaster and the physicality of the healing process. It’s not meant to be done alone.
We have walked this path before you and are grateful to say that our postpartum periods have been the most magical days of our lives.
Teach me what you know!
For so many, preparation is all about birth. Labor and birth are the bridge. Postpartum is the destination, and it’s where you’ll be for the rest of your life once you become a mother. It deserves your respect, care and attention.
