Tending the sacred postpartum window with love, wisdom & grace

Sacred Window Mother Care begins with preparation in the prenatal period. While getting to know one another & building our connection, we’ll cover:

  • Basics of postpartum psychophysiology; preparing to tend the postpartum mother – body, soul, heart and mind.
  • Pantry Prep – As desired, we will explore your kitchen together and assess how to best set up your space for preparing satisfying postpartum nourishment.
  • Mama’s Nourishment Companion – You’ll receive a printed copy of my original guide offering elemental perspectives on the Sacred Window and highlighting key postpartum food principles, star ingredients, best food preparation techniques, herbal allies, and adaptable + delicious recipes. Plus a bonus section on stellar nourishment for labor & immediate postpartum.
  • Abhyanga instruction – Learn how to give yourself a loving oily massage; invite your partner & loved ones to learn as well.
  • Courageous & Compassionate ~ And for your partner, an audio workshop on postpartum preparation for dads

As desired, I will assist in organizing your family’s support network so that you have a beautiful nest of postpartum support, a web that extends beyond me and will serve to bring your greater family/community closer together.

Enjoy postpartum care on its own or as an expansion of Holistic Birth Doula Care.
