GETTING YOU MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY
prepared for life beyond birth!
In our society today we fixate so much on the baby and the birth that we simply forget about the mother and the journey thereafter. After the rigorous and demanding act of birth, the six weeks following are considered to be the most critical time in a woman's life. It is a time of massive adjustment, as your body continues to transform, your feelings tend to be all over the place, and your sense of self begins to change and morph.
make true healing your first priority during the fourth trimester
Postpartum doulas are a great blessing for many of us when the women in our lives are busy tending to their own lives. As a Postpartum Doula, Brooke will come into your experience as an extra set of compassionate hands to hold you, your babe, your household. Assisting you in this transition as you live a life with another being in your family. Nurturing your family as you learn to thrive together. Restoring your sense of normality as you investigate what that feels like for you. She will mold the home into independence so that when she leaves you, you’re fulfilled in your role as a parent.
a mother-centered approach to balancing health and well-being
For those that follow a natural, holistic lifestyle, Brooke can approach your care through the lens of 3 Ayurvedic doshas in an effort to better understand your physiological and emotional needs. In Ayurveda (the science of longevity), we can use simple ways to tone and strengthen the Vata dosha and digestive system during the postpartum time. When your doshas are balanced your body can function optimally, your mind is calm and clear, and your heart can sing and exude love.
Let's meet for 30 minutes to go over any initial questions you may have, discuss what you are looking for in your labor support, go into greater detail about our practice and approach, and explore how we can best meet your needs.
