My intention for every woman I serve is for her to feel informed of the importance of postnatal care for longevity and family balance, affirmed in trusting her own powerful intuition, and deeply supported in honoring her unique physiological needs as a growing mother.
"Ayurveda, the ancient 'science of life' of India, teaches the principle 'forty-two days for forty-two years,' which claims that the way a mother is nourished for the first six weeks after birth can determine how successfully she gives her light to the world for her next four decades."
"You've heard the saying, 'It takes a village to raise a child.' It takes a village to usher a woman into motherhood as well. In the past, a new mother would be surrounded by a circle of caring, doting women-aunts, sisters, mother-in-law, neighbors-from the moment she went into labor and lasting deep into the first weeks with baby. These firm and loving hands would tend to the external pieces of her life so she had the space to melt into the healing, bonding, and adjustment of the postpartum period. But today, we often live far from our families, and that circle of help is not immediate or expected. A woman must be proactive about creating her own version of a postpartum support system."
