How Is Your Body Feeling After Birth?
Does your body feel "off" or out of balance?
Do you have new symptoms or a medical condition that started after birth?
Do you suffer with symptoms like headaches, acne, or digestive issues?
Do you feel exhausted and like your brain is foggy?
Do you feel more irritable, anxious or depressed than usual?
Do you experience period problems (if your cycle has returned)?
Feeling depleted, exhausted, depressed and overwhelmed are NOT a normal part of motherhood. These symptoms do NOT mean you are failing.
These symptoms are a sign of a deeper problem on a body level.
Not Your Average Dietitian or Doula
When I was pregnant with my first baby I was an energetic, confident and efficient professional. I prepared for birth by rigorously reading and attending classes.
What caught my by surprise was how much I struggled AFTER my baby was born.
Both my mental and physical health quickly took a nose dive and I didn't understand why or what to do about it.
I experienced postpartum depression and anxiety, was exhausted, stressed and constantly overwhelmed. I couldn't think clearly and had no energy. My gut felt off and I tried everything that I knew of as a dietitian to improve my symptoms.
It wasn't until I was expecting my second baby that I decided things had to change for the sake of my children.

Now I Teach What I Learned
I sought out professionals to help me understand the changes that happen in a woman's body after birth and how to deeply support those shifts.
I started learning about traditional postpartum care, functional nutrition, how to support the nervous system and decrease stress.
That was the beginning of my journey!
I've spend years learning how to care for my own postpartum body and have received training as a mother-focused postpartum doula and a certification in postpartum nutrition.
Now I support other women wanting to learn to support for their own bodies in the first six years after birth!
You don’t have to do this alone. I've been where you are, and I’ll be with you every step of the way.
Encouragement and Validation:

Everyone is different, and no two bodies are alike.
