Let me ask you this and you have to promise to answer honestly...
WHAT'S YOUR POSTPARTUM PLAN?
Grin and bear it
"Bounce back" ASAP
Only cry in the shower
Mindlessly scroll social media (and end up feeling more lonely)
Act like you have superpowers > legitimate needs
Avoid all the feels⠀
Let me stop you right there.
What if I told you there was a better way?
Because we can change the landscape of early motherhood by walking this journey together and supporting each other along the way.
"The Birth of a Mother" course is the answer.
instead of looking back at who we used to be, we deeply honored pregnancy & early postpartum and it's incredible raw beauty?
What if we prepared for our own birth, postpartum and mothering experiences as much as (or more than) the baby's?
What if we expected and demanded time for ourselves, to engage in ESSENTIAL healing and restful mama self-care?
What if we allowed motherhood to be something beautiful & fulfilling instead of allowing it to make us feel inadequate?

Think of me as your birth and baby planner.
(Like a wedding planner but for mamas and babies)
Most people spend months or even years planning their wedding day and next to no real time planning their birth.
...make it worth remembering fondly by investing in the experience and your own education.
I can't promise you a "perfect birth" (if there is such a thing), but you will walk away from this class with the knowledge, wisdom and confidence to make the best decisions for yourself, your partner and your baby (and that's the real secret to having the perfect birth *for you*).
My friend, you will always remember your birthing day.
The truth is...
your postpartum experience doesn't have to be gross, shameful, isolating or lonely.
And motherhood doesn't have to be lonely. It ALL can be beautiful and empowering.
