“Sometimes I think there are only two instructions we need to follow to develop and deepen our spiritual life: slow down and let go.â â Oriah Mountain Dreamer
Are you wanting the first few weeks following the birth of your baby to be a time of peace and joy rather than stress, exhaustion and overwhelm?
Have you come to the realisation that a postpartum plan might be as important as your birth plan?
Have you heard the secret that a woman’s transition from pregnancy into motherhood has the potential to be one of the powerful and potent transformations of her life?
Are you willing to be strong in your vulnerability?Â Accepting that you will needÂ support, nurturing and nourishing during your ‘fourth trimester’ so that you can focus on the vitally important work of mothering your baby?
Well done mama, you’re in the right place.
Welcome to your Slow Postpartumâ¢ …
Gentle, mindful, intentional care for new mothers and babies …
As a postpartum doula, coach and educator it is my lifeâs work to enlighten and inspire both the mothers that I work with, my community and the wider world, as to the importance and significance of this special time.Â A time that is acknowledged and revered in almost every traditional culture.Â I feel that it is imperative that we care for, support, nourish and love our new mamas, giving them the time and space to learn to be the best mothers they can be,Â removed from stress and exhaustion. In this way we can positively impact families, communities and the world.
I love to work with women and families who are motivated to both visualise and create an exceptional postpartum experience full of peace, joy and satisfaction.Â If you feel that might be you, I’d love to hear from you.
