My passion for serving pregnant and postpartum moms began after the birth of my son ...
My son was born prematurely at 32 weeks. It was a difficult experience and I struggled postpartum. I sought support, started my perinatal training and learned so much that I implemented when I was pregnant the second time. My next pregnancy was a beautiful, low stress, connected pregnancy. I prepared for postpartum and it was filled with ease and support. Mentally, I felt great, but physically I experienced some challenges. I had an unhealing diastasis, prolapse and leaking which again led me on a journey to learn, seek support and heal.
What I learned...
Through my experiences I realized that much of what I went through can be prevented. We can go upstream to preconception and pregnancy to incorporate positive lifestyle changes that impact our postpartum experiences. We can generate beautiful states that impact our wellbeing and the health and development of baby during pregnancy and postpartum. Through preparation, obtaining knowledge and skills/practices we can thrive.
Now I'm able to share this with you...
