While interviewing these practitioners on video, I have learned so much about wellness and am so excited for you to be informed by these passionate professionals dedicated to postpartum health.

I have heard this time referred to as ‘unexpected’. It can be so stressful to navigate postpartum and to not forget about yourself.
Watch/Learn On Your Schedule
You can sit back and access these videos at any time. Over fifty videos are set up to assist with all the essentials to know during this sometimes overwhelming following birth. This is not a place of judgment or pressure to do it one way. We want you to find your own way but hearing about what works for you.
We hope for you to create relationships with wellness providers during your parenting time to assist you with all of your family’s growing needs. Including self-care for the birth parent and ways to support your baby to be well.
Health and wellness with modalities such as nutrition and exercise can make a profound impact on our lives. We all want our bodies to run well so we don’t miss anything, and our kids to have the best possible environment for longevity.
