Once I was told by a male supervisor that I was too 'passionate and activist' about helping mothers. I strongly disagree. Women used to gather around each other and offer support, healing, and empowerment during the sacred postpartum period. Today they are offered no support. I offer support in a way that can only be given woman to woman and cater to the unique needs of motherhood.

Increased cesarean sections, short hospital stays, far-flung families, inadequate maternity leave, financial strain, and a lack of parenting education all contribute to the challenges moms face adjusting to the new role of full-time caregiver. No wonder so many women struggle during their first year postpartum! Therapeutic support can make a huge difference for women having a hard time postpartum.
