FULL SPECTRUM POSTPARTUM CARE

Despite what western society would have you believe the postpartum/postnatal period goes beyond the 6 weeks following the birth of your baby. The postpartum period is a sacred time where traditionally mother rests inside for a period of time to realign, restore, recover and is taken deep care of. Our bodies go through a complete transformation, sometimes temporarily, sometimes permanently and our lives change completely. Navigating this experience can be a challenging time and at a time when society becomes more isolating and individualised, having the extra support of a doula during this time can be key.

 

After a long career in primary education focusing on inclusion, pastoral care and child mental health, working with vulnerable families in a close capacity I saw that the origins of behavioural and emotional challenges displayed at school were often rooted as early as birth. After having my own child, I further understood the importance of social care, community support, connection and compassion, and shared experiences.


As a new mother I will always consider myself postpartum! After a long and stressful birth I was supported by the village and following the ways of the ancestors I observed the 30 day laying in period to recoup, restore and realign. Now as a mother to a toddler, the support of the village still remains an important part of my experience. As your doula post partum, whether you chose to lay in or not I can help you honour this time.

After our 6 weeks together I will have helped to set you up for the time ahead as a new parent. 



Healing house of Eden is the home of my postpartum and self care support packages. Each piece is handmade with intention and love, and each herbal combination, plant and root used is deeply informed by my knowledge and passion for natural medicine. Many of the herbs are grown in my garden, all are organic and the tea blends, tinctures, oils and the steams are handmade by myself. 


I carefully select the products for C section mamas or mothers who have had long labours or interventions.


There are three boxes at varying price points where you can choose between a selection of herbal tea blends, tinctures, bath salts for healing and relaxation, a vaginal steam and oils.
