Postpartum Love

Traditional Healing Care and Support In Your Postpartum

Traditional postpartum doula care is support that is based on global traditions that have been passed down through generations.  I would be honored to support you with this extra love and care in this special phase of your life.  If you are in the NOVA, DC or Maryland area and looking for traditional postpartum doula care and bodywork, this is the place for you. 

Traditional Postpartum Doula Care

As a doula and birth worker, I believe in the central importance of the postpartum period to the healing, nourishing and creation of a new mother and a new family.  With the right kind of support and care, new parents can be celebrated and supported in a vulnerable phase of their life.

Our modern-day culture has started to appreciate the unique and global traditions passed down through generations specifically for the postpartum period.  This is the time to nurture new parents, watch them bond with each other and their new baby and allow them to take life at a gentler pace.  I offer different postpartum care packages based on this.

Traditional Postpartum Care can be the key to a less-anxious, better-rested and more fulfilling postpartum.

I have trained in postpartum doula care through many paths, including self-study, Doula Trainings International, Centehua Sage's 4th Trimester Foods, Layla B.'s Traditional Moroccan Postpartum Medicine and am currently (super excited to be) enrolled for deeper learning through Innate Traditions postpartum training.
