  • About you

    You are a loving, fun and committed parent who wants the best for your kids.

     

    You want to offer your child the world. You have plans for how you want to provide differently for your children than you received.

     

    There is just one big problem with that plan.

     

    Your body isn’t making it easy.

     

    You didn’t even dream that you could have physical difficulties during or after giving birth, but here you are.

     

    I've been there too...

  • From fragile to fantastic

    my story

     

    After my son was born, I struggled for 3 1/2 years with regular, recurring pain and instability in my feet, back and pelvis. I remember feeling terrified and depressed.

     

    I was scared that I would feel this way for the rest of my life.

    I went to physiotherapy, chiropractic, and took up belly dance to get my core strong. While they were helpful they did not fix me.

     

    I felt breakable.

    Finally, I started dragging myself out of bed before my son woke up, so I could do something about it.

     

    I started with 20 minutes every day of very simple slow variations of sun salutations.

     

    I got stronger, and was tuning in and listening to my body.

     

    I started to notice a difference.

     

     

  • The reality is....

     

    Many of us have an idealistic view of birth being natural and uncomplicated

     

    except that most of us do not use our bodies in healthy way, we are a sedentary culture and birth isn't easy for everyone.

     

     

    Many people have uncomplicated births and recover easily.

     

    Many do not.

     

    If you are experiencing difficulties in recovery from childbirth I want you to get the support you need to thrive.

    There is currently a lack of support for new moms.

     

    Once the baby is born and separate from the mother, all the attention stays on the health of the baby.  

     

    There is very little accessible instruction and support on how to recover physically and what to do if you keep experiencing physical difficulties. 

     

     I want to change that.

     

    I believe that the health of our moms is important.

     

    The health of primary caregivers defines the health of our children and the future of our society.

     

    Children are not able to regulate their nervous system until they are around 2 years old. Until then they rely on the nervous system regulation of their caregivers.

     

     

    If their caregiver is…

    • in chronic physical pain

    • worried their back or pelvis will go out

    • unable to bend into the car to lift baby out of the car seat without pain

    • exhausted from night feeding

    • without time to nourish themselves

     

    it becomes very difficult for moms to regulate their nervous system.

     

    Where does that leave baby?  

     

     With erratic regulation and prone to anxiety and depression.

     

    A common state for many adults right now.

     

    I believe that if we take care of our parents... 

     

    We nurture happy healthy emotionally stable children

     

    Who become healthy leaders who positively impact our world.
     

     

    Addressing and caring for your own body and mind has a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of your child.

     

    I work with mothers to help them feel safe, comfortable, strong and supported in their bodies again. 

     

    If you are in pain or feeling unsafe in your body, I want to work with you to help you develop an ongoing healing relationship with your body.
