Traditional Rituals for Postpartum Mamas

It is with great honor and humility that I offer my services to mother the mother.

The 11th moon is the cycle of healing and bonding between the mother and her new babe. In Ayurveda we say, 42 days for 42 years. The AyurDoula mothers the mother with nutrition, herbal teas, massage and rituals for 42 days to inspire an abundance of rest and rejuvenation for a lifetime of wellbeing.

As your postpartum AyurDoula

I will be in service to your individual needs to ensure you have the supportive environment that is aligned with your greatest wisdom as new mama. There are many possible traditional rituals to choose from to support this profound time.

Together we will create the services that are most in service to your needs.

Laura helped us realize that rest and recuperation for both of us was an integral part to providing attentive care to our newborn. She empowered us to ask for the support that we needed from our friends and family, even when that support seemed outside the scope of what we thought was normal.
Laura came to our home and transformed our bedroom into a sacred space and gave the mother an oil massage that was healing and rejuvenating. During the massage, she was completely present with the mom and shared beautiful earth mama wisdom! She was patient with the baby/mama needs and did not make anyone feel rushed, or that time was scarce. She left us with guidance and material for baby oil massage and gifted us healing herbs and snacks that helped us for weeks!
We have and will continue to recommend Laura to mothers in the future!
