“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers – strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”

Barbara Katz Rothman

Perhaps you are a new mama-to-be. You have attended antenatal classes, read books, and feel prepared for birth, and yet like life, there is a strong sense of uncertainty. It may be about how you and your relationships will cope with a new baby, how it will be once you are holding your precious baby in your arms… and you see you could be more supported, held with loving care from experts and enabled to follow your keen intuition, no matter how your journey evolves.

Family support may not be available to you, your sense of support from a ‘village’ may be missing and you need this during this special, yet vulnerable time. In home Postpartum Care provides a sense of stability and consistent support across the first few months after birthing; giving love to the mothers, so all a Mama must do is relax and feel nurtured.

My aim is to create a postpartum sanctuary where you feel supported and held while transitioning into motherhood. I cannot wait to care for you!

Importance of the Golden Month

Sacred practises and old traditions have been used throughout many cultures right after childbirth where the mother takes the time to rest, heal, connect and bond with her new baby. Members of the village or community come to care for the new mother, providing her with lots of warming and nourishing foods, massages and healing herbal remedies, while she rests and recovers.

Often, in our modern world we have forgotten such sacred practises for contemporary times and women are often expected or expect themselves to do it all on their own. They may be isolated from their village of people, and with minimal or no support, it is a common feeling of overwhelm to care for this little person who depends on them for their every need.

My mission is to provide support for new mothers, where they feel nurtured and supported while they find their way as a mother. I am here to guide and nurture through this ‘Sacred Window of Time’ of the early postpartum weeks.

My Postpartum Nurturing packages:

Through my postpartum nurture packages, my aim is to create a postpartum sanctuary where you feel supported and held while transitioning into motherhood.

Many mothers are overwhelmed and tired, and in some ways feel unsupported when they enter into the postpartum period ‘ –the 4th trimester’. They often don’t have a plan or confidence on how to tackle everyday challenges with a new little being by their side.

I’ve always held space for these beautiful mamas. Heard their stories. In fact, I’ve been there myself.

During my own postpartum period I experienced just how little support is available to new mothers. My lovely husband could not be there, as he was working full time. My midwife was a wonderful support – however that support is limited.

I found that I could not be/do everything. So after I had completed my family I knew I wanted to offer postpartum doula services to mothers.

I want for you what my postpartum-self ached for – being held, feeling nourished and nurtured. This is where my postpartum doula journey began.

Did you know that the first 40 days postpartum is a sacred window of time, where investing in yourself and your baby creates a positive impact to last a lifetime? I am passionate about creating a postpartum support during this time where you can use my expertise to care for you and your family.

I am here, to nourish and nurture your body and soul, enabling you to be in your ‘oxytocin bubble’, and to enhance your motherhood journey.

I can help you build up a loving and helpful village and support system.

The entire pregnancy and birthing process is about ‘opening’, both spiritually, mentally and physically. Once your baby is born, the body requires ‘sealing’, or closing what has been opened, and is raw and vulnerable. This is critical for proper holistic postpartum healing. Debriefing your birth story in a special space, and ceremonially honouring this sacred, new stage of your life.

This is where we introduce heat to the body on a deeper level to help a mother’s body and womb to heal and recover.

The journey of birth can take a toll on your physical and mental well-being, I can be there to support you through this.

This can be very daunting and emotional for you, while you bond with your baby and learn how to breastfeed and/or bottle-feed your wee one. I can support you and help you to achieve these milestones in ways that works for you and your baby.

Teaching you the art of bonding through sacred, loving touch with your baby.

Everyone has their own unique and wonderful parenting style, I can help support you in building up your confidence and to gains skills that will strengthen you.

You can receive delicious home-cooked meals that are specific to your postpartum care and recovery.

Organic loose leaf teas, tinctures, herbs and spices to support your body, and aid lactation.

Sacred Mother Warming Ceremony and Belly Binding

Crossing the threshold from Maiden to Mother is a massive undertaking that not only needs to be recognized and ceremoniously honoured, but deeply necessitates a healing touch that can welcome the new mama with open arms.” (Sacred Postpartum).

“Marti’s presence and support in our postpartum time was the absolute nourishment on all levels. Although I had an epic and empowering birth, I had a rocky start to breastfeeding and was struggling emotionally and spiritually with the transition of becoming a new mother. Marti was the meaning of care and dedication- she didn’t just help take care of the household chores without me even having to ask, she showed up for me in a way that brought the ultimate healing for my emotional and spiritual struggles. Her postpartum doula skills are next level; from being an abundant source of relevant info on newborn care to holding a grounded space for emotional transformation, and onto honouring me as the new mother in ceremony- you name it and she is it. If there was one thing I’d recommend new mamas to invest in, it would be to have Marti as part of the postpartum team. I am forever grateful.”
