Following ancient traditions of postpartum care, having birthed four children myself and as a Mother Roaster. I have been certified to offer services that gently ease women through their final stage of birth: Motherhood. From Healing Foods, Warming Baths, Benkung Belly Binding, and Placenta Prana, it is my call to help women to be WELCOMED and HONORED throughGENTLE + LOVING care. Mother Roasting is the care of the new mother After Birth, and the recovery and health of women as they embark on their journey into Motherhood. It is the tender wrapping up of a new mother's body during her first few weeks after birth. It is about restoring traditions of various cultures. New Mothers are given warm, nourishing beverages to sip. In India new mothers are given daily warm oil massages to help soothe strained abdominal muscles, reduce bleeding and enhance the body’s healing efforts towards the womb. In Guatemala new mothers are given Bajos with abdominal massage, which is a Mayan tradition. Feeding the soul with nourishment and warming the body both physically and internally it is believed to seal the gateways which have been opened by the birth, and to keep wind and cold from entering a vulnerable New Mother’s body. Thus through warmth a New Mother is honored and given time to recuperate her body from the birth process, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The month after giving birth is called "The Golden Month" in Chinese Medicine, and it is the art of bringing together Ceremony, Wisdom and Culture during your fourth trimester. Mother Roastersare charged with HOLDING SPACE for women on the other side of birth. Reverent with my service to New Mothers,I am blessed to be a witness as a mother begins feeding her baby milkI honor the journey she has been on, and pay respect to the major transitions taking place.
To be clear I am not a traditional postpartum doula, and I don't do the typical baby or household care that a PD, nanny, night nurse, or maid would do. I support the Mother PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY and SPIRITUALLY. I bring these Ancient Practices all together to help with recovery during the fourth trimester.
