Taking care of a Mother, so she can take care of her family!
Helping a mother to rest, heal and get nourished
Becoming a mother is always a big change for herself and her family, doesn't matter how many children she already has. That a mother can fully embody this change she needs a lot of rest, nourishment, care and support.
Holding the mother, not the baby
Usually when a mother gives birth, everything is all about the baby.
The baby is been taken care off, fed, cuddled, and given all the love from all family members and visitors.
The mother is very likely still in the place of digesting her birth experience, she is just functioning, not able to think much due to the lack of sleep. She may be overwhelmed by emotions, hormonal changes and the new life situation. It may be hard for her to move, as her body may be still be in pain, and she is bleeding and swollen.
Rest, Bodywork, appropriate Nutrition, Warmth and Community
These are the 5 most important needs for a mother to be able to feel empowered, strong, loved, supported and healthy.
Rest is essential for a mothers pelvic and hormonal long term health.
Bodywork helps to settle the nervous system, gives a sense of relaxation and care, and supports the immune system.
Nutrition is as important, it should be warm, easy to digest and a nutritious diet to support healing on all levels.
Warmth, warm food, warm touch, warm environment.
Community, we are not meant to be alone. It needs a village to raise a child. Let's bring back more community into the life of lonely mothers.
These 5 pillars are created by Rachelle Garcia Selgia, the founder of innates traditions.

My personal connection to postpartum care
I really have a big passion for mothers and of course the babies. After becoming a mother in 2019 myself I became aware how important the care and nourishment of the mother is and how much knowledge and trust we need to regain.
I gave birth to my son at home, being held by two midwifes that navigated our birth complications professionally. We had experienced a shoulder dystocia. Means the baby got stuck in the birth channel. I was so happy we did not experience this in the hospital. And I was able to process this experience in my own home.
I was able to stay at home and rest and heal for 6 weeks with great support of my partner and my mother. I realized that this is not the usual, and even myself was still lacking of knowledge and resources. Ever since I have been on the journey to embody this new role as a mother, and dedicate part of my work to help new mother thrive and process their rite of passage fully.
My deepest wish is that mothers feel seen, loved, held, nourished and empowered to continue living their dream life!
