Each week you can open up your guide (digital or printed copy) and spend a quick 10-15 minutes learning about what you'll be doing for the week to nourish and heal your postpartum body.
Not Your Average Postpartum Guide
It's easy to go on YouTube and find postpartum "safe" exercises. You can easily order and experiment with your favorite influencer's supplement suggestions. Pinterest is full of "healthy" postpartum recipes. BUT are those really SAFE and HEALTHY suggestions that will work for YOU postpartum.
THIS guide was not made by a Physical Therapist that added in her favorite recipes or a Hormone Coach that suggested a few exercises she enjoyed doing postpartum. NO!! THIS guide was made by two different experts that combined forces to create a COMPLETE STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE for your first 6 weeks postpartum. We truly considered all of your needs-physical and emotional.
Our hope is that you'll feel energized, strong, hormonally balanced and truly supported as a whole person after completing this program. Your body is working incredibly hard. You deserve the opportunity to be a Nourished Mama!

Mom of 2
“The Nourished Mama’s Guide to Postpartum is an incredible way to guide you through your postpartum journey. I wish I would have had this guide after my first born but it served me well after my second born! I had an emergency c-section, and the guide helped me build confidence by strengthening my physical and mental well-being."
Mom of 4
"I definitely align with this and think it’s super valuable information for every mama to have. And I need these strengthening exercises big time! I also love how you have both perineal & c-section care together. Meets every birth experience right where they are."

After struggling with her own imbalances that appeared as acne and migraines in her teens and trying all of the mainstream fixes, she started to do her own research.
