Services-Thrive Throughout Motherhood

 

 

To me, thriving throughout motherhood means that people only know that you have children if your children are with you. Not because you are always rushing to the bathroom or because you have a post-baby pooch. It means returning to the activities that you engaged in before you had children and doing them without pain or leaking. It means that you are unapologetically confident and fully embrace the power that it took to give birth. Whether you are giving birth for the first time or have done it several times before, I would love the honor of helping you not only survive, but thrive throughout motherhood! For a one-time 30-minute phone consultation, the fee is $50.00. For ongloing consultation, the fee is $200/month.

During pregnancy, your body goes through changes that will not reverse themselves without intervention. However, most moms resume working, having sex, and exercising without addressing those changes. Don’t be like most moms. Take care of yourself so that you can thrive both as a mother and as a woman.
