Postpartum Support

Postpartum is one of the most spectacular and sacred times of a woman’s life and yet it can also be isolating and overwhelming. Today it is hard to find respectful empowering information and caring support during this extremely vulnerable period, and every woman has a right to be held with love. Her personal needs should be heard and met with the greatest respect and alignment no matter whether physical, emotional, hormonal or spiritual.

Postpartum is one of the most important events of any humans life yet it has been forgotten by mainstream western society. Looking back through every traditional culture we see that the first 40 days are not only honoured but given profound attention. Each culture having its own special repetoire of nutrition, teas, belly binding, massage, yoni steaming and various other nourishing ceremonial events.

Today we now have access to a wonderful combination of modern and traditional support tools for the profound period of ones life.

Sadly the common narrative around parenting babies doesn’t come from evidence-based research, even information from the medical world. Professionals and friends are often quick to prescribe sleep training and formula instead of helping mothers find empowering tools that work best for them and their baby.

These sessions are focused on mother/baby centered care and biologically aligned principles. In other words following the needs of mother and baby as close to nature as possible.

“I didn’t plan on becoming a prenatal and postnatal coach, I simply fell in love with supporting mothers.” 

Kheyrne Danu

It takes a village to hold a mother during this time and so often we expect our partners to be the whole village. In this work we look at options such as a postpartum doula, and help your loved ones to help you with the support you are truly needing. It’s often hard to ask for support and society tells Mothers they are supposed to be able to do this all alone. It’s even harder when we don’t know what we need. We will work out the right kind of support for you as an individual and also find the right kind of professional support that suits you and your baby best when needed.

After giving birth to her daughter in 2018 and having a deeply challenging breastfeeding experience, she became passionate about postpartum support and began to focus her research on the real mother and baby needs postpartum.

    When I found out I was pregnant, my first thought was to contact Kheyrne. There was no one better to answer my questions around pregnancy (from fears, to scans, to homebirth, postpartum..)I would not have made the choices I made and have the homebirth I had if it wasn’t for Kheyrne’s incredible knowledge. I am forever grateful for what she taught my partner and I. I felt so empowered going into labour.

    I read those words somewhere whilst pregnant and they stayed with me. They were so very true for me, Kheyrne came into my life when I most needed her after the birth of our first baby. I was feeling isolated being far away from my family struggling with anxiety and a whole host of confusing, overwhelming emotions. Kheyrne swept in with calm assurance, I wasn’t crazy, I wasn’t alone, I wasn’t a bad mother… She nurtured me from afar and guided me back to my sense of self. My new, Self. It’s hard to explain but her wisdom is ancient, primal, you’re almost gently reminded…. This was my experience; every conversation lit up within me, memories, understanding and a lingering curiosity. I cannot express enough how much her support and guidance has meant to me, I feel supported and connected. Thank you kheyrne for being a safe place.
