A doula, also known as a birth companion, birth coach or post-birth supporter, is a non-medical person who assists a woman before, during, or after childbirth, to provide emotional support and physical help if needed. They also may provide support to the mother’s partner and family.

Placenta encapsulation is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been steamed, dehydrated, ground, and placed into pills. Traditionally, this is taken by the mother and is believed to impart numerous health benefits, many mothers that reported they have experienced more energy, reduction of baby blue and depression, faster healing, clearer skin, increased milk supply ( if breastfeeding ) and no mood swings.

Babywearing is the ancient tradition of carrying infants and young children in a piece of cloth known as a sling, which allows the wearer to carry on with daily tasks while keeping young children conveniently and safely close.

Maya Abdominal massage address position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs.
