WombPdx  

I want to start a revolution.

What if empowered and informed women change the focus to receive care during postpartum recovery? Receiving support from family and friends that are wanting to change this time to be healing, instead of wounding. This balance of emotional and physical recovery promotes bonding with parents and baby. Support, and therefore rest, can fundamentally change the transition into parenthood.

WombPdx is a carefully curated list of well practiced professionals to be given as gifts to new parents. There are plenty of things in the world, what about an experience that changes the family dynamic to success during this crucial and vulnerable time.

This kind of care allows body and mind to be rebalanced after the largest hormone disruptor that exists in the human body.

Women can register to let friends and family know what would really be a benefit with a gallery with specific choices. The items listed can be purchased online. A handmade card of who the gifts are from will be sent to new families.

Register when you are pregnant or already in postpartum, whatever you need to do to bring a major life change in focus.

The release of muscle tension relating to back pain and the ability to bring balance to fatigue are basic building blocks of a yoga practice.

With precise movements, nothing will go beyond your capacity giving you the release you need.

Postpartum Acupunture  

This modality can help ease your tight muscles and regulate your hormones, but it can also help you reconcile any traumas you might have experienced and any grief you might feel. It can help boost your energy so that you can deal with all you have to do. Acupuncture is also used to help boost milk production, and ease the flow of milk so that you are less prone to clogged ducts and mastitis.

I treat a wide variety of postpartum issues, including:

  • mastitis

  • low milk supply

  • C-section scar therapy

  • night sweats

  • postpartum depression and anxiety

  • body pain

  • menstrual issues

  • birth trauma recovery

  • autoimmune conditions.


Acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutrition can be key factors in helping you heal. They help you build energy, get out of pain, and increase your milk supply.

Abdominal Massage

Pregnancy and birth are a big deal. Whether yours ended in exactly the way you planned or in an unexpected c-section or other emergency, there’s a lot you can do to continue your healing process.

Too often, after women are released from a doctor’s care at six weeks they are left feeling they just have to live with however their body feels at that time. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

It’s very common for women to feel (at any time after their pregnancy):

  • abdominal and/or pelvic pains

  • scar numbness and pain (often at the same time)

  • pain at the pubic bone (pubic symphysis)

  • significant urinary changes (no urgency, to over urgency, to painful urination)

  • hardness of the belly, bloating, or swelling

  • abdominal separation (diastasis)

  • and more


A session with Isabel includes a full intake to understand how your belly and pelvis are needing support during your recovery.

Postpartum CBD Gift Box

Scientific research shows chronic aliments such as arthritis can be treated successfully with CBD. In some cases issues being treated by pharmaceuticals do not treat pain effectively.

Soaking salts returns body to balance. A relaxed body creates an environment of rest, which in turn leads to better sleeping patterns.

CBD oils and lotions can be applied to sore muscles directly, such as shoulders, greatly reducing tension.

Muscles work as a system, one part of your back hurts, other muscles then need to compensate. Tension will then start to build on itself, creating increased pain throughout more of your body.

Endocannabinoids have a major role in our nervous system. Affecting a variety of functions including sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response, CBD regulates these receptors and reduces inflammation.
