WombPdx  

We want families to be well taken care of during the transition into parenthood, maybe as gifts we already have things?

A lot is taken from a mothers health during childbirth, and more taken after birth. Issues that arise can create a lot of stress. This postpartum environment will lay the foundation for the next year. Why let mothers struggle alone? Mother's have important work to do!

Mothers can register to let friends and family know what would really be a benefit, or just pick whatever you like for yourself of buy it for a loved one. I will send a special card for a gift.

WombPdx has done the research for you and curated specific services to help you with these challenges. Continue on to learn more.

And Ready Set Grow 

The release of muscle tension relating to back pain, bringing balance to fatigue, are basic building blocks of a yoga practice. With experienced instruction the worry of causing more pain to muscle tissue is obsolete. 

Diastisis Recti, Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction (PSD), or any other pregnancy or birth related issues, can be relived by practicing regularly on your own (with correct technique reminders).

Diastisis Recti: Abdominal muscles are relaxed because of hormones allowing expansion and cannot always get back to a normal level of function on their own. Things like crunches, sit-ups, pushups, and front planks, make abdominal separation worse. 

PXD: The hormone relaxin stretches ligaments in your pubic region. This will cause instability and pain in the pelvic joint. The severity of symptoms varies from mild discomfort to severely debilitating pain.

Therapeutic PostPartum Massage. 

Alice Palmeri

Massage helps regulate stress hormones and promotes endorphins. Having more balanced hormones can help new mothers avoid postpartum mood fluctuations.

The common signs of thyroid hormonal imbalances after pregnancy are:

  • Extreme fatigue:

  • Mood swings and anxiety:

  • Insomnia:

  • Postpartum distress syndrome:

You can expect a variety of massage techniques. Issues such as prolapsed uterine lining and bladder are very common is some mothers. Decrease in bladder control can take years to return to normal without steps following birth.

Postpartum Acupunture  

Solstice Natural Health

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 can also be 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

Isabel Spradlin

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.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy 

Prime Vital Health

CST is noninvasive. It uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve the stress and pain caused by compression in the bones of the head, sacrum, and spinal column.

It’s thought that through the gentle manipulation of the bones in the skull, spine, and pelvis, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system can be normalized. This removes “blockages” from the normal flow, which enhances the body’s ability to heal.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BDCST) is a gentle approach to whole body health that focuses on the nervous system.

Eli is able to evoke change that is both gentle and profound - an invaluable resource for pregnant and postpartum women.
