Awareness is Healing® Postpartum Care

Section Divider

Your health postpartum is critical to you and your newborn's well-being. Unresolved problems that began during pregnancy or arose following labor and delivery can interfere with your ability to fully embrace new motherhood. We provide an extra layer of support and healing that’s essential to optimal well-being postpartum.

Combining both up-to-date-conventional medical knowledge and the wisdom of Traditional Maya Medicine (proven techniques used by Maya midwives for centuries), we are extensively trained to address many common ailments that occur during postpartum ranging from pelvic floor pain, lactation issues and digestive complaints to emotional struggles like depression and anxiety.


When does postpartum begin and end?

In traditional medicine, the postpartum journey lasts a full year after the birth. During this time, the mother is encouraged to rest and nourish her body and slowly reintegrate into her routine while also adopting new supportive practices.


We define the postpartum period from birth to five years. We chose this longer length of time due to symptoms that persist and may not have been properly addressed or supported for many years, which is often the case in our busy modern world.
