Blossom & Bee
Mama & Me Circle

"It takes a village to raise a child. It also takes a village to raise a mother. We're in a moment of cultural purgatory where we recognize that we need more than we thought we did. In this gap, we must call more wise women, more support, and in so doing, know that we are repairing the fabric, changing the world our children will inherit."
- Kimberly Ann Johnson

Book A Discovery Call

Our mission is to “nurture the nurturer”, through revolutionary community wellness, inspiring revitalized ways of living and to cherish the heART of motherhood.

"Caregivers are the most undervalued people in the world, let's change that together." Kerry Ingram.

There are 3 pillars to the Family Soul-ution

Holistic Child Development


Inner Work

There is a metamorphosis,

that takes place as we go through the portal to become a Mother, a time known as Matrescence.
Embracing the concept of “re-villaging,” we aim to elevate and enrich our community and culture at large, by being the antidote to exhausted, overworked, overwhelmed, isolated/lonely caregivers.


We treat our time together as ceremony,

honoring our physiologic, psychologic and spiritual needs. Collectively, we can shift our cultural norm, remembering the importance of protecting and preserving the sanctity of our parenting journey
and early childhood. Where infants and mothers are met with dignity and respect. Babies are not only welcomed but encouraged. There are not many spaces in AVL where this is true. We discuss Mama-centered content but always baby-led focus.

You will be nurtured during your time with us,

You will leave feeling a deeper sense of peace, connection, insight and hope. You will receive a traditionally prepared, nutrient dense meal, warm infusions, and elixirs.

We weave together ancestral wisdom from global traditions with modern applications that are practical, tangible, simple and inexpensive.

We will discuss how this traditional wisdom correlates to evidence based-science. Each session you may receive loving touch, meditative techniques or frequency healing.

We encourage the use of health-promoting tools, available for group-self care. Each week there will be demonstrations on embodiment practices to help soothe our nervous systems and techniques to help us become more present, patient and playful.

I send out inspirations each week with additional (optional) resources.

This is an opportunity to build community

longing for meaningful connections in order to create a sisterhood, a union, a care-team. Creating a series is intentional so that we can create deeper bonds.

Your sharing/contributions will impact us collectively. We honor your story, voice, experiences, questions and concerns. Postpartum depletion/dis-ease/disappointment is an epidemic in our country.

We all know healers and resources in our city that we will recommend to each other. It takes a village and that is why this is COMMUNITY SUPPORTED postpartum care.

The health and vitality of the MOTHER equals the health of all of our future generations.-Rachelle of Innate Traditions.

"Ashley "Mama Yum" would come over a few times a week for a few hours. She would bring me the most nutritional and healthy food, she would give me tinctures, she would pray over me, she would listen to me, we would draw cards, she would massage me. She helped massage my stomach when I was so constipated from all the pain meds. She was an angel. And became more like a sister. Her knowledge was and continues to be inspiring. Of course I paid for her services, but I would have paid double. It was absolutely priceless. All the while I was falling deeper in love with my son. She is still my go to for child/mother questions, and will forever be a soul sister and a touchstone for me. "


" Wow. The tumor is definitely smaller. And feels very, very different to the touch! As soon as I saw my daughter, the energy between us was waayyyy different. She has been more lovey-dovey and it feels so easy between us. That was absolutely amazing work. I feel the difference definitely!!!! Hard to put into words but I am very, very grateful. The Theta session was instrumental on helping me get back on track."


"  I was remembering back to last year at this time, andfeeling lots of heart warmth and gratitude "You were also a wealth of information, knowledge and traditional wisdom about nurturing, holistic postpartum care, as, for example, you helped P adjust to new motherhood and brought in a colleague to help advise with lactation issues she was experiencing. And you also suggested P have an in-home session pre-birth with a specialist who helped P physically prepare for the birthing experience—I was amazed at what P learned, and I believe it contributed to the short amount of time P spent pushing before A arrived on the scene! Your devoted care of P and A last year was truly extraordinary. You prepared and brought wonderfully nourishing foods for P. You gently massaged her belly to put her in a relaxed state and speed the healing process, and you had many great recommendations for P’s further physical healing.  You are an amazing postpartum practitioner, Ashley. I am in awe of everything you did for us, and especially for P’s and A’s first precious postpartum weeks together. Your love and care were foundational to giving our family the most precious start on their journey as a new, young family. Words cannot really express my deep gratitude to you for all you did for us last year in those early weeks. I learned so much from you about how to be a supportive grandparent, even though that was not your mission. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤️"

Client Name

"I attended a mama’s/women’s retreat afternoon that was facilitated by Ashley. I have attended many women’s circles over the years, and this was by far the most beautifully and thoughtfully organized. I am beyond grateful to Ashley and co-facilitator Jess for creating a safe and soulful container for us all to express, connect, explore, and integrate in community with one another. The somatic and self-reflection exercises that Ashley lead us through taught me new skills to support me in processing and regulating my own emotions so that I can show up as a more whole-hearted and embodied woman for myself, my family, and my community. "


"If you are searching for real magic, wondering how to "do the work", or looking for ways to get out of negative patterns and loops in your life, it is here. Ashley is so knowledgeable, intuitive, and nurturing in her guidance and presence. She generously offers new ways of being. I have seen real shifts in my energy and reflected in my life from just one session."


"Mama is officially outside of her most tender 2 week window and let me tell you.....I feel amazing! My bleeding is gone, my energy levels are up, my hormones feel stable and I can quickly feel my body gaining strength each day. Without a doubt, I contribute this to a very strict postpartum plan I developed and that care that I have received. A very special shout out to my postpartum practitioner Ashley of Raising Our Rootz who has poured so much love and energy into me. Her tender, loving care and my complete gratitude can not be put into words."

"Ashley is a divine human being. I felt deeply cared for and nurtured by her during our Theta Healing session. Deeply intuitive and insightful into the deeper patterns I am working with and helping remove blocks in my life to live my full potential. I highly recommend her for Theta Healing and for any workshop she offers. She is a gift to the world and all she touches."
