Postpartum Care

Certified Innate Traditions Postpartum Care Provider. Cultures from every part of the globe recognize that properly caring for a new mother in the first 6 weeks, known as the 4th trimester, is ESSENTIAL and not a luxury.

Book A Discovery Call

After birthing, we have a “golden opportunity” to increase our health and vitality. However, American culture does not prioritize postpartum care, which leads new mothers feeling overwhelmed, depleted and exhausted.

In Western society, when we hear the word “postpartum”, we often misinterpret it with negative associations and pathology, linking the term to peri-natal mood disorders like “depression”.

On the contrary, "postpartum" is any time after you have had a pregnancy and is lifelong. One does not cease to stop needing support after the fourth trimester, or after the first year or even after the first 3 years.

My work ensures you will be supported in every way to safeguard you and
your family’s blossoming. In developing my approach, I combine 20 years as a professional in the Healing Arts and 13 years as a Certified Early Childhood Teacher, specializing in holistic child development, with 5 years as a Certified Postpartum and Ayurvedic Practitioner with over 350 hrs of training/mentorship.

I am trained to go over and beyond the role of a doula, to support the mother/baby’s physiologic, psychologic and spiritual needs. My teacher Rachel Garcia Seliga is a force on this earth. Please enjoy her wisdom and resources

24 hour package is wonderful because it creates space for
prenatal care which is very important.

It allows me to attend to your needs over two 3 hour sessions in the first 2 critical weeks
and then once a week for the following 4 weeks so you have in-home support for
the Entirety of the Golden Month.

Rates do not include the cost for the majority of meals, but do include all dried and fresh herbs, many veggies from my garden, remedies, infusions, oils, apothecary items and a variety of other supplies. There is an option to purchase staples in advance or I will do the shopping and supply receipt for reimbursement.

I am available by phone, text and email as often as you need me
and any and all questions are honored.

I do nearly all of my prep work at home and spend countless hours researching/connecting you with resources as things come up. I do not charge for this as added time, so what could be considered an hourly rate, is actually much, much less than you are paying for. All in all, you will not be able to find anyone with more dedication to your family or a more reasonable price point. I am committed to being a resource for all your mothering and developmental needs.


"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."
