Class of August 2021 Starts in
“I read books that were great, but they didn’t come with support!! Postpartum I got a lactation consultant, but I would have loved more education about infant feeding prenatally. And with my first babe, I didn’t know where or how to ask for help. Being more of a “lone wolf”, I felt isolated postpartum and didn’t know HOW to connect with other new parents like me. I was nervous. Having a professional to connect with and facilitate that connection with others would have been awesome. I would have LOVED the P4PPC!” – M.F.
Hey, love! I’m Naomi, your Postpartum Power Professor and Courmmunity host! I want to explain who I am, and how I got here, to that AWESOME title.
I’m a queer (happy pride!), witchy and yet science-loving woman with passion for serving, creating, healing, and nature.
Fun fact: my maternal grandmother birthed eleven babies at home with a midwife!
Natural and nutritional healing and wellness have always been central in my maternal lineage.
Being of service to others was so innate. Give, give, give.
Community and family were everything.
So it comes as NO surprise to me that in my heart I knew that would all be part of my path as well.
I am so grateful that I found my way into birth work through midwifery. I became a proud student midwife at Ryerson University (Toronto) in 2014.
I adored the education and soaked it up like a sponge. I identified whole-heartedly with the profession. I would be a practicing midwife by 2019!
Then in my junior placement, something changed…
Although I was PASSIONATE about serving my clients and absolutely loved that aspect, my heart pulled me toward more of a supportive role as opposed to a primary healthcare provider role. In my heart I was a Doula and didn’t realize it.
It wasn’t until I took a break after that placement that the clarity hit me. All the times I suffered in that placement were when I knew a client could have used more support and I couldn’t provide it because of midwifery scope and constraints. I had witnessed firsthand how badly more robust postpartum support and preparation was needed. So a couple months later I became a Postpartum Doula. I have never looked back! I am wholeheartedly fulfilling my calling and on the right path; and for my journey so far (and midwifery) I am SO GRATEFUL!
Since becoming a Postpartum Doula I have worked with such incredible clients; it always blows me away! I’ve also had some pretty incredible other life achievements. . . :
❊ I found my soulmate, and married him in 2018. We make an incredible team and he really helps make it possible for me to be a mompreneur; in the pandemic especially. The preparation work we did prenatally for the postpartum was pivotal, and we still benefit from it.
❊ We co-founded a natural bath product company called New Life Co. which will be re-launching this summer of 2021! We are both passionate about simple, natural and pure wellness (as I’ve already mentioned!)
❊ I became a mother in November 2019 after an incredible homebirth experience that I was hoping and planning for since my midwifery days. Feel free to ask me more about that–I love talking all things birth!
❊ About 4-5 months after the birth I finally obtained my official Postpartum & Infant Care Doula certification that I had worked hard on for a few years! I launched my own postpartum support business called the Postpartum Nest shortly thereafter which has been incredible.
Since I absolutely love my career, at this point I’ve realized that I can do even BETTER for my community. I’m always hungry to do better! I have a passionate appetite.
I consistently hear these common themes come up:
“I wish I had known about this!” “Why didn’t anyone prepare me for this”
“After the birth, they send you on your way with your new baby(ies) and it’s terrifying because I have no clue what to do”, and
“(Mom)-friends, community, and good support is so hard to find these days, ESPECIALLY in the Covid-19 pandemic. It is SO hard to connect with others.”
In my pregnancy I actively sought out some new-parent friends, and didn’t quite find my people. After birth, I was fortunate enough to find one, and then another–all with babes a similar age! Those mamas were pivotal to my well-being as a new mama myself, and I knew I needed to facilitate this for my community as well.
I’ve realized I can really help expectant parents feel more prepared for the postpartum, more supported, more connected–thus improving outcomes, in a big way! There really is no limit with an online learning and community model. I’ve now challenged my ‘making a difference one family at a time’ mantra of the past.
And thus, the Prepare for an emPowered Postpartum Courmmunity is born. I truly hope you love it and share it with anyone you know who is expecting a baby(ies), and I am SO excited to get started!!!
“I absolutely love this initiative. I think it’s necessary. I think any mother would appreciate having a community of support and a professional to go to for help and answers to questions that naturally come up throughout pregnancy and in the postpartum months. I wish I had this while pregnant, especially with my first because I was literally up all night long every night during my pregnancy researching answers to the loads of questions that would bombard my brain. I am a huge advocate of making informed decisions about your health and really believe the course would help to provide knowledge and allow for people to be active participants in their perinatal care. This is a wonderful project that will change many lives and will help many families make informed, intentional decisions about their health in pregnancy and be able to set a great foundation for postpartum.” – M.D.
You’re expecting a baby or multiple, and you know or have heard from the modern-day grapevine that the postpartum period can be–and often is–challenging. Yet you don’t quite know what to expect or how to prepare for it! And honey, the books just aren’t cutting the mustard. And you feel like you want to be connecting with others going through the same thing or who have recently gone through it!

You will learn so much about your options, possibilities, and how to get what you really want out of this experience, with confidence!

Imagine: You're in a pitch black room, and you know there is a door somewhere in that room. That door symbolizes sanity and wellness post-birth. Eventually, by feeling around, you will find the door-- despite obstacles along the way. I believe in you. But imagine how much easier it would be to find the door if there was a little candle by the door, guiding you and making you feel a little less lost and disoriented, and more confident.
