  • Trust me, I get it.

    I'm Maranda, founder of Postpartum University. And this is my deeply personal journey.

    Read my story by clicking on the arrows.

  • Nearly 15 years ago after having my first baby, I entered the postpartum phase filled with severe depression, anxiety, and uncontrolled rage.

    Two kids later, I was a queen at recieving diagnosis. My list included postpartum autoimmune disease (ulcerative colitis), hyperthyriodism, 52 food allergies, and postpartum bi-polar.


  • The intensity of my postpartum experiences left me feeling like I was teetering on the edge of death. I even found myself writing my will and leaving journals for each of my children, fearing I wouldn't survive this ordeal.

     Everyone around me, including my healthcare providers, assured me that what I was going through was a normal part of motherhood. But I knew deep down that something was terribly wrong. My intuition drove me to research postpartum care, and what I discovered was alarming.





  •     - More than 30% of women in the postpartum period are diagnosed with mental health disorders, and the rates are rising.
    - Women face a 28% increased risk of developing postpartum autoimmune diseases within the first year after giving birth.
    - Suicide is the second leading cause of death of mothers after birth.

    It was evident that a global epidemic and human health crisis were clearly happening. And not a soul seemed to be doing anything about it.     

  • This realization became my mission:

    to ensure that other mothers would never have to endure what I faced. I spent the next few years in trial-and-error healing my body.  I pursued multiple certifications and degrees, including multiple Childbirth Educator certifications, Pre and Post Natal Fitness Instructor, Pre and Post Natal Nutrition Specialist, and Perinatal Mental Health Specialist.



  • I combined my knowledge and background in biology with my newfound credentials and passion to help women navigate their postpartum journey with more support and understanding.

    I witnessed a profound transformation. And my clients were also THRIVING.

    On top of that, I experienced an amazing fourth postpartum experience.This time, I had the right knowledge, practical tools, and support, and I was met with a sense of empowerment, well-being, and deep healing that I had never known before.




  • With this newfound wisdom and passion, I founded Postpartum University®, a platform dedicated to empowering others to embrace whole-body healing without having to endure trial and error, waste money on irrelevant trainings, or feel isolated in their journey. Our community of postpartum practitioners support each other, ensuring no one feels alone in their pursuit of transformative postpartum care.

The Postpartum University® All Access Pass exists to equip providers with the best tools, resources, and connections...
So they can help women reclaim postpartum (all while healing and growing their practice).

Let's be honest, you're here because you want to make a difference.

The health of our world is based on the health of its mothers.

Mothers in the sacred postpartum need conscious care, whole-body support, and practical wisdom that will set them up for a life-time of success.

And they come to you as a provider, someone they trust, for this care.

Our world is at a critical turning point. And it isn't going to change unless you have the right tools, support, and, dare I say, business success.

If you're a midwife, doula, nutritionist, lactation provider, doctor, coach, chiropractor, counselor, or any other professional that directly provides support to postpartum women and families... this is for you!
We Do Postpartum Differently.
Frustrated with the lack of care and support in the industry, we're changing the narrative.
We not only prioritize a holistic whole-body approach that empowers women, but we also deeply value YOUR health, education, and growth.
38% of providers report secondary trauma due to witnessing poor maternal treatment and care.
The perinatal field has been labeled the second leading least evidence-based medical field in the United States.
Over 80% of providers feel they lack postpartum-specific training that extends beyond acute or emergency care.
The mainstream medical practices prioritize science and money over individual care and common sense, overlooking the holistic needs of mothers.
And it's destroying mothers, families, and entire communities.
Rather than follow current failing standards of care, we follow Mama Thrive™️, where whole body health includes nourishment, lifestyle changes, female rhythms and cycles, and nervous system health interweave.

This is Conscious Care.

Together, we're redefining postpartum care, putting women first, and revolutionizing the industry for a healthier, happier postpartum journey.
