There’s something you need to know…

The postpartum years have been greatly misunderstood.

We’ve been conditioned to believe that dysfunction, dis-ease, and dis-regulation are a normal part of motherhood.

WHY is this happening?

  • Why are so many women struggling with mental health and autoimmune diseases?
  • Why are we and our mothers and providers not being taught this information?
  • And most importantly, how can we heal and prevent this in the first place?

We support evidence-based practice, traditional and ancestral care, and women’s wisdom. We believe that in order to experience deep health and healing in the years postpartum, providers will have to change how they approach postpartum care.

Postpartum University® has been recognized as the “leading postpartum resource” for Professionals and Experts in the field.

Currently, Postpartum University® has served thousands of mothers and providers in over 35 countries.

Known as the only education facility dedicated to postpartum WHOLE body health and well-being that extends beyond maternal mental health.
