Motherhood, Your Way™

Every mother deserves to feel empowered and supported during the childbearing year. How, with whom and where she gives birth is a very personal decision. Having a guide for the journey can be invaluable for both mother and family.

Birth is a transformation that requires being held and free to make choices

Mothers and babies are wise

In a similar way, breastfeeding is unique to every mother and baby. For some mothers who choose to breastfeed, there can be unexpected challenges along the way. Even though breastfeeding is natural, it is a learned skill. Getting the right help in the beginning can make all the difference.

Learning how to latch can take time… that’s normal

You can do everything right and baby might still have trouble

Ask for help and remember you can always begin again

Mamatrice offers childbearing women full-spectrum, integrative support services, including doula/monitrice care, lactation consultations and tending the postpartum during the first forty days. This creates a safety nest of support as a complement to the birth provider. We are currently seeing mothers in person and will accompany you to your place of birth. The monitrice service is in home only and is intended for early/active labor. Virtual doula and lactation services are also available.

There is no one size fits all for motherhood…
every mother and baby is unique

In addition, Jungian life coaching services are now being offered for anyone who is interested in exploring shadow work, mindset, archetypal patterns and dreams, with a specialized focus on the mother archetype. This unique approach can be especially helpful for optimizing fertility, working with creative blocks, during pregnancy, transforming prior loss or birth trauma, preparing for birth, integrating birth, the foster/adoption journey and creating new patterns for motherhood. It also extends beyond the realm of childbearing to any creative endeavor you gestate, give birth to and nourish in the world.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” ― C.G. Jung
