Let Us Help You Navigate The Postpartum Experience

When we think of motherhood there are so many beautiful moments - from the first time you feel your baby kick in the womb to the first time they wrap their precious fingers around yours to that first send off to Kindergarten and beyond. There is so much excitement and anticipation that happens in those nine months of pregnancy. Then once your bundle of joy arrives it's truly a miracle that your body instinctively knows how to do so many things!

But not everything comes so naturally. It is totally normal to have questions as you navigate both the mental and physical effects of everything from pregnancy to birth to your post partum motherhood experience. Motherhood can sometimes feel so isolating and then other times we're able to find solace in community of other mamas who share wisdom.


Whether you've had a baby in the past two years or are a soon-to-be new mama you may find yourself with questions. Audrey Grunst, MSW & Rachel Miller, PT, DPT (and fellow mamas) partnered together to provide you answers to some of your deepest questions about self-care, safely returning to exercise, how to know if you need to ask for help and more!
