Mother-centered postpartum care for family wellness

Stephanie Yawa de Wolfe

I was raised in West Africa and come from a Togolese Akposso lineage, where collective care systems and plant-based healing practices are part of the social fabric. I came to postpartum care from intensive study of medical anthropology, social determinants of health, racial health disparities, and structural violence examining how culture and society affect health outcomes and our culture of health As a postpartum care practitioner, I am committed to shifting birth culture. Healing from my own physical and cultural traumas pushed me to embody my belief that a culture of health and healing starts from within the individual. Empowering self-identifying mothers to unlock their own sovereignty, reclaim trust in their bodies and intuition, and build their capacities not just to heal but to thrive is essential to my practice. I also emphasize inclusion of the mother’s community, including her partner, family, and friends, in the knowledge that each of us has something to contribute to postpartum care. As an herbalist and food literacy educator I integrate herbal medicine and food as medicine to support postpartum recovery and lactation, with an emphasis on ancestral heritage diets, anti-inflammatory foods, and nervous system support. 
 
Services I currently offer include postpartum care education and planning, meal planning and postpartum food literacy, herbal formula preparations and ritual guidance (yoni steams, herbal sitz baths, teas), and 1:1 postpartum coaching sessions at any phase of the postpartum journey. Sessions might integrate mindfulness, somatic awareness, spiritual guidance, meditation and energy clearings.
