"Erin supported me through the uncertainty of birth, getting in the right mindset and having a comfort measures plan. My husband was so appreciative of her support and experience as well since this was all a first for him too. Erin also helped me in early postpartum days when I really needed some time for self-care and emotional support adjusting to this new reality. "
"I am sooo glad a friend recommended Christine to us. She was an absolutely essential part of my first pregnancy and birth. She seems to have an endless source of comfort and love and knows exactly when to offer it up! At one point during the birth, she was massaging my husband's back while he was massaging me! I can't imagine having gone through the process without her."

I have visited Rooted Family Wellness a handful of times for the different services they offer, and every single time I have had a great experience. Erin and Christine (the owners) are warm and welcoming and make you feel right at home from the second you walk in the door, and I always leave feeling refreshed after receiving excellent service. I also attend the free baby cafe to connect with other moms and their babies. All this to say I highly recommend this place (especially if you are pregnant or on a postpartum journey like myself)!

If you have any concerns or questions, be sure to talk to your doctor, midwife, or reach out to a specialist.
Yoga increases interoception - one’s sense of the internal state of the body. Start by noticing how you feel at different points in your cycle. Are you tired or energized? What symptoms do you have? What makes them better or worse? Tracking your cycles and associated symptoms not only increases your awareness and helps you clearly see patterns, it gives you a baseline of data to see changes over time.
