A Note About Covid-19: I'm Still Here For You!
As of September 2020, I began to offer in-person services once again, with a limited client number capacity and safety precautions in place. I am also fully vaccinated/boosted, and still continue to use masks in clients' homes upon request. However, each of my in-person services has a discounted remote service equivalent - ideal for families who are uncomfortable with in-person sessions during this unusual time. Please contact me for more information about these remote service options.
Don't let these uncertain times keep you from the postpartum experience and support you deserve.
Congratulations on your upcoming birth!
I'm Andrea. Nice to meet you!
Through Upon Arrival, I take a worldly, natural approach to childbirth and the postpartum period to help my clients slow down and focus on the holistic and intuitive aspects of maternal care. I specialize in "mothering the new mother" by providing healing meals, emotional wellness & self care offerings, and calming support to gently guide her through the life-changing experience of the early postpartum period. I will do my best each day to "work myself out of the job," making sure that Upon Arrival’s postpartum care helps my clients to feel supported, comforted, well rested, well fed, and confident in their parenting abilities, intuition, and instinct - fully prepared and ready for their “new normal.” Many women plan for the birth of a baby - but what about the birth of a mother? I am a firm believer in holding space for this sacred time and keeping it as peaceful as possible.
While I provide practical support and local resources, I am also trained in Ayurvedic postpartum care as well as other holistically-focused childbirth recovery practices. I specialize on utilizing the healing properties of nutritious meals with my clients, featuring warming ingredients in recipes that are designed specifically for postpartum recovery. I also arrange comfortable environments within the home to maximize relaxation, provide opportunities for rest and self-care, and creating a calming and supportive space where my clients can feel free to talk, ask questions, and learn about their unique parenting style. Feeding my clients, supporting them in shifting their mindsets to set themselves up for success, helping them to gain insight and learn to trust in their own parenting intuition, guiding them in activities designed to facilitate the processing of their experiences, and teaching them self-care practices to maximize the peace and joy they find in this sacred time are some of my favorite parts of this vocation.
I'm here to help nurture, nourish, and restore your body, mind, and home to create your very own peaceful postpartum!
"The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new."
"We had a lovely experience with Andrea as our postpartum doula. She was helpful, caring, and attentive to our needs as first time parents. Andrea is a mother of three and soon to be four children, and with that comes a wealth of experience and suggestions that have been incredibly helpful to us. I would recommend and refer Andrea to friends and family."
