Postpartum Care

Creating a nurturing space for a peaceful and empowered birth

Rachel Varela Taos Mountain Doula Birth Coach

We will visit you at home within 24 hours of birth to help with the integration process.

Postpartum care can include warming techniques such as moxabustion, sitz baths, yoni steams, body work, nourishing food preparation, herbal therapy, nursing support and time honored traditional rituals. 

During the postpartum time we visit you in your home on day 3, day 7, 2 weeks, 4 weeks and finally at 6 weeks in our office, when we offer a ‘closing of the bones ceremony’. 

We provide full spectrum postpartum care for you and your baby and will remain on call for you until six weeks after birth. 

I look forward to working with you and your growing family! 

Please call me, Rachel Mayente-Varela to schedule a free consultation. 

 – Kind Words –

I was skeptical about having a home birth, but instantly felt comfortable when I met Rachel. She is now like a part of the family.

I knew, whatever I needed, she would be able to help, including making us great post-birth meals.

Rachel is a natural; she understands what pregnant mamas need.”
