Expert planning help for creating the ultimate postpartum self-care plan!

Are you anxious about your postpartum recovery?

Have you heard stories about long sleepless nights with a newborn?

Perhaps you had a difficult 4th trimester with your first baby and want to avoid that again?

…Or maybe you’re just a planner… and you’d like to plan for a RELAXING and PEACEFUL Postpartum “Baby-Moon” and fall madly in love with your new baby!

Who wouldn’t want that, right?!!

Instead of being stressed out or exhausted after giving birth, this course will get you ready to be spoiled and pampered while snuggling and bonding with your newborn…

If you want to enjoy your newborn and have a restful and peaceful postpartum recovery, I can show you how!

Unfortunately, many women are blind-sided by the challenges of their postpartum recovery and life with a newborn.

They simply are not prepared.

Are You Postpartum Ready?

Maybe you’ve already planned for the birth, bought baby supplies and even decorated the nursery…

but don’t forget the most important planning of all….

… Postpartum self-care!

Instead of having a good self-care plan, many new mamas find themselves “winging it” and consequently lacking …HELP… SLEEP… and JOY…

But, it doesn’t have to be that way!

It’s the Ultimate Postpartum Self-Care Planning Course!

I’ll help you to complete and customize the perfect postpartum plan during your pregnancy, so that when baby arrives, you and your partner can just push

You deserve to be pampered and spoiled after giving birth

Your body is accomplishing an AMAZING thing by growing and birthing a baby human!

After your baby’s birth, you will still have 6-8 weeks of recovery and adjustment ahead of you. Don’t take this time lightly and give yourself permission to really rest, bond with your baby and EMBRACE the 4th trimester.

I’ll show you step-by-step just how to do that…


This course comes with a 28-page printable planning workbook that includes planning sheets, “to-do” checklists, recipes, shopping lists, and even door signs…

The comprehensive planning e-workbook also includes thoughtful pre-baby reflection questions to help you and your partner identify and communicate your goals, expectations, concerns and wishes about life with a newborn.

You’ll also get an emotional self-care checklist and risk assessment tool for managing your emotional and mental health during pregnancy and postpartum recovery.

“This course blessed me. The checklists and questions really helped me to be just as intentional in preparing for a third baby as my first two and not just relying on what I remember from my previous experiences years ago.” – Renee, South St. Paul, MN

“Well, my baby girl is 4 months old now & I can say that the newborn time was not a crazy sleepless experience but an incredibly sweet & cuddly experience!!! I followed your plan for resting and by doing that I didn’t feel the stress and pressure of my house calling to me. Instead, I got to spend time preciously soaking up my newborn in her snuggles & sweetness. I just wanted to thank you for giving me vision for what that time should look like postpartum. The fruit from doing it was so sweet!!” – Katelyn, USA
