We offer services to improve your physical health throughout your motherhood journey.
Motherhood can be a challenging time to get the care you need, so we provide wellness services during pregnancy and postpartum in the convenience of your home and community.
Alex is currently providing educational content online only at this time. She and her women’s health partner Kristina are currently working on creating free postpartum recovery guides for moms like you. If you would like to be the first to access the guides, contact Alex to get your guide when it is available (aiming for August 2022).
She is not currently providing physical therapy. You can find a list of other wonderful local providers that do provide physical therapy here.
We know what it’s like to expect that our healthcare system will tell us what we need before and after birth, only to realize that we are actually the best people to determine how we will give birth and what feels right or wrong postpartum.
We believe moms need to be listened to, tended to and respected. We feel that when given the knowledge they need, moms are equipped to make the best decision for themselves and their families.
Providing these things take time. Time that is sometimes not available in our current healthcare system, unfortunately.
We have seen moms benefit from:
- education on how to safely exercise during pregnancy
- learning that their bodies are capable of giving birth and ways to support their bodies and reduce risk of injuries
- more than a single, rushed visit postpartum
- Other countries provide this as a standard of care, so we are taking a bold step to help provide more support postpartum.
So we have pursued training in obstetrics and pregnancy and postpartum topics to make sure that moms who want these options can have them.
Alex is here to support you as you gain knowledge and confidence in your voice, your body and your abilities throughout your motherhood journey.
