POSTPARTUM DOULA + CYCLE SUPPORT
We all go through cycles in life. On a micro level, every month is an opportunity to connect, transform and let go. We go through different stages of womanhood: from maiden to mother, from mother to wise woman. Every transition is an invitation to reset and recalibrate. Inanna Care provides support in these journeys - from fertility and menstrual cycles to postpartum and post menopause. My main focus is on postpartum care in which I integrate different traditions to nurture this transformative stage in a woman's life. I hold space and bringing the ritual back to this sacred moment in life are part of this. I am there to support each moment in this process. I offer abyangha massages to calm the nervous system with home made oils. I also bring in soothing techniques from herbal baths to aroma's, from infusions to healing pads, in order to create a space for connecting.
”Birth is a rite of passage of women. Their journey should be honored, their rights should be fiercely protected, and their stories should be shared.” – Marcie Macari

Do you experience any discomfort related to your cycle or suffer from conditions like endometriosis, cysts and fibroids?** In this cycle support program we we will explore the cause and treat the root of the problem. Most often this requires some shifts in lifestyle and diet but I am here to create a gentle transition. This package is also meant for women that want to improve their menstrual cycle, who want to quit with the birth control pill and prepare for pregnancy.
*These sessions take approximately 30 min depending on the situation.
** In case you want to work on conditions like endometriosis, cysts and fibroids we will create a tailor-made package. In Ayurveda the recommended duration for treatment is one month per year you are suffering from the disease. I am also working in collaboration with Kambo practitioners in order to work on deeper emotional and spiritual levels.
"It is hard to express how thankful our family is to have experienced Susan's loving support. In particular, working with Susan allowed me to connect back with my body. Having experienced an induction and cesarean my body felt quite distant like there was a part of my body that felt low and disconnected. During one of our first sessions I felt my body shift into place as if to come back together. Moreover having experienced a difficult birth she helped me process my grief by holding such beautiful and compassionate space. I cannot recommend her enough and look forward to continuing to use her services."

"I found Susan at a time when I was actually suffering for a long time of severe Ulcerative Colitis. I kept on taking higher doses of medication with less and less effects. Susan has helped me so well with her great personality, patience and knowledge. She has always taken the time to listen carefully to my experiences and symptoms, and came up with a clear and well-executable plan that she adjusted based on how I was doing. My symptoms have been incredibly reduced to the point now where I am not taking any medication. My perspective on how the body works has changed. I don’t see myself as a sick person anymore. My body was just temporarily out of balance and I regained this balance again. And I even got pregnant when our 3 month sessions ended. Thank you endlessly dear Susan."

“Supporting a family postpartum requires a very intuitive, balanced and grounded soul — Susan is that and so much more. Her comforting touch of massage allowed my body to release energy from birth and exhale into the recovery phase. She nourished our bodies with delectable warm, healing foods — each meal was filled with love. Susan’s loving support during our most vulnerable period was a key ingredient in navigating the ebb & flow of the postpartum journey with our first born. We are eternally grateful.”

"During the treatments after the delivery, not only my girlfriend could process and release tension, even my daughter became quiet in the other room. It was very nice to get help in this way to make a good start together. "
