Prenatal and Postpartum Doula Support for Los Angeles, CA

The transition from maiden to mother is the greatest initiation a woman can go through. It is an invitation to reset and recalibrate. Inanna Care provides easy to implement tools and support in these journeys to optimize your health during pregnancy into postpartum. I bridge nutritional science and Ayurveda to aid the recovery of the mother, to avoid postpartum depletion, balance hormones, and stimulate the breast milk through nutrition plans, meals and herbal infusions.  I offer abhyanga massages to calm the nervous system with home made oils. I also bring in soothing techniques from herbal baths to aroma's, from replenishing infusions to healing pads and sitz baths for vaginal healing, in order to create a space for connecting. Moreover,

”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  

Susan was the best postpartum support I could get! I would highly recommend her to anyone, who likes to approach early motherhood in a holistic way. Unlike most Doulas, Susan really focuses on healing the body, mind & soul. With her unique Ayurvedic techniques, meals and infusions, she helped me recover from birth very quickly. She’s a good listener and right after our first day, she felt like an old friend! I learned a lot about breastfeeding, diet and alternative healing methods. Her presence is refreshing and comforting, and my husband and I loved having Susan around and support us!

I’m so glad I booked Susan for her Postpartum care! It made a world of difference to have her healing massage, her delicious meals and support during this time. I recommend any woman giving birth to immediately hire Susan. I only wish I would have had her earlier for her services pre and during labor!

— Llysa Rie, Calabasas, Los Angeles, US

Susan truly cares for her clients. She always checked in with me over the 4 weeks she took care of me, making sure I was being well fed, nurtured, listened to and supported. Her food was sooo good and I felt great knowing she was incorporating ancient Ayurvedic wisdom designed for my dosha into the menu. 

Susan also looked out for me emotionally. She offered a kind listening ear and a safe place to cry. She was proactive in finding out information for me that I needed as well as setting up a food train for when she would be stopping work with me.

I highly recommend Susan for postpartum Doula support. She is a gem with skills, knowledge and a huge heart. Gentle, yet strong— exactly the medicine you need for postpartum healing and support during those insanely challenging first few months.

It was really helpful to receive her support on various areas of the postpartum journey, like breastfeeding, colics, herbs, nutrition, my personal healing and on soothing my son. She is a great nutritionist and a gentle massage therapist. She is intuitive and kind-hearted and held space when navigating the postpartum experience. I am so grateful to have met her.
