My guest today on “Healthy Births, Happy Babies” is Rachelle Garcia Seliga, mother, wife and Certified Professional Midwife whose work is dedicated to midwifing a cultural shift that honors our innate wisdom, personal authority and the sanctity of Life. She is the creator of INNATE Postpartum Care; a Certification Training for birth and health care professionals based upon postpartum physiology and the primal continuum.

In this episode, we will cover:

  1. how similar the 40 days of ritual post-partum care across the world is and how it can be incorporated into this day and age
  2. how the loss of the ceremonious recognition of the woman’s transition into motherhood contributes to post-partum depression
  3. how women need the traditions of midwifery care and ceremonial work to come back in western prenatal and post-partum care for healthier birth and healthier family life
