This video story could just as well fit into the pregnancy OR parenting categories, so I'll include it in both! Joanna Linton is a Philly-based mama who recently started Rae's Roots, a pregnancy + postpartum (and beyond) wellness tea line for moms made with traditional Adaptogens and Ayurvedic herbs to help mom's mind and body navigate the inevitable stressors of motherhood.
Although the most central purpose of this site is to connect pregnant people with doulas, Joanna raised such good point in an email to me when she first introduced herself -- "As much as the mental and emotional support of a doula (or lactation consultant) are crucial for expecting and new moms, sometimes it is meaningful to have something tangible to go along with it - and a healing ritual like our teas provide that physical touch as moms navigate this beautiful journey."
So YES -- use babyjawn.com to help find a doula for your birth! But, while you are growing your baby and while you are navigating your early parenting days, take Joanna's sage advice to prioritize self care and well-being by creating rituals that are good for your body and mind. I think you will really enjoy hearing Joanna's story about what led her to create Rae's Roots and you may even want to hurry over to Minnow Lane or the Rae's Root website to grab some tea for yourself or someone you love.
What will you find here? Stories about people just like you, letting you know how they have managed the joys and the anxieties of pregnancy. I'll also feature some of my favorite Philadelphia area professionals who I think may be just the resource you need for your pregnancy journey!
