In addition to supporting the emotional and mental health of moms, moms-to-be, helpers, and healers, we need support from other angles as well. Our problems don’t live in a vacuum. Please support yourself from all angles, building yourself a solid team from whom you trust. Here are some members or resources in the Asheville community I personally know, trust, and recommend.
Co-owned by local doulas Carrie Hike and Rachel Ansari, the Mothership has a wealth of resources for soon-to-be moms and new moms in particular. Their services include: birth doula, sleep consulting, overnight baby care, and breastfeeding/bottle feeding support. **Note**Their FREE New Mama support group runs on Tuesdays from 11am-12pm and is an incredibly supportive space to talk about anything you’re experiencing.
Another Asheville staple for all things pregnancy and postpartum. Homegrown babies offers birth doula support, pre-natal and postpartum yoga classes, childbirth education classes, and several FREE support groups including Moving Mamas (a walking group), and perinatal loss.
