Postpartum Doula Care Description
and Supplies List
Thank you for trusting me to care for you during this transformative time! During my postpartum
visits, I will make you a nutritive pot of postpartum tea, give you a baño (herbal slap bath), sobada,
and cerrada de caderas. I make you two caldos, and a big pot of Mexican atole. My visits take four
hours maximum, for three days in a row, beginning directly after birth. Then, on your cuarentena
(40th day postpartum), I will perform the ritual cerrada de caderas (hip closing), for the last time, and
acomodar la matriz (uterine massage and adjustment). If you have dietary requests, questions, or
additional needs, I am here for you. The following is a list of key items I will use:
For sitz bath
These recipes are great! Choose one, go with the flow, or mix and match.
Amor- (4-8oz of each) Comfrey; yarrow; calendula; plantain; and Himalayan salt (9oz). Optional: 1
lemon, 1 orange
Alma Mexicana- Ruda, eucalipto, romero, hojas de aguacate (my grandmother, Alma’s Recipe).
Soups
Healing soups are the best first foods postpartum.
Seasonal: Greens; vegetables; protein; fresh herbs, organic meats (optional), and organic, grass-fed
joints and marrow bones for making healing bone broth.
Afterbirth Tea
Cleanses your entire body, primarily your womb. Enhances vitality, healing, relaxation, and bonding.
Fresh ginger root (4 large roots)
Three big bundles of cinnamon sticks
3 oranges
3 lemons
8oz of Red Raspberry Leaf tea

Raw, organic honey (6lbs)
