who we are

Navigating Parenthood and the postpartum programs are creations of Shari — a semi-crunchy NorCal mom to 3 with a passion for supporting and healing the whole family before birth, in postpartum and years beyond.

Our Complete Postpartum Prep program for expecting parents & Postpartum Healing program for postpartum families were created to give families the tools, support, and resources needed to rock their journey no matter where they live. We're thrilled to help you navigate this thing called parenthood.

our philosophy

Families shouldn't feel isolated and alone in postpartum. We want to eliminate the "I wish I knew" club and create an "Empowered Parents" club isntead. When new (and new again) parents are supported during their transition from expecting & birth to postpartum, the whole family succeeds on the long-haul journey.

Wonderful Way to Connect with Baby

I highly recommend the baby/infant massage class! It is a wonderful way to connect with your baby while learning comforting techniques and helpful ways to treat gas and colic. Shari is a FANTASTIC teacher, I really like how easily she presents the information. —Maria Moulton-Lopez

Saved My Sanity

This baby massage class saved my sanity many nights. I learned techniques to help calm my baby down — especially when she is gassy. You even learn to ask your baby permission to touch them and they learn that no one can touch them unless asked. Shari has nothing but love and respect for her clients. To me, it's a priceless gift you give your child. I had serious postpartum depression and trouble bonding with my child. This helped me through that and I am forever thankful. This was my 3rd baby and I didn't have it with the others so the feelings were new to me and I didn't know or understand why I couldn't bond with my child. I used her techniques to help me bond and bring joy back to my life. — Lisa Cabano

Found Confidence as a Mother

Shari was amazing as a postpartum doula and infant massage instructor and her overall support helped me find a greater sense of confidence in my role as a mother. I met her when my baby was around 2 months old and as a new parent, I wish I had known about her and her services while I was still expecting. — Jennifer Merritt

Great Prep Program

It was great to get a better understanding of what may be coming my way postpartum. From body changes to relationships, I feel more prepared than I did beforehand. — Molly Robertson
