Why is this membership so unique and valuable?
in this new world we are living in, connection is more important than ever. But as we know it's hard given how limited in person resources have become. This online group offers women who are navigating the turbulent waters of the post partum journey, incredible connection and support. There is nothing worse than feeling like you are alone in this journey, and with this group you will NEVER feel that way!
Through our twice monthly zoom calls we offer both connection with other women going through the same thing but also education. For example, you can watch all the videos in the world on breast feeding before you have your baby, but it's not until you're IN IT, do you realize how many questions you still have. The invaluable knowledge gained from our industry experts, coupled with the knowledge shared among the members is truly magic!
We are so proud to be collaborating with some incredible women and organizations, all of whom are experts in their respective fields. See below for a detailed list of the various resources this post partum membership is fortunate enough to tap into offering our members a robust platform of support. We are also very excited to offer discount codes for additional resources from many of these experts listed and more!

MEET YOUR FRIENDS NEXT DOOR
(WHO ALSO HAPPEN TO BE AN OB-GYN AND A COACH)
Hey there, I'm Shieva Ghofrany (@biglovefiercejuju) and I've been an OBGYN since 1999. I've teamed together with Jenny Hayes Edwards (@salt_water_wellness), an Integrative Nutrition Health coach who also just went through a pregnancy. together we formed TRIBE CALLED V (@tribecalledv) and created the my OB & ME pregnancy program. Now we've had countless women "graduate" from our pregnancy program and still wanting more. So we decided to create the post partum membership! We hope you'll join us!
This is why we've created the post-partum membership...
Our mission started by creating our pregnancy program and membership. But as things go, women eventually started "graduating" from the pregnancy portion of things and began asking us for more! And just like that we listened! We launched the post-partum membership in the Fall of 2021 and we are so excited to have you join us!
Post-partum anxiety be gone!!
it's 3 am and you're alone in your dark nursery, struggling to feed your baby, feeling like you must be the person in the world awake right now ....
...or your baby just had a blow out, you're going on the fourth outfit change of the day and you have vomit in your hair and you're wondering how others deal ...
...or you are overwhelmed by all the resources, have five books on your bedside table on how to get your baby to sleep, but are too tired to read any of them...
YES WE GET IT, AND GIRL WE GOT YOU...
During this post partum time there is nothing more important than connection...
our private virtual group is meant to facilitate and forge community among women - because we know that when women engage, encourage and empathize with each other, magic happens.
WE ARE SO READY TO SUPPORT YOU!!
Let's face it, this whole raising a human thing is hard. Especially now that our world is a little more isolated than it used to be. And even though we may be coming out of the height of this pandemic, there is one thing that has become abundantly clear. We need a tribe. In the history of forever, children were raised (literally) by a village. We were not designed or meant to do this alone. And there is NO shame is realizing you need help and support. Unless you are the rare unicorn that has NOT found herself crying at 3am in a dark nursery, we've all been there and we are here to support YOU! Lets make this post-partum journey the best it can be! -Jenny
"Through my decades of being an OBGYN, what I know to be true is that women love to engage and better understand their bodies.
I believe that we can enhance our knowledge by collaborating with other women while still having the guidance of a professional. this helps filter out the noise which is our ultimate goal at TRIBE CALLED V"
