Metro Detroit Preferred Providers

by Elise Bowerman

{updated 6/5/21}

More pregnancy, birthing and caring for a newborn resources here.

At Sweet Momma Yoga we know (from personal experience) it takes a village to raise a healthy family. And when we say 'healthy' we mean balancing the stressors of being human: parenting, career and social pressures, dynamics in family life, etc. Our whole being is constantly seeking to create or sustain harmony in body, mind, and spirit. 

Sometimes we have to pay for our village in order to receive the care we need to be balanced. We are blessed to have many professionals we can call upon!

Remember: everyone works for you. You interview and hire. Start today.

When contacting the care professionals (below) be sure to share you're pregnant or postpartum AND you're referred by Sweet Momma Yoga.

Some of the businesses and professionals offer multiple services (i.e. midwife + doula + lactation consulting.) They will be listed once, so be sure to visit their website or social media pages to gather a complete list of services.

I’ve participated in Sweet Momma Yoga during both of my pregnancies and have benefited each time. Even on days when I feel tired and just wanted to put my feet up, I always felt better after class knowing that I am taking the best care of myself and my baby. Elise does an amazing job of making all of the moms feel welcome and comfortable no matter what previous yoga experience they’ve had. I got more out of Sweet Momma Yoga than I ever expected, benefiting both my pregnancy and birthing experiences. I would recommend them to any expecting momma! - Deidre L.
Sweet Momma Yoga got me out of my new-mom shell with Mama + Baby yoga! It combined a part of myself that I already loved and was comfortable with, with a completely new territory of being a mom on maternity leave during a Michigan winter. The bonding experience with my son is one I will never forget, and I was also able to take care of myself and my needs, which was the first opportunity I had to learn about balance in my new role as momma! I am so grateful for Elise’s compassion and casual nature. She put me at ease during a time in my life when I needed it most! - Kelli S.
