Southeast Michigan Preferred Providers

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 balance in body, mind, and spirit. 

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

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

When contacting the care professionals (below) be sure to share you're pregnant or postpartum AND you're referred by your instructor's name.

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 their complete list of services.
