Ceremonies & Guidance for times of change

O’Nell is a mother & practitioner who is an expert guide in the complicated & beautiful terrain of the postpartum.


Postpartum Sacred Tending

Each session is crafted for you to pause & orient within the chrysalis of your postpartum time. I create a sanctuary for you to calm your nervous system, ensure optimal healing & prevent postpartum depletion. I weave traditional healing practices to support you as you integrate the deep physical, emotional & spiritual transformation of parenthood. These in-home, retreat-style series of treatments help you feel safe & held in your metamorphosis.

Personalized Ceremony

Honor all that is shifting for you during a customized life transition ceremony. Let us grieve what is lost. Let us acknowledge what is changing. Let us welcome ourselves back home with authenticity & reverence. 

Classes & Consultations

If you’re living a conscious, open-hearted life, you’ll need reflection & encouragement along the way. I’m happy to share my wisdom & skills with you in person or virtually. Topics might include holistic postpartum preparation, ritual-crafting, cervical self-exam & visual arts process. Feel free to pick my brain & search my heart. I’d love to be on your team cheering you on!

May you awaken to the mystery of being here and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence.

May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.

May you receive great encouragement when new frontiers beckon.

May you respond to the call of your gift and find the courage to follow its path.

“If every mother in the world could have an O’Nell by their side after having a baby there is no doubt in my mind the world would be a better place. O’Nell is a beautiful blend of deep knowledge and very practical support while also whisking a new mom up in a warmth and security that truly is a blessing. She will always be a special part of my story – coming into my own as a mom of two. She is pure magic and so warm and accepting. "

“Thank you so much for taking care of me & us as a family during the initial postpartum time. The love and intention you put into every detail was deeply felt and received. So grateful to you for the work you provide in our community."

“Yesterday was seriously magical. It was the first time I could really drop into my body and integrate the birthing work it did just over a week ago. We are so honored and blessed to know you and have you be a part of our journey. I really can’t thank you enough. I will deeply treasure the entire experience with you. You are amazing! "
