Shelley Rahim

She is a seasoned Postpartum Caregiver, Postpartum Chef and Birth Doula, committed to nurturing mothers, babies and families since 2007. My mission is to ensure that mothers embark on their journey into motherhood feeling cherished, well-nourished and cared for. Shelley draws inspiration from her 30-year journey learning how to cook Ayurvedic cuisine passed down through generations by her Pakistani mother-in-law. Advanced certifications in Ayurvedic Postpartum Care from The Center for Sacred Window Studies beautifully complement her culinary expertise. 

Shelley is equally passionate about supporting mothers in emotionally processing their birth stories. With advanced training in Birth Story Medicine, she has guided hundreds of mothers in healing their birth experiences. In a session with Shelley, mothers reclaim their sense of self and embrace their birth stories with self-compassion and pride, regardless of the outcome.

With over 175 births attended as a birth doula and thousands of hours caring for mothers during their crucial 40-day postpartum period, Shelley possesses profound in-the-field expertise in addressing the needs of postpartum mothers. Feeding and caring for hundreds of mothers, Shelley has witnessed remarkable results–speedy recovery from birth, abundant milk supply and peacefulness among her clients. This led Shelley to cultivate a methodology for postpartum care that undeniably works. The postpartum mothers she serves thrive. It’s a life-changing approach. She knew she had to teach families to do what she does, so she started her business, New Mother Caregiving, LLC to share her recipes and knowledge with the world. 

Families can learn to nourish and care for postpartum mothers through her ebooks, masterclass, and upcoming Youtube channel. Shelley opened an Instagram account in September 2021, which quickly garnered over 100K followers in less than two years. Her free ebook, Post-Birth Recovery Meal Plan has impacted more than 26,000 lives.

Shelley’s greatest dream for the world is for every postpartum mother to be nourished and well-cared for.​

Shelley believes that when family members show up and care for mothers during this time of vulnerability, love strengthens, benefiting not only the mother and baby, but the entire family for generations to come!
