Miranda Hanan is excited to be starting a Mother-Baby Café in the West Custer County Library Community Room. The Mother-Baby Cafe is a space for postpartum mothers (up to 12 months) to gather, connect, share stories and bond through the hardship and privilege of motherhood. Miranda will offer hands-on newborn support, postpartum education (including breastfeeding/baby wearing/belly binding/cloth diapering), nourishing snacks and coffee. If you are not able to leave other children at home or with a loved one, a quiet activity will be provided for them. The heart of this group is to hold the mother, not the baby. Miranda is honored to begin this journey; it is her desire to serve with utmost excellence and she cannot wait to meet everyone in person.
Miranda is a mother, herbalist, postpartum doula and breastfeeding + lactation coach. She married her middle school sweetheart at 18 and immediately began taking Clinical Herbalism courses with a deep focus in whole-body Women’s Health. Miranda has served women for years in Des Moines, IA with everything from menstrual health/fertility/birth to in-home postpartum care and newborn support. She has been doing this work for nearly eight years and is extremely passionate about holding space and community for postpartum mothers.
