In addition to midwifery and lactation services, we have several other providers available to meet your needs before, during and after pregnancy. These services are all provided at the Babies in Bloom Birth and Wellness Center.


Placenta Encapsulation

Kelly Pappas

Placentas have been used for postpartum health and healing since women began having babies. Utilizing your placenta has the potential to help with postpartum depression, lactation difficulties, postpartum bleeding, stress and transition, replenishing nutrients and helping mothers have an all around happier post-birth journey.

To learn more about the different types of placenta services available, including encapsulation, tinctures, salves, prints and more, please contact Kelly or visit her website.

homeopathy san diego


Willow Brutlag

Homeopathy is useful for chronic and acute issues. A chronic complaint is something that keeps returning or has been with the person for a long enough time that acute symptomatic care isn’t helping anymore, they would like to try a holistic approach to their treatment, or want an overall immune system boost.  Some examples are chronic ear infections, anxiety, colds and flus that last longer than 4 weeks, hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue, and many more.  Along with homeopathic remedies, Willow also offers nutritional and supplement recommendations to treat the whole person. Willow is also available for acute care and remedy recommendations for colds, flus, ear infections, morning sickness, etc.  Results are seen within hours to a couple days depending on the ailment. Contact Willow here.
