I am Nurtured - Jeanne Reilly, RDN

We are Registered Dietitians, and proactive parents just like you.

That’s why we created New Mama – a postnatal multivitamin drink mix designed to completely replace your prenatal vitamins after you give birth. Our insistence on using only the highest quality, active forms of research-backed vitamins, minerals and botanicals is our way of demystifying the supplement & vitamin aisle. We just put all the necessary ingredients in one place for you! New Mama is a simple way to build a little self-care into your hectic new #momlife – just add a packet to your water and nourish your body on the road to postpartum recovery. Our goal is to help you be your best so you can give your family your best. Put your oxygen mask on first, right? It’s time to get back to feeling and enjoying life in the way you are meant to. It’s time to be nurtured.

Physical Therapy


Dr. Nicole Laird, PT, DPT

Dr. Nicole Laird started Hays County Physical Therapy and Wellness after she had her son in 2016. As a physical therapist and new mom, she was astonished by the lack of information and guidance there was for postpartum mothers. As a result, she opened Hays County Physical Therapy and Wellness so no other women would ever have to feel lost and alone while navigating their own postpartum journey. Since opening the clinic, she has provided compassionate and personalized care to help women heal from pelvic floor dysfunctions, and allow women to get their confidence and life back.

At Hays County Physical Therapy and Wellness, we strive to empower women through the many changes that occur during aging, pregnancy, postpartum recovery, and through menopause. We partner with women to help them reclaim their lives and return to the activities and sports they love with dignity and confidence.

Pelvic Floor Therapists


Phoenix Physical Therapy & Wellness

My name is Kendel Lipe and I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy, pelvic floor specialist, and owner of Phoenix Physical Therapy & Wellness.  I’m an outdoor enthusiast, endurance athlete, engineer, and healer. My aim is to provide a unique, specialized and integrative approach to physical therapy, seeing every patient one-on-one and empowering them with tools to lead their most fulfilled life.

I look beyond your muscles and joints to the many facets that interact with your symptoms – your nervous system, connective tissue,  posture, lifestyle and story. I use a combination of John Barnes myofascial release, somatic trauma healing, biofeedback training, trigger-point dry needling, vagus nerve stimulation, postural retraining and more. 

I am passionate about holistically treating pelvic floor concerns in both males and females, educating people about this integral part of their body and core. I treat at every stage of the pregnancy cycle – I equip pre-partum moms with the knowledge, tools, range of motion and tissue mobility necessary to minimize birth trauma and be as present & joyous during the birth as possible. I work with post-partum moms weeks to years down the road, helping with incontinence and prolapse concerns, scar tissue release, pelvic pain & painful sex, and tailbone and low back pain. More importantly, I help women work through birth trauma stored in the pelvic floor and surrounding fascia, reconnecting with the area and learning to work with it rather than against it. I also help guide women in exercise and strength-training programs, empowering them to get back to all the activities they love. 

I also work with males, treating erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, testicular pain, incontinence and more. I am LGBT+ friendly, speak Spanish, and have experience working with pediatric pelvic floor concerns. In addition to pelvic floor work, I also treat athletes & general orthopedic concerns, and specialize in working with those with hypermobility, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and other chronic health conditions. 

I am committed to spreading awareness globally regarding pelvic floor dysfunction and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and to providing services for those nationally and internationally who can not otherwise access it. 10% of all proceeds go towards these causes. 

I’m honored to be part of this uplifting and empowering community!

Sleep Consultants

Empowered Beginnings - Cierra Morgan

My name is Ciarra Morgan and I am a Certified Sleep Consultant with the Center for Pediatric Sleep Management. Sleep training was really overwhelming for me with both of my children. After becoming a birth doula and childbirth educator, I decided to jump into the world of sleep consulting. I would have benefited from help with this with my children and wanted to help other families have successful sleep with their children. I’ve seen so many new families that needed support in this area and helping them with this seemed like a natural addition to my services. This is especially needed for parents of young children that are adding a newborn to the picture and want to sleep train their older children before the new baby arrives.
   Contact me for a free discovery call to see if hiring a sleep consultant would be a worthwhile investment for your family.
