The judgement we feel from others is hard to digest, especially if the way others see us leads us to feel disconnected from our culture and the parts of us that heal and nourish us as our bellies grow. If this rings true for you, then Cultura Cura Belly, or CCB, is the healing space you need.

Insights from Real Colorado Parents
“I think that mental health services should be discussed in conversation more. Information was always provided in writing, but it wasn’t always discussed by the practitioner.
Also, I think that filling out a depression scale is confusing/misleading because many mothers experience normal levels of anxiety, worry, and depression but might feel uncomfortable saying “yes” to items on the depression scale – for fear of being stigmatized or diagnosed.”
