McLean’s business name, ‘Mother The Mother’ says it all, and her mission to modernize the first 40 days is a game changer. If mamas were truly nourished the first 40 days after birth, we’d see numbers drop in postpartum baby blues and overwhelm. Listen to this important conversation and share it with all of your mama friends, no matter how long ago they gave birth.

McLean lives in Los Angeles where she works in service to women as a Postpartum Doula, Prenatal Expert, Motherhood Guide, Nutritionist, Yoga & Pilates Teacher, Lactation Educator Counselor, Loss Doula and Meditation Teacher. She works with women from Fertility all the way through to Motherhood. At home she is a devoted mother to her own daughters Jemima and Goldy Wolf.

Through her own pregnancy and birth experiences, McLean started learning about the birth world and happened upon a career that she never saw coming. After the birth of her first daughter, she realized that there was a great need for women to be supported after birth physically, emotionally and spiritually. Organically, she was led to her truest passion, to support women during one of their most vulnerable times in life and bear witness to their rite of passage into Motherhood. Through the healing home birth of her second daughter, she delved deeper into the “40 Days Tradition” and has made it her mission to educate women and their loved ones on how important this healing time is for longevity and full circle healing.

It takes a village to raise up a mother, not just a child.
