Ahma & Co provides a postpartum retreat, community, and education to help mothers navigate their crucial first weeks postpartum, and beyond.
Designed to be a transitional experience between the hospital and the home, our retreat offers a peaceful haven in which mothers can focus on their recovery, receive 24/7 guidance and support for newborn care, and start their motherhood journey with the appropriate knowledge and village.
We are currently in the process of bringing the perfect retreat to you. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit Our Services page for more information, join our waitlist so that you can be the first to know when we open, take advantage of our resources, and follow us on Instagram for digestible content.
Ahma, meaning “mother” in various languages, carries a double meaning: it consists of one syllable each from the Korean words for baby and mother, “Ahgi” and “Umma.” Co stands for community – what we believe to be of the utmost importance for a mother’s successful transition into motherhood.
Ahma & Co embodies our ideal of celebrating baby, mother, and community individually and together, highlighting the synergy that will allow the mother to step into the next chapter of her life with the proper support that she deserves.

At our postnatal retreat, we provide the following services:
1. Recovery Support for Mothers: Your healing and recovery is our priority. Experts such as postpartum doulas and pelvic floor physical therapists will ensure that you are healing properly, you won't have to worry about any chores (we'll handle it!), and nutritious meals and snacks will be cooked and delivered right to your room.
2. Newborn Care: A loving mother can still ask for help, especially if she's still recovering from labor. Our experienced nurses and lactation consultants will guide you in every step of the process to remove the guesswork and assure you that you’re doing the right thing. You're always welcome to room in with your baby, but you need your rest, our nursery will welcome and take care of your little one.
3. Education & Community: Just as you prepare for your little one’s arrival beforehand, we encourage mothers to prepare for postpartum well in advance of your due date. As you prepare for your transition into motherhood, we will work with you to demystify postpartum, walk you though exactly what to expect, and involve your support system (whether it be your partner, family, or friends) to develop into your best champions for the challenging time. Once you arrive at our retreat, you will also meet a community of other moms in the same exact stage of motherhood as you, so you can lean on them (and on us) for every step of the way.
As we prepare for the launch of our retreat, we encourage you to join our community by taking advantage of our podcast and articles, following us on Instagram for digestible content and tips, and joining our waitlist to be the first to know when it opens.
Not at all! We are devoted to supporting all mothers and birthgiving individuals, regardless of their cultural background, ethnicity, race, religion, or sexual orientation. Our primary goal is to raise awareness around the challenges of postpartum and empower mothers to tackle a significant and valuable chapter in their lives with more clarity and knowledge.
Absolutely! Although you will have ample support from our experts, we strongly believe that partners should be just as involved in the recovery and transition process. For those able, we encourage them to stay with our mothers and partake in all of our newborn care trainings so that they can feel just as prepared to jump into the baby duties.
