With wonder, directness and playfulness, I'm creating a world that fosters connection, trust, sacredness, imagination and reverence for the more than human world.

I believe that when we nourish our mothers, we nourish our world, so it's my mission to support mothers to return to the center of themselves, to remember their belonging to the fertile unknown, embrace change, and trust their incredible hearts and bodies to show the way.


Kate West is mother to 3, plant whisperer, song carrier, ceremonialist, and birth + postpartum caregiver. She believes when a mother's life is rooted in the sacred, her body and life become a life-giving garden.
