Ruthii Slattum is first and foremost a wife and mother to four energetic young souls. She has had four very different births, one hospital, one birth center, and two at home. Her passion for women stems from the different personal experiences of welcoming each child into their family. Ruthii understands first hand how a woman is treated during this sensitive period can impact her for months and even years.
Ruthii has had her certification in lactation (Clinical Lactation Specialist) since January 2014, and has long term goals of reaching IBCLC status. Since then, she has also trained as a postpartum doula and placenta encapsulator. In January 2015 she took the traditional training of postpartum sealing offered through a local woman of great knowledge and wisdom.This training has launched Ruthii into her passion of supporting women in the most tender of times through Mothering Ceremonies, Belly Binding, Yoni Steam Baths and more.
Ruthii is also passionate about art, babywearing, building her own furniture (much to the exasperation of her sweet husband), obnoxiously long road trips, supporting other small businesses and craftsmen, essential oils, living small, swing dancing, real food and gardening. She lives in San Diego on 5 acres and enjoys time with her young family, playing in the dirt, caring for the kids chickens, and eating the fresh fruit that proliferates the property. She’s beyond blessed to be close to family and have a strong support network of friends.
