Dahlia Mama desires to support families in their transition to parenthood. I support families in strengthening their bonds and igniting community within and outside the home. Celebrating and honoring the diversity of each family's parenthood journey is at the heart of how I serve.
Offering postpartum groups, prenatal support, parent and tots yoga, prenatal yoga, parenthood circles, expectant couples prep courses and more in Placerville! Serving surrounding areas such as Pollock Pines, Cameron Park, and El Dorado Hills.
Prenatal & postpartum support may contribute to:
Experiencing motherhood more positively
Creating a closer bond with baby
Increasing feelings of success with breastfeeding
Decreasing likelihood of developing depression or anxiety
Establishing a strong family foundation
Allowing yourself to rest during this transformation
It's your time to FEEL and TAKE IN ALL THAT IS MAMAHOOD
Hi there! My name is Rebecca Raas and I support mamas and families along their mighty journey of pregnancy, birth, and beyond!
I am a Behavior Support Coach and Yoga & Mindfulness Guide located in Placerville. I hold my Master's degree in Behavioral Psychology.
Learn more about my offerings here and check out the weekly schedule and descriptions below!
Weekly Mindfulness & Yoga Offerings!
As a lover of community, togetherness, mamas, families and sweet babes, I facilitate weekly mindfulness, yoga, and community building circles in El Dorado County.
These are held weekly at The Meadow Connect in Placerville. Come join us for Our Village Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga, Mindfulness, & Sharing Circle for expectant moms and moms with babies. Or you may like to try Together We Move Parent & Tots Yoga, Playtime & Bonding Experience for toddlers ages 1-5 years old and their mamas. Additionally, I offer a Stronger Together Playgroup & Parenthood Circle gatherings on Fridays, outdoors (inside based on weather).
If you are looking for something just for you, rather than with your little baby or toddler, come join our Gentle Yoga Mindful Movement evening class.
Drop ins are okay for these or you can register in advance.

Looking to work with me one-on-one? I offer services as a Behavior Support Coach for families with young children 5 years and younger. You can learn more about my one-on-one services here: dahliamama.com/work-with-me
Monthly Sacred Space Workshops for Expectant Mamas
Additionally, I offer monthly Sacred Space workshops specifically for expectant mamas.
These workshops include movement, sensation, connection, and reflection along your pregnancy journey.
Gentle yoga asana, pregnancy and birth affirmations, reflective journaling, and mindfulness practices are woven throughout our time together.
A resource list and practical postpartum planning guide are provided as well to support you in transitioning into your new life ahead.
These are held on the second Sunday afternoon of each month at The Meadow Connect in Placerville. Register at dahliamama.com/womb
Parenthood Prep for Expectant Couples
Looking for a way to prepare your relationship for big changes? I offer a Becoming Us Transition into Parenthood evening series for couples held at The Wild Pea boutique shop in downtown Placerville. We review realistic expectations of parenthood, and healthy coping strategies for the many transitions ahead. Positive communication as a couple as well as planning for the first weeks and months with baby and creating your network of support is discussed as well. Register here: dahliamama.com/couples
A Bit About Me
I have trained with Sierra Childbirth Institute with the lovely Janine Maitri, through Cornerstone Doula Trainings with Juli Tilsner, as well as with Kerry Ingram of Mothering Arts, and Elly Taylor of Becoming Us. Additionally, as your yoga guide, I hold a 200 hour yoga teacher training via Heart & Bones Yoga and have trained at a Registered Prenatal Yoga School with Hannah Muse to support expectant and postpartum mamas in movement. I hold my Masters degree in Psychology and have an extensive background in working with families and children in an intimate capacity.
I established Dahlia Mama in 2018 after bringing my own sweet ones into the world and have been supporting families in a group setting since this time. Bringing mamas and families together and holding space for all of one’s experiences in a loving and compassionate way allows me to support mamas and families during this transformation. We need to know we are not alone along this mighty journey!
