Cheer Up Buttercups: Austin Women-Owned Business Offers Postnatal Support

published on March 14, 2013

Whether an Austin parent stays home all day with the kids, works from home in Lost Creek, or commutes from home to a long day’s work in Lakeway, parenting is no easy job.

For Austin nutritionist and cancer survivor Allison Reyna, the experience of raising three young children in a loving, healthy home, while trying to perform the job she loved — all without nearby relatives for support — was a consummate lesson in asking for help.

“I would not have survived if it was not for the support and guidance of those trusted friends, caregivers, and professionals whose help I sought,” confesses Reyna. “If only there had been one place,” she wonders, “one village I could have turned to no matter what the challenge with my children was!”

It was on this premise that Reyna and close friend Monika Burgett co-founded Cheer Up Buttercups — a circle of passionate postnatal care specialists supporting everyday parents along the sometimes bumpy road of parenthood. “We have assembled the best of the best,” says Reyna.

A native of Houston, Burgett held a professional position within the Health Science and Environmental Service industry at the time she started a family. Burgett and her husband also depended on a team of gifted caregivers, professionals, and experts.

“No book or prenatal parenting class could have prepared me for a baby who slept through feedings, could not maintain his body temperature, and had acid reflux and colic—or another child who spent her first months of life in Intensive Care,” says Burgett.

Co-founder Burgett’s aspirations behind Cheer Up Buttercups were to provide parents with unparalleled support in building a foundation under their families, by offering postnatal care that best fit each family’s lifestyle and needs:

“I firmly believe if you establish a strong foundation of proactive healthy habits, any child can thrive in spite of difficult obstacles.”
