You have a birth plan – now what about your postnatal plan?
Many pregnant women are so focused on the upcoming birth that they forget to plan for the time afterwards. The postnatal period can be a real shock – whether it’s your first child or your third!
….Who will cook meals for you? How will you manage perineal pain? When you will find the time to shower? Do you know what to do when breastfeeding challenges pop up? ….
….Have you thought about the ways your intimate relationships might shift? Do you understand the hormonal changes that occur, and how these affect your physical recovery and emotions?….
….What is it like caring for a newborn all day and night? What can you do to get more sleep? Where can you connect with other new parents or get specialist help?….
If these questions feel overwhelming, then come along to a workshop. I share my experience, research and time-tested strategies, in a reassuring & supportive environment. I also provide a nourishing afternoon tea, and you’ll have a chance to chat & connect with other expectant parents. Many workshop attendees say that their favourite part is meeting other parents-to-be, and realising they are not alone in their concerns & questions.
What people are saying about the workshop
I felt so comfortable in her presence and felt able to share my fears, ideas and hopes. I also felt reassured by her structured approach to this time of seemingly enormous uncertainty.
The workshop opened my eyes to the need to plan the postnatal time. Now I really get why it’s essential to look after myself and more importantly, how to set things up to make that easy.
I really enjoyed your course on Sunday and it was great to bring my mother-in-law too as it has meant that I’m more inclined to ask her for help once the baby comes!
Some topics the workshop covers:
- neuroscience behind “baby brain” & why it’s not all bad
- risks of NOT having postnatal support
- universal principles of postnatal support – and why they work
- the science behind maternal intuition & why making mistakes is essential
- how to build a “village” even if you don’t know any other expectant parents or don’t have family nearby
- postnatal rituals & traditions including bellybinding, massage, & birth story telling
- how to create a self-care plan that runs on autopilot
