We must care for ourselves as much as we care for our babies in the lead up to birth and beyond.
Growing your baby requires a lot of physical and emotional energy, which is why it’s so important for you to give yourself the space and time to grow, to understand and nurture your changing body and your maternal mind.
Gather with us to learn healing practices for positive motherhood.
In this workshop, we will discuss ways to practice self-care through pregnancy including:
Choosing care providers and birth support that suit and support your preferences
Finding health practitioners to nurture your body, baby and emotions through pregnancy
Changing bodies: what to expect, understanding "why", how to handle and heal
Emotional adjustments: navigating identity shifts, dealing with "opinions"
Creating your village: strengthening relationships with partners before baby, establishing positive support systems
Nourishing nutrition and herbs for health: essential for growth of mother and baby
Reducing toxins: eliminating harmful products in your home and pantry
Relaxation and rejuvenating practices: benefits of mindfulness, sex, exercise and more
