Tending to the
Mother  

12/03/2022 10am AEST

 

A community care workshop for those passionate about learning the fundamentals of postpartum care. This is a one-off online session for both birth professionals and community members. 

The content is drawn from both personal experience and study, and is relevant for anyone interested in tending to new mothers or parents, at any stage.

This will be delivered online, with a zoom link sent to you once booked. I do plan to run this in-person in the future. 

We cover; 

  • Why postpartum care is a whole-community responsibility and not solely for doulas or medical professionals 

  • Practical and fun ways to coordinate it for ourselves or for others

  • Fundamental needs for maternal wellbeing - discussion 

  • What blocks arise in both the giving and receiving 

  • How to build confidence in caring for new mothers; what tools and skills are most helpful

  •  Collective care; what systems to create to make maternal care work sustainable and joyful 

  • What training may or may not be needed - discussion 

  • The most important things to consider when holding space for new mothers. 

  • What worked for me and what didn’t - personal reflections 

  • What postpartum looks like for IVF, early birth and abortion 

  • Recipes and meal ideas 

  • Q&A
