You will leave this day retreat with a solid understanding of the physiological needs of the postpartum period and how to thrive in this sacred time of your life. Together we will explore what is going on in the body, mind, heart and nervous system of the mother-baby dyad, and how can we best support it. In order to safeguard ourselves from the common occurrences of postpartum mood disorders, education is key to understanding what we need as postpartum mothers - from our social, nutritional, biological and hormonal need to our physical and needs for optimal healing and restoration from childbirth.
This wisdom is invaluable on your journey into motherhood for the 1st or the 5th time.
Limited spaces available for Saturday 30th October.
If we have overflow, we will organise a second retreat for Sunday 31st.
This event will be held in June 2022 also.
This is a specific course designed for pregnant couples, with an emphasis on why planning for the postpartum time is fundamental for the health of mothers, their families and communities.
It will go above and beyond what the current narrative is around this time and what it represents.
We will bring a deeper awareness to why it’s so important, touching on the emotional, psychological and fundamental requirements to create a deeper experience of healing, wellness and support. INNATE’s Community Education Series focuses on an in-depth teaching of the 5 Essentials of Postpartum Care. These 5 Essentials of Postpartum Care are found throughout the world’s ancient postpartum traditions AND are deeply rooted in women’s physiologic and psychologic needs postpartum.
In this way, we bring honor and a layer of completion to our rites of passage into Motherhood and Fatherhood.
