This 6 week series class is designed to provide information and resources as well as to create connections between new mothers. The 4th trimester is the 3 month period after a baby is born. It is a time of intense emotional and physical adjustment for new mothers and babies, and it requires much more support than is currently being provided. This class will provide information and resources and encourage discussion on important 4th trimester topics.
Weekly topics include: Sharing your birth story, newborn's & mother's sleeping patterns, newborn's & mother's nutrition, mother's physical and emotional health & healing, comforting & bonding with baby, basic newborn care, managing relationships and life with a newborn, and finding/using postpartum resources in the community.
VIRTUAL MAMA CIRCLE
Join me and other local mamas for a virtual mama circle the last Wednesday of the month at 1pm. You can drop in and out or stay for the hour to chat. This is a FREE group, but you will need to register for each session. A zoom link will be emailed to you on the morning of the meeting.
