Why postnatal bodywork matters webinar
What you need to know to help new mothers heal faster after birth
W This webinar is designed to help professionals and parents understand why postnatal bodywork is essential and how to make it happen.
For the past 10 years I’ve been teaching professionals and families how to prepare for birth and the postpartum. I have had enough of seeing new mothers struggle alone to adjust to the demands of motherhood, and blame themselves in a society that completely fails to support them. I am on a mission to change this.
In this webinar I will address the following questions:
- What is traditional postpartum wisdom, and why we need it back
- What the 4 pillars of postpartum recovery are
- Why bodywork is the most neglected
- Why postnatal bodywork is a necessity
- What kind of postnatal bodywork options are available
- How to write a postnatal recovery plan that includes bodywork
Why is this knowledge is needed?
In 2020 I published a book called Why postnatal recovery matters, which is a blueprint for a more nurturing postpartum. In the book I explained that a nurturing postpartum boils down to 4 pillars: Social support, Rest, Food and Bodywork. The bodywork seems to be the most neglected. I believe that we can make postpartum nurturing practises the norm once more by raising awareness and encouraging new families to plan for it.
Who is this class for?
This class is for birth and perinatal professionals who want to learn how to support new mothers and families in preparing for a physically nurturing postpartum. This class is also for expectant mothers and families who want to learn about how to help their bodies heal faster after birth.
In this webinar, I will also tell you about my new postnatal rebozo massage and closing ritual online course. I will include a special offer for people attending the class.
What makes this class special?
I have a unique blend of scientific, theoretical and practical experience. I was a biology research scientist for 20 year prior to reconverting to being a doula ten years ago. I offer a blend of scientific, traditional, and practical knowledge.
Rather than following the traditions of one specific culture, I have extracted the universal principles behind all cultures, as well as adapted them to make them possible in today’s world. This means that you can make it work for you and your clients unique circumstances.
As well as history and science, in the class I share real stories from my clients, from mothers and birth professionals, which help illustrate each topic and bring it to life, as well as give you plenty of practical ideas to make it work.
