Preparing for Postpartum Workshop
Despite popular belief in the United States, postpartum isn't just about the baby. Postpartum is a time of recovery and getting to know this new version of yourself. Plan for your postpartum journey as you are planning for your birth; you won't regret it.
Time & Location
May 08, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Saint Paul and Zoom (Hybrid), 1278 Selby Ave, St Paul, MN 55104, USA
About the event
Grab your adult diapers, grab your ice packs! This course is all about YOU! You will leave with an Amazon cart full of recovery supplies, but you will also learn about perinatal mood disorders like depression, anxiety, and rage. In this course, Bria also touches on setting boundaries with pesky guests and how to transition a bit more smoothly with your partner into parenthood.
Here are the highlights from the course:
- Healing: bleeding, cramping, tearing, incisions, and diastasis recti.
- Physical needs: an extended rest period, nourishing food, loving touch.
- Emotional needs: asking for help, postpartum mood disorders, maintaining your relationship with your partner, and new personal identities.
