We are offered support, love and care throughout pregnancy, but as soon as we give birth all that focus is diverted to the baby. Whilst our baby is worthy of all this attention, our society has forgotten how to nurture the post-natal mum; this leaves her exhausted from birth, sleep deprived and sometimes physically or emotionally traumatised.
I was one of those mums. I experienced postpartum burn out after the birth of my first child. Whilst it was an emotionally and physically exhausting time, it also made me realise that new mums need more than the Western world offers. I now focus on pre and postnatal self care, encouraging mums to think about themselves; the U in mum.
I am excited to announce the start of my self care series for new and expecting mums. This self-care workshop will equip you with knowledge around how to use natural tools to combat post-baby burn out, whether you are preparing for birth or post-partum.
This 1.5 hour session will include:
- Understanding self-care and the barriers to looking after you
- How to use the 3 N’s: Nuture, Nourish and Naturals to deactivate your nervous system, heal from the inside and create a safe environment for you and your baby.
- A personalised self-care plan to take home
- Optional reflexology taster sessions are available after the workshop (top up £10 for 30 minutes)
