I had a VBAC … and Fatima was my doula.  She was wonderful, informative, supportive and I’m grateful she was by my side throughout it all.  From consultation to laboring at home and pushing for 5 hours she was calm, patient, knowledgeable and motivating.  Highly recommend. – Shukri

Postpartum Preparation &
Nourishment for the New Mom

The postpartum time is a special time in the journey of parenthood. It’s a time when so many changes happen on all levels- hormonal, emotional, relational and physical. This is the time for community building and support and yet, we often find that planning for it can easily slip through the cracks as we prepare for baby’s arrival.

 

In this workshop, we focus on tips for caring for the new mother (whether that’s you or your loved one), ideal nutrition & body care. You leave this workshop with a better understanding of what cultures around the world have practiced to celebrate and nourish the new mother. I also provide you with 2 samples of nourishing foods/products and access to ideas & resources for your Postpartum Plan.

This 2 hour workshop is ideal for all families, new and old.
