Your Babymoon Workshop

Sunday – August 6, 2017 (1pm-4pm)
How to heal physically, mentally, and spiritually during the postpartum year…
Postpartum Healing







We go beyond newborn basics and get the heart of the transformation of your family. Learn about how to prepare for the experience after baby has arrived. We’ll put together a postpartum vision and explore how to cope with changing family relationships (whether it’s with your partner, your extended family, or your other children). Some of the topics we will cover are postpartum emotions for both mom and her partner, non-judgmental basic infant feeding education, newborn care, postpartum and parenthood transition preparation, as well as postpartum rituals around the world that are rooted in biology and psychology. This workshop is complimentary to the one-day birthing class and private classes I offer, or can be taken separately.

Location: HOME Holistic (Overland Park, KS)
Investment: $25/person or $40/couple (mother + birth partner)
