The Golden Month
Postpartum Mini Retreat

How to prepare for the fourth trimester

Saturday 9 December 10.30am-12.30pm

Join us for an morning of Postpartum Planning
This mini-retreat is all about YOU and your motherhood journey into the fourth trimester, your golden month, and will give you the tools in how to best prepare for the new born phase.

We will include the pillars of postpartum, gentle yoga & relaxation practices, herbal support, tea, snacks, tips on postpartum planning and there will be a little goodie bag with 100% natural postpartum products to take home.

The Golden Month - the fourth trimester
These are referred to as the first 6 weeks initial weeks of motherhood post birth. It is a time to recuperate and to restore physical & emotional wellbeing, which are two very important factors to promote a smoother journey into parenthood.
This includes extra rest, focus on nourishment and hydration, support and community just to name a few.

Having a general postpartum recovery plan is helpful to ensure that your environment is set up to support you as you navigate the rapid changes and energy demands of life with a newborn.

The emphasis can then be placed on the sacred bonding and growth as a family, and promote a more peaceful and positive birth recovery.

This Mini Retreat is for pregnant mama's, and we also welcome mama's with bubs in arms in the early stages of motherhood. 

Here are some of the topics we will touch on

- Optimising Rest

- Nourishment
- How to create your village
- Herbal support for Birth & the Fourth Trimester
- Pelvic Floor Health

Being pro-active in your postpartum planning can take off a lot of stress of the fourth trimester, and more space to enjoy baby while you feel nourished as well.
