Starting May 11, we’ll be meeting bi-weekly on Fridays from 3:30-5pm to connect and enjoy an open, honest, and interesting discussion on a specific topic facilitated by Stacey. Below are a list of themes we’ll be chatting about, along with anything else that you want to share.
- Foods for healing, nourishment and hormonal balance
- Postpartum Sleep
- Reestablishing a sense of self through movement and exercise
- What self-pleasure looks like postpartum
- Sex and Creativity
- Writing down the bones – Integrating your birth experience through writing
Our sessions are open to all mamas and their babies, and we’ll be accepting donations instead of charging a fixed price in order to make it available to as many women as possible.
