“Postnatal recovery and 4th Trimester support” is our third workshop in the women’s health workshop series. Nearly all cultures have traditions around the care of mother and baby in the first forty days after birth. In modern times this is the period known as the ‘fourth trimester’. The focus of the postnatal period is on rest, support, warmth and nutrition. As a Naturopath I use herbal medicines, teas, meal suggestions and nutritional supplements to enhance healing, encourage a good milk supply, support relaxation and a balanced mood; let me share this knowledge with you.
The workshop will cover:
- Healing after birth (either from vaginal or caesarean birth)
- Fourth trimester nourishment and recovery
- Postnatal depression and anxiety
- Sleep difficulties
- Anaemia and low iron levels
- Vitamin D deficiency
- Low energy levels and fatigue
- Thyroid problems such as Hyperthyroidism
- Meal planning and nutritional guidance
- Mastitis prevention and recovery
- Low breast milk supply
- Cracked and damaged nipples
- Depleted immune system and frequent infections
- Hormonal imbalances and return of fertility
The cost of the workshop is $15 (or $10 if you book with a friend) and includes morning tea, guest speakers, access to notes/resources and a FREE gift bag. Tickets can be purchased here.
We look forward to seeing you there!
