This is a retreat for pregnant women and their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters. Mothers of any age are also welcome with their women relatives, or alone.
The way a woman is nurtured during the postpartum time can affect her physical and emotional health for the rest of her life. Women relatives of the new mother play a vital role in providing this care and support.
This event provides a space in which the elders of new mothers can share about their own experiences of pregnancy, birth, the postpartum time, and motherhood. In being heard and honored, this clears a path for the next generation of mothers.
All together, we will dive into a re-education about birth, postpartum and early motherhood, and each family will make a plan to support the woman-to-be.
