Join us as we explore how to prepare consciously for postpartum care with Christine Eck’s insight and wisdom. We will discuss how to create a safety net through communication with partners, researching resources on postpartum care, and exploring nourishing foods, music, and smells that make us feel safe. We will also explore different ways caregivers can acknowledge and honor the shift into parenthood, such as through ceremonies, rituals, self-massage with warm oils, breathing practices, and writing. Plus, we will dive into Christine’s experience of how to support families during the sacred window of time, providing comfort and basic needs, offering advice and information, and making sure partners feel supported.
