Holistic and Chinese medicine approaches to Nurturing the Self
£25 per workshop / £140 for 6 weeks (£110 low waged / £90 unwaged)
A series of 6 Thursday evening workshops for pregnant mothers (and partners if desired) – to assist them in their pregnancy, to prepare them for birth and for the early stages of new motherhood
Focus will be on the mother, with suggestions given on supportive foods and herbs during this journey. There will be nurturing mini-massages, warm drinks and sharing experiences, along with talks from experienced birth and post-birth doulas.
We will listen to positive and inspiring birth stories and explore medication-free options for pain relief during birth. We will talk about and prepare ourselves for experiencing the strong emotions that can arise during pregnancy and in that sacred few months after giving birth.
We will discover simple recipes and sample nurturing dishes that support the mother’s energy system, both in pregnancy and in the time that follows the passage of birth. We will explore acupressure points that can assist during these key stages and give suggestions about baby weaning from a Chinese medicine perspective.
