Are you in the throes of life after birth and feeling overwhelmed and under-prepared for your own emotional and physical survival and recovery? Or perhaps you're prepping to have baby #2 and worried about what to expect this time around after birth, especially if you had a rough postpartum the first time. For the second time, the Institute for Birth Healing is hosting the Birth Healing Summit, an online gathering of expert speakers presenting on topics vital to the health and recovery of people who have recently given birth. The summit is free to attend and will take place live online September 25 - October 2. The sessions also will be recorded and available to listen to at a later time. Topics include:
Struggling with your body after birth
Wondering why you don’t feel the same as before you gave birth
Dealing with intense emotions about your birth
Feeling vaginal pressure after birth
Peeing your pants or peeing too frequently (more than once every 2-3 hours)
Safe exercise after birth
Feeling out of sorts and having difficulty bonding with your baby
Re-strengthening your core after birth (every mom needs to!)
Essentially, the Birth Healing Summit is for any postpartum person who could benefit from care and healing. Participants will learn:
- Why kegels don’t always help after birth
- Signs your body is not liking exercise after birth
- Principles of healing and resolving trauma
- Why you should never do another crunch again - EVER!
- Signs Your Body Is Still Stuck Birthing... and so much more!
