Nurtured Mothers Group In Melbourne
Birth is so much more than having a baby. It’s also the birth of you as a mother. It’s one of the most profound and unravelling experiences of your life, altering you physically and emotionally on many levels. Whilst you’re falling in love with your baby, you’re also faced with so many challenges. Now days many women become mothers without the postnatal support and village of old. This can leave you feeling overwhelmed while trying to navigate this new journey of motherhood.
We at Nurtured Birth are very excited and passionate about bringing this series of gatherings together for you mamas and our dear community. It’s a safe and precious space of connection, mother crafting and guidance.
This postnatal support group will run for 5 weeks. Its aim is to support and cheerlead new mothers to develop confidence in their parenting while sharing their journey with other like-minded women.
Some of the topics covered in the series will include:
- Transitioning to motherhood
- Self care/filling up your cup
- Postnatal support for nutrition and breastfeeding
- Newborn sleep and settling in the first 3 months
- Postnatal challenges
- Attachment parenting
- Connecting with your baby.
Numbers are limited to 12 mother-baby pairs
