Postpartum Prep Workshop:

What to expect after child birth?

The postpartum period (which begins immediately after child birth and extends for about six weeks, as the mother’s body returns to the pre-pregnant state) is a time for deep rest and rejuvenation. Through the process of birth, the body is weak, the tissues are depleted and the digestion is severely impaired. New mothers are as delicate as their newborns at this time. In order to give our children all the love and attention they deserve, we need to be strong, healthy and well balanced. Our babies receive all of their nourishment through us. If we do not take care of ourselves properly, it our precious newborn suffers as well.

In this postpartum ‘What to expect After Birth?’- workshop we will guide you through the time after birth, what to expect when your baby arrives. It will be practical self-preparation course, so you can support yourself into transition of motherhood as smooth as possible. We will talk about first days when the baby arrive, first weeks of being home, we will look into nourishing diet, how to take care of your postpartum body and mind, how to trust your mothering instincts, how to nurture yourself, so you can nurture your baby, how to ask for help, how to involve your surroundings and how to set up a plan for the postpartum period.

Teacher: Doula Paulina Glapinsky

Paulina is pedagogue, mother of two lively sons and has been working as a doula since 2013. She believes birth is a big life event  in which the women should be central. In her guidance as a pre and postnatal doula, Paulina tries to inspire women and their partners to follow their own truths and wisdom during birth so that they can look back proudly and in a sastisfactory way on their birth experience.

Paulina knows both from her own experience as well as from her doula clients how important a good start of the postpartum phase is. It is her mission to prepare pregnant women to this, sometimes challenging phase of their lives as new moms. With her practical view on things, her no-nonsense approach and professional experience, she can give you the best tips, so that you as a new mom can enjoy and live through the postpartum phase in the best possible way.

Paulina also offers consults to support women after a birth trauma, a traumatic past or in case of a strong fear for birth. She uses both awareness, mindfulness and diverse practical techniques, which the women can use in daily life, to address the issues at hand.
