CLASSES IN PDX

Ritual Postpartum offers a unique continuity of care, beginning postpartum education and preparation during pregnancy. With this prenatal education, we are participating in preventative care for the fourth trimester, helping eliminate overwhelm, anxiety, perinatal mood disorders and other challenges by creating a solid foundation of information and preparation beforehand.

INNATE POSTPARTUM CARE: THE ESSENTIALS OF POSTPARTUM HEALING

This 2-hr discussion is intended for expecting parents interested in exploring how to prepare for a Fourth Trimester of nourishment, rest, and receiving. We will draw from examples from traditions passed down for generations, based on the physiological needs of a postpartum body.

In many places all around the world, postpartum people are supported with medicinal foods, loving touch, and therapeutic warming techniques to help bring them back into their body and integrate after the expansive, intense, and magical experience of birth. Innate Postpartum Care is about weaving these healing modalities while rooted in community support, creating a wholesome foundation from which life can truly flourish.

Families-your support people are welcome to join in on this conversation, too! As a human species, we are meant to thrive by caring for each other, being connected to the rhythms of the Earth, and the cycles of our own bodies.

Let's encourage each other to trust in our support teams and not be afraid to be specific about what we need, following our intuition every step of the way. After all, this precious time is unlike any other moment in a family's life, and it is our birthright to receive the healing and care we deserve. Together, we can collectively return to our original ways of being, and it starts by supporting those who are bringing children into this world.

95923ec25148ccff201a03a446c1a69a-1.jpg

This 5-Class Series is intended for expecting families who are interested in understanding how to best prepare for a postpartum window of healing, receiving, and deeply listening.

This is an in-depth exploration divided into four prenatal discussions and one gathering postpartum. The purpose of this class series is to both educate prenatally as a form of postpartum preventative care, and to also be a part of an intimate and interconnected community of other expecting families. Your family's additional support people are welcome to join too!

Together we are honoring the postpartum window as a sacred time for healing. With every child we give birth to, we ourselves are reborn anew. By doing this work, we are participating in a cultural shift: a returning to what has been forgotten where the Fourth Trimester is tended to with respect by ourselves and those supporting us. You deserve this. Your family deserves this! Let's be in solidarity to create the postpartum window that can serve us and our families in the most loving and nourishing way possible.
