An event for pregnant women and their partners who would like to find out more about the fourth trimester - the first 42 days after birth

About this Event

This event is for pregnant women and their partners who would like to find out more about the fourth trimester - the first forty two days after birth.

There are increasingly more ways and means for us to engage in preparing for birth but still very little about how to prepare for the time after birth.

The time after birth for a mother is a time when she is in recovery. Her body has just undergone a phenomenal physiological process, the mind is making sense of the incredible experience she has just been through whilst at the same time learning how to attune to and care for this new, vulnerable, precious, human.

The vital window of the first 42 days is a time for -

  • beginning our relationship and bond with a new baby
  • engaging in recovery
  • processing our birth experience
  • beginning to assimilate our new role and meaning in life

This vital window in our attachment with our babies is a time that requires the care of the mother and it is a time that requires preparation for.How is it that we can approach this time so that mother and child have a good start? How is it that a family can approach this time so that a mother can recover well and thrive? What can Chinese Medicine offer us in understanding practical and nutritional care? What simple things can we bring to this time that can make a huge impact?

Join us on Wednesday 22nd January at 7pm for the evening.

This event is free. However, we are suggesting donations on a sliding scale £5-£10 per person to go towards raising funds for Flo’s. You can donate here on eventbrite or in person on the day.

The evening will be raising funds for Flo's The Place in the Park (in Florence Park). The centre is beginning two new community groups in 2020 - one group is for supporting dads and the other group is supporting grandparents.
