Once the thrill and amazement of your baby's arrival wears off, the majority of moms have regrets about their birth experience - particularly first timers. For other moms, motherhood is not what they expected - sleepless nights, deep emotions, uncharted experiences, body metamorphosis, and shifting family dynamics. A mother needs to process, release, rebuild, and recover. A mother needs to take a moment to catch her breath and figure out who she is in the here and now.
I hear many mothers say that looking back at the postpartum period they didn't realize they were suffering. I believe every woman needs support in postpartum recovery. The postpartum period lasts up to 18 months in my experience. And it is never too late to address the unresolved emotions from pregnancy, birth, and postpartum - in fact, if not addressed, they may resurface in menopause.
Postpartum symptoms that can be addressed in the package include: exhaustion, anemia, anxiety, stress, insomnia, depression, difficulty adjusting to motherhood, inability to cope with day to day tasks.

Perinatal means the time around birth. This package is meant to be used during pregnancy, through birth, and into the postpartum period.
