A self-paced, online course by Lael Stone & Bernadette Lack to nurture and support you through a connected, powerful postpartum period.

A transformative initiation into motherhood that holds you physically, mentally & emotionally in early postpartum

You planned your pregnancy, labour and birth. But once you’ve grown and birthed your baby (you magical, marvellous human) what tools and support do you have to navigate the emotional, physical and mental transformation to motherhood?

Modern Western culture has lost sight of the rites of passage and ritual around birth and postpartum that nurtures the mother in those early weeks and months. And at times it can feel lonely and overwhelming.

You can find yourself struggling in postpartum with:

  • Understanding and healing the physical changes and postpartum body issues that so many of us experience
  • Processing birth trauma or postpartum emotions as a new mother
  • Settling, feeding and understanding your new baby
  • Connecting with your partner and nourishing your relationship
  • Following your intuition and instincts in a sea of differing information
  • Understanding what is physically and emotionally normal postpartum
But your postpartum journey is not one you have to do alone. Holding the Mother is your village to nourish you through your transition to motherhood. This is compassionate knowledge and guidance to nurture, heal and connect with your postpartum self whilst meeting your needs and those of your baby in a way that feels right to you.

Often it’s not until we’ve been through our first postpartum period that we realise how little support we had and how much we really needed emotional and physical support in early postpartum. Perhaps you didn’t feel your first postpartum period was as rewarding or memorable as you had hoped. We want to help you have a positive and powerful postpartum period every time you welcome a new babe. This course is designed to help you do just that.

This course is what they don’t tell you in the current system. This is the physical, emotional and mental information you need to find power in your postpartum space. To understand the issues you may be facing and to address them and heal from them. We created this course because this information is not being given to early postpartum mothers.

No, the resources contain additional information to help you find out what is going on for you.

You won’t! You get lifetime access to this flexible online content. Do it at your own pace in your own time.

Yes. This is about taking care of yourself as a mother and fostering a greater connection to your physical and mental well-being. It’s for learning about yourself and your baby in the early postpartum space and will help you have a positive rewarding postpartum period in line with your own values.

Via flexible online video and audio content. Convenient for you to tune in whenever works for you. You also have access to a detailed resource guide for further support.

Watch what you need. Take from it what resonates and works for you.

Yes. We invite you to tune into your baby and their feelings and communications and provide some ways that you can help maximise sleep for the whole family in those early weeks and months. But it is not a sleep guide and there is no step-by-step settling information. instead, we focus on tuning into your baby’s communications and how you can better connect with and understand your baby.

Confidence and power as a mother in early postpartum. A detailed understanding of physical body issues and how they can be healed. An understanding and pathway to navigate your emotional experiences.
