Postpartum is a time when the women heals, connects with her baby, transforms into a mother and lays the foundation for her long term health.
In traditions around the world, the new mother is taken care of, celebrated and acknowledged for her vital role in her family, community and society as a whole.
Now, in this modern world, the postpartum period is disregarded. No longer looked at as an essential time for mother and baby, but more often then not, it is deemed as an after thought, or a simply luxury only to be experienced by those who can 'afford' that type of support.
This disregard has caused serious damage, and the repercussions are felt on multiple levels with mothers, babies and families in regards to their emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health.
This course is being taught to awaken families to the truth of postpartum, and the tremendous responsibility on us, to ensure that mothers are taken care of. They are the key, and the health of our children and future
generations depend on them.
