After-Birth Care Workshop: Essential Oils, Infant Massage & Core Stability

Sunday July 28th, 12:30 - 2:00 pm

$35 per person

90 minute workshop discussing ways to care of your body and baby postpartum.

Learn all about the safe and practical uses of Essential Oils for Pre/Postpartum Support from Amanda Snelson, a local mama to a six-month-old. You will learn how they can benefit you from pregnancy, labor, through postpartum, and even in baby care.

You will be guided through making a custom 10ml sleep support roller to take home and incorporate immediately into your life!

Evidence-based research indicates infant massage promotes emotional, social, cognitive, and physical well-being. Learn about this powerful bonding activity from Massage Therapist, Khara Pechtes who will guide you through remarkable specialized stroke and touch techniques to promote healing, nonverbal communication, and soothing that provides nurturing contact for both parents and babies.

Core Stability isn't about having a tight tummy (although that is nice), it's about the quality of life raising a little human with little to no back, hip, and shoulder pain. You'll learn from Pre/Postnatal Yoga instructor Erin Floyd, who will give you techniques on reducing Diastasis recti (also known as abdominal separation) and strengthening your transverse abdominal muscles. Even if you are still pregnant, this information will be great for you to learn now and use after baby arrives.

Babies and partners are welcome, if you're pregnant, please bring a doll for infant massage.
