Postpartum Preparation Workshop

Coming Soon! An opportunity to engage in an on-demand Postpartum Preparation Workshop to create a holistic plan for 4th trimester wellness (also known as the postpartum period). During the workshop, you will review universal postpartum needs and develop skills to discover resiliency within yourself. You will leave with a postpartum plan specific to your needs with the goal of transitioning into parenthood with empowerment, grace, and self-compassion.

  • Created by UMN Occupational Therapy Doctorate student, Mallory Wieland.

    The Postpartum Preparation Workshop includes diving into specifics of who you can turn to for help, the postpartum recovery process, breastfeeding and bottle-feeding education/tips, how to better understand and address mental health challenges that may arise, and how to heal from your birth experience through pelvic floor education and movement practices. The workshop will include evidence-based presentations, hands-on-practice, group discussions, and handouts with education/resources at the end of each session.

    Once registration is completed, parents will be provided a login to view and complete the on-demand curriculum through Mindful Wellbeing’s secure learning portal.

    *Expecting mothers, new mothers, and mothers looking for more postpartum information/connection are all welcome to sign up!

    $100 for the workshop, available for 1 year once purchased. Financial hardship accommodations available upon request.
