Postnatal Planning Workshops
Across the world many cultures have traditions for the postnatal period that set an amount of time aside for the mother or birthing person to rest, recover and adapt to parenthood. Friends and family gather to care for the new parents during this time and it is recognised that support is required when a new baby arrives in to the family.
In the UK, very few traditions are recognised or practised, with sometimes praise even given to parents who are seen to be up and about and returning to “normal”. With 1 in 5 women suffering with postnatal depression and some of the lowest breastfeeding rates in the world, perhaps it is time to change how we look at the postnatal period here in the UK.
In creating a postnatal plan it is recognising the need for rest, recovery, support, and time to adapt to parenthood. While every eventuality cannot be planned for, the real value of a postnatal plan is in creation of it; the exploring of options, finding what is important to you, and how that can be achieved.
