This series of group programs includes sessions for pregnant women, preparing for breastfeeding and others for new mamas looking for additional support with breastfeeding, infant nutrition and maintaining their own health during the early years of mothering. All of them aim to ease stress & overwhelm, so you can focus on being the mama that you want to be. Connect with me on Facebook for updates on scheduled sessions.
Workshop Session Summaries
For New Mamas – whether for the 1st, 2nd or 5th time! Infants welcome at all sessions.
In a culture where this process isn’t celebrated & supported like it once was, we often rush & push to ‘get back to normal’. Instead of feeling well, we feel frustrated, disconnected, exhausted, lost. We discover that the ways we were taking care of ourselves before baby’s arrival, don’t fit well into life as a mother ~ quiet time for snuggling in a favourite chair with a good book, meditating, having a hot bath (alone!) or heading out to a favourite yoga or fitness class just doesn’t seem to exist anymore.
This workshop session invites you to pause. We’ll explore & experience simple self care practices you can begin to easily integrate into your day & build your own resilience as a mother.
It’s time to move YOU to the top of your list & discover your new version of self care as a mother, so you feel more calm, confident & connected, every day.
Let’s Talk About Food, Baby: Solid Foods & Baby Led Weaning. Solid food introduction is an exciting time for families and one that often comes with a lot of questions. In this session we discuss readiness for solid foods, healthy first foods, the baby led weaning approach to food introduction, common concerns parents have while introducing solid foods & their solutions & recipes the whole family will enjoy.
Back to Work & Breastfeeding: To Wean or Not to Wean? The transition back to work after having a baby can feel so challenging – physically, mentally & emotionally. Continued breastfeeding upon your return to work can be supportive for you & your baby. In this session we discuss the benefits of continued breastfeeding through the transition back to work, support for balancing work & breastfeeding & creating your back to work & breastfeeding plan.
Individual sessions on these topics – for a Mama & one support person – are available. Contact me to arrange a time.

I’m happy to provide the sessions in your home, for groups of five or more.
