I can't describe how grateful we are for your help and guidance Sakina, which transformed our experience into something that was tough, but definitely positive! 

I have a positive birth story, the midwives shocked at how calm I was and that I was 'smiling between contractions'. Thank you so much for the course, even though I was close to EDD the material and course helped so much.

Mothermoon Workshop

You've written your birth plan, taken antenatal classes, practiced your hypnobirthing techniques but have you thought about what happens after you've given birth?

I had two very different postnatal experiences after the births of my children and know first hand the difference that looking after yourself during this time can make or your physical and emotional health and to your confidence as a mother.

After the birth of my son, I tried jumping back into ‘normal’ life again too quickly which resulted in feeling tired and sore and left me feeling emotionally low. It took a long time to feel healthy and well again.

When my daughter was born, I planned a 'mothermoon'. For the first few weeks after she was born I focused on resting, nourishing myself and getting to know my new baby and I felt so much better for it both physically and emotionally.

I want you to experience the benefits of a 'mothermoon' too!

I want you to spend the early days and weeks of your new baby's life focused on resting and bonding with your new baby.

I want you want to start motherhood confident in your abilities as a mother.
