Event description


Pregnancy, childbirth, and post partum can be a challenging, yet rewarding milestone in women's life. Whether you are a first time or experienced mama, there is always so much conflicting information about ways to care for yourself and your new baby. As pregnancy + baby experts, we often hear "I wish I would have known about this when I was pregnant with my child" or "Why wasn't I told about this from my healthcare provider?".

Our intention for this workshop is to bridge the gap between the health care system and holistic approaches regarding pregnancy, birth, the fourth trimester, and all things baby so that you know what to expect when you are expecting....honestly.

Join Jill Godin, Nurse + founder of Essentials by Nature along with Lauren Mary, Holistic Doula and founder of Lauren Mary Holistics, for a full day workshop where you will discover evidence based practices + holistic know hows so that you feel empowered to thrive in this transition from maiden to mother.

We have invited Edmonton's best industry birth professionals to collaborate with us on this event.

Here's a mini preview of what we will be covering:
