Preparing Yourself for Labor & Postpartum
Join Amy Mager, DACM, Lic. Ac., Fellow of ABORM, to learn skills and tips to soften and ripen your cervix, as well as general information to support you through the birthing and postpartum experiences. We will explore different styles of giving birth through the lens of Chinese medicine, including a focus on the thirty-day postpartum period, during which special care of the mother is emphasized. Learn what you can do from creating a supportive, healing environment pre-birth to facilitating the family’s bonding postpartum and everything in between!
