INNATE Postpartum Care -
Preparing for the 4th Trimester Course
with Zoie Wilson
Having a baby is a ceremonial rite. To orient yourself as a new mother you will need optimal resourcing. This class creates a woven fabric of integral care and healing to ensure life long health well after the birth.
When you plan for your immediate postpartum, you gain confidence in the direction of creating a healthy environment for these week by week milestones for your newborn and as parents.
According to the CDC, 1 in 5 women experience one or more symptoms of perinatal mood disorders, postpartum depression, uterine prolapse to name a few of these preventable symptoms. These alarming statistics are preventable through body literacy and education, preparation for treatments and self care, and a community tribe.
Women are misled to believe they can handle it all, thinking they can call for their breastfeeding counselor, a call or two from their midwife, and take care of the problems when families start to experience overwhelm to the new adaption of LIFE. Families soon realize after the birth how much support they actually needed. Immediate postpartum is a recovery period for the entire family, for when stress takes over, it effects our mental health and mothers think something is wrong with them. Stress is a symptom of dysfunction. This is why we plan to create a cushion into a healthy and strong family.
When should I take the class?
I recommend anytime between 25-35 weeks gestation, this gives you optimum time plan ahead and feel good before the baby arrives.

What are people saying?
"If you feel drawn to this workshop, don't hesitate to do so and follow what your heart tells you because this class addressed all my questions, valuable themes, and the most important things in life. There were certain questions that came up for me during the class that I felt I could ask because of the sense of trust I could feel with Zoie and the group. I am very thankful--it is such a precious gift." - Catherine
"Zoie has been a god-send to me and my family. Her heart is for others and it's obvious in her work and her life. I couldn't think of anyone I'd rather have as a postpartum guide and doula - I am now eight months postpartum and she continues to hold space for me and my motherhood in a a way I've not encountered before. Don't hesitate to contact her!" - Sophie
"I was looking for how to structure my postpartum time for my second pregnancy. I left the course feeling all of that and so much more. I feel very empowered over my body and learned a lot of new things that I didn't know that my body could do, or that my body goes through during pregnancy and after the birth even though I've gone through all that once! I feel so knowledgeable and empowered. I feel so prepared with a concrete action plan with things I will choose to do or not do. I felt the course had a great balance between informational content on the technical needs of the female body as well as the open discussion on the role of the mother within a community, and the role of the community in supporting the mother-- and in doing so supporting the baby and future generations. Thank you so much Zoie."- Alix
