“The Postpartum period begins immediately after the birth of a child, can sometimes be referred to as the 4th trimester.”

As well as it being an incredibly special time the postpartum period can host many challenges. It is no secret that it can take both mum and baby a while to adjust to their new life and feeling overwhelmed and out of your depth is quite natural.

While you are recovering physically and adapting to caring for your new born, support through this period is a necessity. Nobody will have all the answers for you and yes, it is true, you must learn on the job but there has got to be a better solution to helping you navigate through this period than frantically googling every day. This is where Its Motherhood comes in!

The aim of our 'Navigating Postpartum' course is to provide you with the essential information all new mums need (or may not necessarily know they will need) in those early days, weeks and months after giving birth. Knowledge is power and being informed of the potential challenges you may face and how to overcome them can only be a positive! We want to alleviate as much of the strain as possible and in turn promote good mental health.

Don't look at this course and as an educational lesson look at it as a handy guide to staying positive and informed during the challenging period that is the 4th trimester! To put the course together we have selected eight excellent professionals who are extremely credible within their field. Listen to our lovely professionals talking to you in a light-hearted way. They will be sure to uplift you and hopefully make you realise that this can be the most rewarding journey if you allow it to be.

Whether this is your first or fourth baby, sit back, relax and let our course provide you with the tools you need for the journey ahead with your new born for a small one off fee of £35.00
