The Fourth Trimester
It is a special time, this last trimester! Some women find they love it, some find it challenging. No matter how your experience goes, I hope it is a period of time in your life that you feel prepared for (or as prepared as you can be, anyway!). There will be ups and downs, so much love, possibly a lot of emotions that are all very normal, sleep deprivation, and a rediscovery of WHO you are. The course has been framed around five basic principles: rest, nutrition, movement, bodywork, and community. I give much credit to women like Kimberly Ann Johnson (author of The Fourth Trimester) and Rachelle Garcia Seliga (founder of INNATE Traditions) for discussing these principles in their work. Our society strongly emphasizes the pregnancy and the birth, and I think it is high time that we emphasize the postpartum period as well. Thank you for joining me in this course, and I hope you find it worth your while!
