Prepared Postpartum – Workshop

June 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

How often we are solely focused on our birth experience that we forget to prepare for the vulnerable and often overwhelming postpartum journey. Yet early postpartum is a crucial time and truly important, where you face the evolution of your new life while your nurturing and caring for your new baby.

Super excited to let you know that we teamed up with other Professionals from the field to provide an in depth, interactive workshop, filled with practical tools, suggestions. A bit of an eye opener on how life might be going to look like with a new little bubba in your life.

We are on a mission to provide you with an army of practical tools and tips and resources to help you ease into motherhood with confidence and feeling supported even when things aren’t as expected.

Covering some important topics like:

– importance of building your village, helpful guidelines and practical tools to create one around your birthing times

– changing relationships

– self-nurturing and nourishment

– importance of rest, and oxytocin

– traditional healing practices

– nourishing traditions, healing postpartum foods

– when to ask for professional help?

Snacks and  light refreshment will be provided.

Testimonial from previous workshop attendee:

“The workshop was a very welcoming, safe, and peaceful environment for both mums and partners to come and listen, share, and ask lots of questions. They also served a nice, healthy, morning tea!
It was a good refresher of the birthing process for my second baby, and I also learnt  things that I didn’t know before, for example; healthy foods that promote lactation, how much food to prepare and freeze for after the birth (to take away the stress of cooking), what a doula is and the doula services available in Nelson, and helpful tips for healing my body after giving birth. All the ladies are very lovely and easy to talk to, and has so much knowledge to offer. 
I would recommend the workshop for all mums to be, and their partners.”          (Midori O. – Nelson)


Our Speakers:

Marta Willis

She is a mother of two, a Holistic Practitioner, Postpartum Doula with a Diploma in midwifery. She has been working with mothers on a daily basis for more than a decade. It is always a great privilege to be involved in a mother’s journey and to hold space for them, listening to their stories. As a postpartum doula her main focus is to nourish and nurture the mama’s body and soul; enabling them to exist in their ‘oxytocin bubble’, and to enhance their motherhood journey. She knows having an extra pair of helping, healing hands during this sacred transition from maiden to mother can have a lasting impact on a mama’s emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing. She is specialised in traditional postpartum practices, such as belly binding, and womb warming practices, and postpartum massage.


Aline Candish

Aline is a qualified Naturopath, Remedial Massage Therapist and Postpartum and Birth Doula, specialising in preconception and pregnancy care, birth preparation and postpartum support. Being in the natural health industry for the past 12 years, it has become evident to her that there is a huge missing piece in the postpartum support system and a lot of mothers are really struggling. Through further study, she has developed a huge passion for supporting women on their journey in early motherhood, nurturing them through this important and sacred time. Her mission is to create a warm and safe space where a mother has the time to tune into her baby and follow her intuition as a new mother.



Frances Minogue

Frances is the owner of “Golden Time Doula”. She is a skilled chef and a postpartum doula. The calling for this important role as a Doula has been in the background of her life for many years. After having two very different births and postpartum experiences within 21 months of each other, she experienced overwhelming exhaustion and PPD, with no family or village to support her. During this time she realised how important it was to have education about what body and emotions were doing during post-partum times. She believes the fleeting time that unfolds after birth should be MAGICA, not stressful and exhausting. She is here to nurture new mothers through nourishing food, and help them to achieve a more relaxed postpartum times for their whole family.
