INNATE's Planning for the Fourth Trimester Course is for pregnant Mothers and families - to prepare for a nourishing, regenerative postpartum period.
This course focuses on the 5 Essentials of Postpartum Care - which are found throughout the world's postpartum traditions AND are deeply rooted in women's physiologic and psychologic design.
"At the very least an (postpartum) action plan intends to increase awareness to offset the inherent challenges of adjusting to life with a new baby. A best practice approach is to include the mother's support team, especially involving her partner. If the mother feels supported, she is less likely to be at risk for perinatal mood disorders such as anxiety and depression."
~ Jane S Savage, PhD, RN, CNE, LCCE, FACCE
In this class you will:
Learn the 5 essentials of postpartum wellness
Create and fortify your support networks
Develop a postpartum plan that meets the needs of your unique family
In a society which now generally associates the word "postpartum" with the word "depression", the need for a solid postpartum plan that includes postpartum care is necessary.
A Postpartum Plan is your plan to prevent and mitigate the common stressors that put people at higher risk for Perinatal Mood Disorders and to cultivate health and wellness LONGTERM.
The first part of INNATE’s Planning for the Fourth Trimester Course happens PRENATALLY. Information/education about postpartum physiology and psychology is shared, and each family is supported to develop a postpartum plan that meets their unique needs.
The final part of the course happens in the postpartum period. The families that participated together in the first part meet again, once everyone is at-least 6-weeks postpartum. The purpose of this final class is for MOTHERS and Fathers/Partners to be WITNESSED and CELEBRATED by this community.
In this way, we bring honor and a layer of completion to our rites of passage into Motherhood and Parenthood.
In this class series you will:

INNATE Postpartum Care works from the foundational understanding that: maternal health is foundational to society’s health. When Mothers are healthy and well, families are healthy and well. When families are healthy and well, communities are healthy and well – and this concentric ring of wellness continues to move outward to encompass the whole of the Earth. In optimally taking care of the Mothers, we are taking care of the future generations.
