Postpartum Healing is Vital

The postpartum time is also known as the "fourth trimester" because of how essential it is to support your body in its return from pregnancy, to a non-pregnant state. Many cultures observe the time after birth as sacred. In other parts of the world, it is common for an entire community to gather to support each mother during the first 6 weeks after birth by protecting the space around her from distraction, need and stress. It is all about the mom and baby bonding and recovering from an incredible journey.
