When I started Feeding Mama, I believed (and still do) that most of my customers would be birthing parents who were under the care of birth workers like Midwives and/or Doulas. Why? I believe that those folx would be more open to the traditions of our ancestors. And since Feeding Mama is inspired and stays within the teachings of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I thought it would be an easier sell. I might be wrong about this belief but for now that’s my approach.
Hosting an evening for birth workers is something that I had wanted since the beginning. I wanted to connect directly with birth workers in an intimate setting where they were being respected for the incredible value they bring for birthing parents.
And I can’t quite believe that evening is happening. On Tuesday, May 28th a bunch of passionate and caring folx who support postpartum services to birthing parents will speak to fellow practitioners about established and emerging support services.
Exploring The Fourth Trimester: An Evening For Birth Workers
On the lands of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territories, we invite Birth Workers to an evening to hear from practitioners who are passionate about supporting new birthing parents during the postpartum phase.
Come hear from fellow practitioners who aren't on the usual list of postpartum services, learn what they can offer and supplement your toolbox of support services for your patients.
The vision of the evening is to inform, educate and nourish.
We are going to feed you! Bring your own bowl, drinking vessel and sporks as we will be offering food that is gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. There will also be non-alcoholic beverages.
