Healthy Mama Workshop
I’ll be back at Downtown ACAC on Saturday, November 7th as the featured speaker for the Pre-Natal and Post-Natal seminar series offering a Healthy Mama Workshop that begins at 11:45 AM.
Moms will learn safe and ergonomic postural considerations for both parent and baby while babywearing. Also, augment the breastfeeding bonding experience by caring for mom and baby’s back needs. This workshop will teach you how to stay comfortable longer while wearing baby–preventing spine or pelvis injuries on baby. You’ll also learn body support tips for the most common nursing positions, and caring for your baby’s back from infancy to toddlerhood.
Bring your baby carrier/sling and nursing pillow, if you use them.
