Postpartum Sexual Health Reintegration
Sexual health is an essential part of the birth process and it is essential to learn how to honor and integrate it before, during, and after pregnancy. During the postpartum phase we can easily become disconnected from our sexuality due to multiple societal influences birth and parenthood. Simultaneously, we get wound-up tight in ways we have never been before due to birth injuries and new daily movements (or non-movement) in caring for an infant. The time after birth is new mental and emotional territory that requires a type of support that is not often available in our society.
This workshop breaks the mold of the typical “get your body back” messaging aimed at postpartum people and replaces it with an empowering philosophy for every body. Built on values of intersectionality and body positivity, this class aims to equip you with the knowledge and inspiration you need as you step into the next phase of your life. This workshop will help you get your body and mind feeling juicy and inspired during this critical time of growth and transformation.
Envision life after birth.
