September is a busy month for us at FLOAT!
Abigail will be guest-teaching a support group, participating in a panel on Prenatal Wellness, and leading an acupressure workshop for couples here at our office. Read on, and please send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
9/9: HOLISTIC SELF-CARE FOR THE POSTPARTUM PERIOD at BINI BIRTH
Abigail will be the special guest at Bini Birth’s New Moms and Pregnant Moms’ Support Group (led by Rachel Myers) on Monday 9/9/13, 12:30-1:45pm. This group is open to anyone who is pregnant, recently gave birth, or is supporting moms in any way at all! Babies are welcome.
The Talk: Abigail Morgan, L.Ac, Licensed Acupuncturist & Herbalist and mother of two, will speak about holistic ways to take care of yourself during the postpartum period (birth-12 months), and offer a variety of techniques to bring balance to the crazy-insane-overwhelming time that characterizes the first year of a child’s life. Whether you are pregnant with your first child, just a few months postpartum, or getting used to being outnumbered, putting Mom’s health first is crucial for keeping the whole family happy – not to mention avoiding postpartum depression, baby blues, adrenal fatigue and Depleted Mother Syndrome. Come learn tips for what to eat, rhythms to incorporate, and home remedies for boosting Self-Care in the postpartum period. Abigail will also discuss ways you can prepare for a smoother recovery from childbirth while still pregnant.
Location: Bini Birth, 13743 Riverside Drive, Sherman Oaks, CA, 91423
Cost: $20 cash or check (made out to Bini Birth), same-day, or $110 for a series of 6 classes (every Monday, 12:30-1:45)
