for a well-rested life
Good things take time. Welcome to The Harbor. Take all the time you need.
Mother-Child Attunement Based Playgroup
Coming this Summer, join a group of mothers for coffe, dharma talk, and play. Children will receive access to a supervised playroom, mamas will receive a chance to grow, learn, give and receive support.
Playgroup is held in a mindful playspace in Redondo Beach. This is a chance to separate (a bit) from your children while you connect with community. Your children remain on-site, just across the room and behind a glass wall, while you work on yourself.
Best suited for children ages 18months – 6years. Limited to 8 children & their mothers.*
*As this work heavily relates to the mother-child bond, it is limited to mothers. However, this group is open to all mothers regardless of birthing status and gender identity.
If you’re writing out a birth plan, you need to be writing out a postpartum care plan. I can help you prepare your home for the arrival of your child, whether it is your first or your fifth. Postpartum plans involve the five key needs of the mother:
- Nutrition for energetic recovery
- Planning for rest
- Incorporating breath and meditation for mood support and the prevention of mood disorder
- Yoga and bodywork for pain relief and physical recovery
- Nervous system support to solidify your attachment and caregiving
As a post partum doula and lactation educator, I can help you plan for your needs in the first forty days. You will have the tools and support to be an attuned, present caregiver while you heal and transition through the fourth trimester.
