"I feel really empowered after the workshop...I would definitely recommend it." Aimee, North Fremantle, 2011, expecting her first baby
Being a new mum is awesome, but it can also feel lonely. It’s easy to celebrate your new baby with people, but who do you share with when you feel exhausted or overwhelmed?
A recently born mother whose strength is asking for support. She acknowledges that the birth of a mother is even more intense than childbirth, and that she is as sensitive and vulnerable as her baby. Her heart is wide open and her needs are high. As she nourishes herself, she nourishes her children.
A newborn baby, a newborn mother
A mother is born with every birth and you will be as sensitive and vulnerable as your new baby. Traditional cultures around the world nourish mothers and babies for forty days after birth. As mother and baby you share breath, heart rate, body temperature and emotions, and a happy mum makes a happy baby. But in our country most mothers say they feel exhausted and overhwelmed, and 1 in 6 experience Postnatal Depression.
Do you want support, confidence, health and love?
Do you worry about:
- Caring for a toddler and a newborn or twins or more?
- Coping when your partner goes back to work?
- Getting the support you need if you live away from your family and friends?
- Recovering from a complicated, long or caesarean birth?
- Feeling too exhausted to enjoy caring for your baby?
It is time we all asked for the help we need. There is so much pressure on getting it right, when instead we could be getting in touch. Be part of a cultural shift that will benefit all mothers, all babies, everywhere.
"I'm expecting my first baby in 3 months and I'm becoming increasingly anxious of how I'll cope once my partners goes back to work (he works fly-in fly-out), especially as all my family are in Melbourne. The workshop acknowledged that new mums need as much support as their bubs, and discussed practical ways to build that support around you." Emma, expecting her first baby, 2011, Mt Hawthorn

"I came to the Free How to Beat the Baby Blues Workshop because I was facing some challenges in regards to support, or lack of, towards the end of my pregnancy and wanted any tools available to help with my upcoming motherhood. I was very unaware of what parenthood would bring but I knew that I found certain things hard to deal with and the prospect of a new baby would only intensify these uncertainties.
I found the workshop very fascinating, Julia bought stories from around the world on how new mothers are treated and cared for. I listened to what Julia spoke about and took my action plan home and placed it away until my baby came. After my daughter was born the information Julia had given me became invaluable, the basic principles of Food, Sleep and Sex have now become a staple in my day. I don’t feel guilty for making time to look after myself because I know it will help me be a better mum and look after my baby. I can only imagine I would have ran myself ragged within the first week if I hadn’t attended the Newborn Mothers workshop.
I recommend the workshop to all mothers wherever they are in their pregnancy or parenthood. I am constantly trying to pass Julia’s secrets of looking after yourself to other mothers and think the service she is providing is amazing. If you get a chance to attend one of her workshops or use her services do."
