We are excited to open our registration to a WellMama Wellness Workshop-Processing Postpartum Transition through Writing and Art

The transition into being a new parent – even when you already are a parent – can transform your daily existence and sense of self. 

In this workshop we will use writing, art, sharing, and discussion to process and explore the various stages of that transition. 

All experiences and emotions are welcome, and you don’t need to be a writer or artist to participate! 
Sharing is encouraged but not required.

This will be a four part workshop. 

Be sure to register to receive a writing and art kit. Spots are limited.

Our society often does not provide space for processing the deeply important experience of birth. Whether you experienced a joyous or traumatic delivery of your baby, there is no denying that this experience can deeply change your identity. In this workshop we will use writing, art, sharing, and discussion to explore the various stages of your personal birth story and what it means to your transition to parenthood. All experiences and emotions are welcome, and you don’t need to be a writer or artist to participate! Sharing is encouraged but not required. 

Food & Mood: What we eat impacts how we feel

This wellness workshop is all about perinatal nutrition and its relation to perinatal mental health. Come learn the latest evidence-based recommendations plus practical tips regarding how our food, especially during pregnancy, can shape mental wellness during postpartum and beyond.
