Avatar lukapostpartum
  • How ancient postpartum traditions throughout the world—while specific to the cultural context in which they come—all share deep common roots, pointing to the importance of an extended resting period, warmth, specific foods and bodywork after birth. That many of these traditions also teach that how a mother is cared for during the postpartum time—will profoundly be reflected in her health through menopause and beyond.  And that these commonalities of postpartum traditions throughout the world are not a coincidence—because they are rooted in our physiologic design as humans.
  • Postpartum care from the perspective of traditional teachings of midwifery, woven together with the modern sciences of Epigenetics, Pre and Perinatal Psychology, the Primal Continuum, Psychoneuroimmunology, Woman-Centered Physiology and Anatomy, Somatic Psychology, Neurobiology and much, much more.
  • The ‘WHY’ behind postpartum care. When we understand ‘WHY’ we do something, we understand the reasons and purpose of it.  When we understand the reasons and purposes of it, we begin to value it.  We come together in INNATE’s training to understand ‘WHY’ proper postpartum care assure health and vitality through menopause and beyond. This ‘WHY’ is what has been largely forgotten in modern culture and postpartum care; even when the ‘HOW’ is remembered.  When we interweave the ‘WHY’ of postpartum care with the ‘HOW’ to optimally offer this care, the dominant cultural paradigm of ‘postpartum care as luxury,’ begins to shift to ‘postpartum care as necessity.’
  • About the profound changes that occur through the childbearing continuum; understanding the implications of physiologic appropriate postpartum care- for women’s life-long health.

INNATE Postpartum Care is in honor of the ancestral wisdom of humanity and dedicated to the future generations. We offer perspective on the postpartum period not found in many of the resources currently available.

We understand that traditional medicinal knowledge and practices can create social healing, AND THAT this traditional medicinal knowledge is stored within our blood memory, within the Earth, Air, Water, Fire, and Cosmic Mind. The more we heal ourselves—the more ACCESS we have to his knowledge. We understand ancient postpartum traditions are based in our physiologic design, and offer to us a blueprint of everything we need in order to thrive as newborn families.

What is shared in INNATE's Training is more important now - then ever.
