Teacher: Krystina Friedlander
This class takes place on September 2nd from 2:30 to 4:30pm
The first three months of the postpartum is a wild ride: our bodies are recovering from pregnancy and birth, we’re feeding our babies, adapting to little sleep and just generally experiencing “the new normal” of having a baby, whether the first or fifth! Join midwife and herbalist Krystina Friedlander as we explore the “fourth trimester” drawing on traditional medicinal ways of understanding postpartum recovery, and herbs and foods that promote healing, rest, and recovery. These will include herbs to address healing tissues, food and herbs to balance hormones and lactation, herbs to comfort and calm, and more.
