“I felt overwhelmed and tired. I haven’t put myself first since motherhood. I was unhappy with my life. Before ... I felt depressed hopeless.
Over the weekend I’ve gained self-confidence and a clear vision of what I want. As I leave the women’s wellness weekend I feel hopeful and relieved.”
New motherhood is full of beauty, warmth, and love.
It’s also brimming with spit up, blow outs, and sleep deprivation. On top of that, being a postpartum mom, caregiver, and partner, can become isolating.
It’s difficult to be patient, connect deeply, and feel okay mentally/emotionally when you’re exhausted and damp.
That’s why I started planning the Women’s Wellness Weekend Getaway.
This time last year, my then six month old was wearing me out, and I needed a bit of adult conversation, nourishing foods, a massage, movement, and rest.
I needed to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and hear that it was possible I’d sleep again one day soon.
Last Fall, you shared how helpful a daytime event would be for moms with small babies. Instead of having to manage a big change in routine, and packing in all the nighttime gear; you and your littlest can come connect with other mamas and babies, during this full day self care event in Leipers Fork, TN.
Childcare will be available on-site during the breakout sessions.
We will come together, build relationships, and support one another. We’ll share ideas on Surviving and Thriving in the Messiness of New Motherhood.
We weren’t made to do this alone!
It doesn’t have to always feel so tough.
Come relax, hit the refresh button, then head home renewed with tools to manage all the things with more presence and EASE!
