Pillars of Postpartum

Not sure how to plan for the postpartum time? There's a lot to consider, but with some thought and preparation you can set yourself up ahead of time to be more prepared for what's to come.

In this class, Dr. Michelle Haggerty walks you through the 5 pillars of postpartum:

  • Rest
  • Nourishment
  • Physical support + movement
  • Community + relationships
  • Environment + time in nature

You'll get a printable guide to create your own postpartum care plan that covers all 5 pillars. This can also help prepare your partner, friends, or family members for how they can best support you as a new parent during this time.
