The Birth of a Mother


An online course for expecting mothers who want to learn how to be adequately supported in the months after giving birth so it’s not only the baby’s needs that are being taken care of, but theirs too! 

When you’re pregnant, it’s easy to focus all your energy on your baby and lose sight of you. You prepare for the birth like a marathon, but have you thought about what comes next?

The birth of your baby is a huge milestone of your pregnancy. And what awaits you on the other side of that big event is the birth of YOU…as a newborn mother! An exciting adventure and one that can feel overwhelming as you adjust to the shifts that unfold in your mind, your body, your relationships and your everyday life. 

There’s no better time for you to understand and prepare for this transformation than when you’re expecting. Mostly because you may find it easier to absorb new information before your baby arrives as opposed to when you’re tired and dedicating your energy to recovering and getting to know your little one. And also because there’s nothing like feeling prepared as you’re stepping into a new phase of your life! 

The Birth of a Mother is a self-paced online course to help you navigate the first months after your baby’s birth with more confidence. It will help you: 

  • Explore your personal beliefs, fears and assumptions about motherhood and discover the transformative insight of Matrescence
  • Understand some of the physical and psychological changes you are likely to experience after birth and how to mitigate their effects on your wellbeing
  • Prepare yourself to manage the first few months after birth and get the support you need by filling in your postnatal plan

What’s included?

  • a series of mini audio recordings (75min of content in total)
  • editable worksheets to record your reflections
  • a step-by-step postnatal plan for you to fill in
  • a comprehensive list of online resources, books and materials to support you

Who is this for?
Expecting mothers at any stage of their pregnancy (whether they are partnered or solo, in heterosexual or same sex relationships). First time mums and also mothers who are pregnant for the second time or more and wish to do things differently this time around by getting the support they need. If you’re only coming across this course after you’ve had your baby, it’s not too late! The content will still be relevant for you to go through up to 6 months after the birth of your child.
