Strength in Community: FPC Workout + Conversation with Babu About Building a Postpartum Sanctuary

Motherhood is a time is like no other.  A new mom is experiencing major shifts in her body, her mind and her heart.  She is transitioning out of being pregnant, recovering from birth, navigating her relationship, bonding with and learning to care for a newborn and figuring out how to care for this new version of herself.  It can be sweet and peaceful, but is too often chaotic and overwhelming.  Even though our culture values “bouncing back” and doing it all on our own, the reality is that doing so can cause long term energy depletion and other challenging side effects.  Your community can help you plan for a joy-filled postpartum period and be right by your side during that sacred time.  

Come join FPC and the Babu team for tips on how to build the right community and create a postpartum sanctuary in the midst of our busy city lives, so your family can get off to the very best start!

 A portion of the proceeds will go to support Every Mother Counts!

Ask a Doula

What’s a doula? What do they do? My partner will be at the birth so I don’t need one, right? Is a postpartum doula different than a birth doula?

Have you asked yourself any of these questions? If so, we’re here, with our very own expert panel FPC instructors (Jessica, Erin and Maddy) who happen to ALSO be trained doulas!

Join us for snacks and sips on the couch as we spend the evening picking their brains about what doulas do and why they come so highly recommended at FPC.
