With an overwhelming response to the
Postpartum— Life After Birth series,

I’m thrilled to be bringing you this new audio offering to help you navigate the ‘next steps’ in your baby’s first 12 months — and your first 12 months as a mother.  

Featuring six new interviews with industry specialists, we’ll dive deeper on the specific ways both you and your child can thrive in this all-important first year.

THE POSTPARTUM PERIOD IS A TIME LIKE NO OTHER. 

And I get it. As a mother of three children — after welcoming a third son in early 2019 — being on the ground with my own postpartum journey this year has not only helped me define exactly what you need to support yours, but has amplified my mission to ensure this essential information is readily available for you.

Here’s what others are saying:

 

“Postpartum Life After Birth came at the best time for me. It was at the end of the '4th trimester' where the visitors had slowed, my partner was well and truly back to work and I needed to find a balance and learn my new normal. It has helped me feel supported and give advice in uncomplicated, gentle way ensuring me all I was feeling was 'normal'. I have since recommended it to all my pregnant friends.”

– Nicola

“I’ve loved Postpartum Life After Birth! I purchased when my bub was about a week old (I wish it was available earlier!) and 3 months on I’m still going back to it and listening, I have listened to all the interviews over and over because each time I pick out bits relevant to what’s happening now. Thank you so much for what you do.”

– Jill 

“Thank you so much for putting this series together. I listened to all six sessions as soon as it was released, 10 months post birth of my first baby. The session on post natal depression and anxiety really resonated with me and helped me to take the first step to see a psychologist about my own mental health. Thank you so much for the work you do, I’ve learnt so much and can’t wait for my next pregnancy and birth.”

– Aliese
