cesarean recovery workshop

Sunday June 25, 1:30pm-4pm

at happy baby in El Segundo

For women who have experienced a planned or unexpected cesarean birth, this workshop provides the space for emotional and physical healing.  As with ANY surgery, there can be emotional trauma, stagnation and scarring which can serve as reminders of joy, elation, gratitude, pain, grief, fear, or lack.  During our time together we will:

  • create a sacred and safe space to share our birth stories
  • be reminded of our wholeness
  • gain and share tools for sitting in and moving thru our healing
  • move our bodies
  • self reflection
  • learn + perform external scar tissue massage

Workshop will take place at happy baby in El Segundo.  $40 per person.  Pre-registration is required and can be done by clicking HERE
