Event description

Description

Wild Was Mama will host a lively conversation on the Rite of Passage that is the path of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Come celebrate the birth of the newly released books by Lindsey Bliss, of Carriage House Birth, and Kimberly Ann Johnson, of Magamama—birth doulas, mothers, and mother advocates. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A and book signing, and both books will be available for purchase.


About Lindsey Bliss: Lindsey Bliss is the co-director of Carriage House Birth, a collective of birth workers that provide doula support and education for families pre-conception though their childbearing journeys. She is a birth doula, and mother of seven. Trained by DONA (Doulas of North America) and Carriage House Birth certified, Lindsey is greatly sought after and considered to be a multiples expert after giving birth and breastfeeding two consecutive sets of twins.

Her interest in childbirth began at an early age. Present while her mother taught childbirth education classes at their home, Lindsey was able to state, identify, and point out a uterus on a natal chart at the age of two and a half. Fast forward to the present, Lindsey takes her role as a birth doula and childbirth educator with serious passion and commitment. Her mission is to hold space or offer gentle, nonjudgmental guidance and support for expectant families through education and informed decision making.

About Lindsey’s book, The Doula’s Guide to Empowering Your Birth:

The Doula's Guide to Empowering Your Birth covers the period from pregnancy through labor and birth to fourth trimester healing. The focus, however, is on preparing for birth--including topics like how to pick the right childbirth class and the right birthing method. You’ll also see how to assemble the team of professionals, family members, and friends who will support you through labor and birth, and how to approach last-minute decisions about pain medications and cesarean sections.

About Kimberly Ann Johnson: Kimberly Ann Johnson is the founder of Magamama.com, an international holistic women’s health care resource for expectant and new mothers. She is the cofounder of the STREAM School for Postpartum Care, where she trains birth professionals, yoga teachers, somatic therapists, and bodyworkers to help women prepare for, and recover from, birth. She conducts workshops and trainings internationally and online, teaching thousands of women and birth professionals about postpartum care, self-care for new mothers, and sexual health.

About Kimberly’s book, The Fourth Trimester:

Pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum offer women some of the most emotionally enriching and satisfying experiences of their lives. But many new mothers are shocked from their lack of awareness and preparation for what that means for their bodies, minds, spirits, and relationships.

In The Fourth Trimester: A Postpartum Guide to Healing Your Body, Balancing Your Emotions, and Restoring Your Vitality, Kimberly Ann Johnson has created a comprehensive guide that offers women a roadmap to this very important transition that can last months—or even years. Johnson offers practical advice to support women through postpartum healing on the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual levels to cover: how you can prepare your body for birth, how you can organize yourself and your household for the best possible transition to motherhood, simple practices and home remedies to facilitate healing and restore energy, how to strengthen relationships and aid the return to sex, learning to exercise safely postpartum, carrying your baby with comfort, exploring the complex and often conflicting emotions that arise postpartum, and much more.
