Creating Your Village: a Postpartum Retreat

  • Milkworks 5930 South 58th Street Lincoln, NE, 68516 United States (map)

A refreshing and delectable retreat, focused on preparing for your peaceful postpartum in refreshing and practical ways before your new bundle arrives.

Based on concepts from the First 40 Days and ancient cultural postpartum traditions we have put together a one day retreat for the pregnant mama who wants to refresh and renew herself physically, mentally and emotionally before birth and prepare for the most peaceful postpartum possible. We believe the arrival of a new baby is one of life's most precious and challenging moments and thoughtful preparation is essential.

You will walk away from this retreat  refreshed, renewed and full of healthy, nourishing food, as well as practical tips, tricks and ideas to make the smoothest transition possible.

Who This is For: Pregnant Mamas (both first time and experienced mamas welcome!)
