Grief, Trauma Introduction Workshop

This 60 – 90 minute lecture/workshop facilitates embodied calm and somatic awareness of oneself and the other. These awareness-building processes are a first step to meeting mothers (and yourself) with calm presence. We learn how to anchor calm states; to release and change difficult emotional states; recognize patterns that prevent us from being present; to develop a therapeutic lens that allows us to hold healthy boundaries while also being able to give as fully as possible and appropriate. 

 

Anti-Lactogenic / Lactogenic

In this one-hour PowerPoint lecture, I review anti-lactogenic foods, herbs, medications, and lifestyle influences, and then turn to the lactogenic foods and herbs, briefly reviewing the well-known reasons for their lactogenicity, and then turning to newer research and eye-opening explanations that are not yet written about or publicized. We then move into transition foods – those that prepare mammary tissue during pregnancy and early postpartum, and that enable mothers to have a more trouble-free start to lactation. Finally, we look at how these herbs and foods are used in treating UTIs and asthma, two common health challenges of new mothers.

The Mahmee Team is committed to providing excellence in care and the education that Hilary provided to our team during her lecture helps us to do just that. As a subject matter expert with vast experience, she offered guidance that promotes breastfeeding success as well as overall health. We found the information valuable for our patients and for ourselves!
