The Necessity of Postpartum CareElder Apothecary
April 22nd from 11 am to 1 pm
Caring for Postpartum Mothers is a lost art in our culture. As a woman, giving birth is the greatest physical, emotional, mental, spiritual journey we will likely ever experience.

This class will lay out the five basic tenants of postpartum care as dictated by our physiology and cross-cultural traditions. All are welcome, pregnant mothers and their partners, postpartum mothers and those serving and supporting women through the childbearing continuum. Empower yourself to have a nourishing and supportive postpartum experience, prevent postpartum depression, anxiety and physical degeneration by learning the foundations of postpartum care as dictated by our physiology and cross-cultural traditions.
This class will serve as an introduction to a 4-part series for pregnant mothers and their partner’s. Our first three classes will occur prenatally, outline in detail the needs of the postpartum mother, baby and family and will walk you
through creating a personalized plan for your early postpartum time. Our fourth class will occur once all families are 6-weeks postpartum. This will be an
opportunity to gather again in community and celebrate your Rite of Passage into Motherhood— whether this is your first or fifth baby.
Come connect with other pregnant mothers and receive knowledge that perhaps you know within, know that you deserve and know that you desire.
Attendees at this class will receive a discount for the series.
A bio from the teacher:
My name is Adderly Bigelow. I am a Mother to two young boys, an INNATE Postpartum Care Provider and a Wise Womb Somatic Therapist.
I offer in-home postpartum care that includes bodywork, emotional support and more. I have an in-office healing practice to serve womb carriers at all stages of life to address menstrual & fertility related symptoms and recover at any stage postpartum through hands-on uterine massage, awareness practices and breath based movement.
In all my offerings, my motivation is a prayer for our remembrance of what lives in our bones, in our blood, is our birth-right to know and experience.
