sacred postpartum box
| sacred postpartum box |this box set includes all the botanical nourishment you need to nurture yourself through a sacred and restful postpartum.
during the first few days and weeks postpartum it is essential to rest, to deeply care for our bodies, and to stay in bed skin to skin with our babies. the sacred postpartum rest time influences your body's healing from birth, your baby's immune system and life long gut health, your own pelvic floor health for the rest of your life, breastmilk supply, emotional and spiritual reintegration from birth, mental health and postpartum depression, and physiological bonding with your baby. while our culture is deeply broken around protecting and honoring this time for women immediately following birth, we can choose to prioritize this sacred time and set ourselves up for nourishment, love, support, and rest during those first days and weeks.this box includes my favorite plant medicine products for creating a healing, nurturing postpartum experience.
