Every family deserves a restful, healthy and abundantly satisfying "fourth trimester." The truth is that appreciating the beauty of any experience is hard when you're sleep deprived, physically hurting, hormonal and perhaps feeling stressed out amidst all the change.  By mindfully planning for the special self-care needs of body, mind and soul in this demanding gateway season, you invest in getting the most out of the crucial window for spontaneous healing and recovery after giving birth.  You also make the most of your precious early days with baby, setting the stage for a lifetime of enhanced health, balance, and shared joy together.
