SALTY MAMA: Journey into Motherhood

SALTY MAMA: Journey into Motherhood

‘It is said that women in labour leave their bodies... they travel to the stars to collect the souls of their babies, and return to this world together.'

The journey of motherhood will rock your world forever. And that is why it is so important to feel supported as you move through it.

Welcome to Salty Mama, Journey to Motherhood.

Content, information and conversations we, the mamas in the Salty Club, couldn’t find ourselves, but desperately needed as we navigated the challenges and shifts of new motherhood.  Our intention with this program is to provide a 360 degree approach: to support your body, mind and soul throughout your whole pregnancy, and the several months following the birth of your baby.

In this package you will find;

- A 220 page ebook that will invite you to explore the spiritual and emotional underworld of your journey, complete with personal stories, information and journaling exercises.
- 3 meditations, ranging from total relaxation to energy healing
- 2 breath work sessions, for everything from clarity to relaxation
- 10 yoga classes that will take you from connecting with your baby all the way up to postpartum recovery and nervous system support
- 7 prenatal and postpartum workouts
- 7 interviews, ranging from choosing your birth care, all the way up to the identity shifts and emotional challenges of having children
- 3 informational videos, focusing on 1, diastasis recti, taking care of your pelvic floor, and postpartum care
- A booklet full of pregnancy friendly recipes
- And an informational booklet on what to pack in your birth bag

It is our hope this package will help you refine your truth; as you nurture yourself, as you equip yourself with information, as you empower yourself through the stories of other mamas; How can you write your own rules about what it means to be a woman and mother?

This isn’t a rule book, it's an invitation to do motherhood on your terms. 

You are magic, mama.
