This is a difficult time to be pregnant or a mother of a new baby! Let's soften the blow of this coronovirus time on mothers and babies, especially babies whose nervous system is still mylenating (first 6 months of life). I am offering an hour of connection and co-regulation for mothers and babies. Join me each Monday at 10 am Eastern Time, US. Start your week off with regulation of the nervous system, and then practices of the week for you and your baby.
Each hour will include:
- Opening Meditation
- Social Visiting with Moms in Small Groups (groups of 3 will be in breakouts to connect and check in)
- 20 min co-regulation exercises, information, healing practices
- Questions and Answers
Kate White will lead mothers in co-regulation. We may also sing and connect with intention to help our nervous systems regulate. She will also offer things mothers can do with their babies and partners.
