Are you pregnant and would love to learn how you can best prepare for the first 6 weeks of motherhood (and beyond) so that you can thrive, not just survive??⠀
We all know how much time & energy it can take thinking about baby's arrival. We focus on setting up a nursery, buying clothing and nappies, stocking up on baby essentials like specially crafted baby wash & bottom balm. ⠀
But what about you?? The mum to be?⠀
When a baby is born, the focus is always on the new arrival and nurturing this beautiful new soul that has entered the world. ⠀
But so too, you, the new mother is born, and who will be nurturing you?⠀
Have you given much thought about that?⠀
Join us for a relaxed afternoon workshop where we'll be sharing our professional knowledge, experiences and wisdom on all things relating to postnatal health as well as the 5 secrets to planning a blissful postpartum! ⠀
This workshop is for you whether you're a first time mum to be, or this is bub number 5! ⠀
You will hear from me, Anne of Blissful Mothers (Postpartum Doula & Yoga Teacher) and Kirrily of Soul Tune Therapies (Kinesiologist, Exercise Physiologist & Massage Therapist) as we share invaluable tips and tools to help you understand your body's changing needs and how to best support yourself holistically.⠀
We'll be covering the essentials such as:⠀
• Building a support network - the who, where & how of practitioners, family and friends. ⠀
• Nutrition and its important role in recovery, healing and lactation.⠀
• Managing emotional stress and anxiety.⠀
• How you can naturally boost energy & reduce fatigue.⠀
• Sleep deprivation and tips to minimise the impact.⠀
• The best exercises for restoring posture, core and pelvic floor strength and when to start.⠀
Plus loads more, along with time for your questions!⠀
Tickets $40/person (spouse or partner welcome to attend free)⠀
Handouts and afternoon tea will be provided including recipes for some fabulous postpartum snacks and meals.⠀
Booking essential as numbers are limited. Call/email to book 0432 303677 firstname.lastname@example.org⠀

Tongue diagnosis 👅
As a Chinese Medicine practitioner, I use the tongue as a diagnostic tool with my clients. Did you know your tongue directly reflects your internal health!
Stick it out and have a look 👀
Here are a few things we look at: - Pale colour: this means Blood deficient which can present as dizziness, fatigue, palpitations, poor concentration and memory and menstrual problems.
Scalloped tongue / teethmarks down the side: this means you are Qi (energy) deficient and your digestive system is weak. Can present as fatigue, poor appetite, worry and overthinking.
Red tip: this is heat rising, and possible Qi stagnation, so repressed emotions; stress, anxiety, anger, can be irritable, PMT for women, trouble falling asleep
DM me a picture of your tongue and I will help diagnose it 👅🤗
Dinner on Saturday night, celebrating Rachel’s & Simone’s birthdays in Noosa ❤️ I had the crispy fried pork hock with coconut rice, green mango and sweet smoked fish salad with tapioca crackers! The others had the beer battered fish & chips. We had stunning beach views, the restaurant was lovely & the service was great!! I wish I’d taken more photos that night but I was too busy stuffing my face & having fun!! #food#foodpics#foodporn#friends#besties#bffs#birthday#love#girlsjustwannahavefun#noosa#girlstrip#30
