Next TPG Meeting

Thursday 5th, September 2013

Speaker: Allison Evans
Topic: Thriving in the postpartum period
Location: TBD
Time: 11:00am - 1:00pm

"In our culture we believe the postpartum period is necessarily brutal:  no sleep, sore nipples/bottom/belly, hormones making you crazy, both mother and baby crying, no time even to shower. . . .  The postpartum period has such a bad rap that the word alone is becoming synonymous with 'postpartum depression.'  
"In fact, that’s a big, fat, dirty lie, and it’s time to start disbelieving it.  Yes, it’s true that sometimes it is brutal.  But, my friends, it doesn’t have to be.  Postpartum depression is not universal; it is cultural.  In some cultures it does not exist.  You can create a culture for thriving postpartum right in your own home!  With the right attitude and a good deal of planning, it is possible to have not just an un-brutal postpartum period.  You can have a magical one.
"Learn the Five Keys to Thriving Postpartum with Martha Beck Certified Life Coach and HypnoBirthing practitioner Allison Evans."

Breastfeeding classes for new mums and mother to be


As a lactation consultant, midwife (certified in France) and a mother of a three year old (just weaned) I would like to offer to breastfeeding mothers and mother-to-be some classes to talk, share about breastfeeding, baby's cares....
I believe that mothers groups are very useful when you just give birth, especially in a foreign country!
Classes will be every first and third mondays each month (first one on October 7th) from 10:30am-12:30pm in my place in Azabu Juban.
I will ask JP¥1,500/per class as participation fees (Sweets and drinks included :) )

Please email me for more details:
