About this Episode

Rest is not a luxury after birth, it’s a necessity. But in a modern world that is not set up to support new mothers, it requires resources and knowledge to make a postpartum plan that works. Here’s what you need to know. Be inspired by what Carla did different the second time when she knew how critical rest, hands-on-support, and community is for optimal healing after birth. We talk about navigating the first year postpartum with gentleness and solid support. How critical postpartum preparation is, and the major cost to women who aren’t prepared for postpartum both physically and emotionally. We dive into what you must include in your postpartum care plan, and the myths about arriving at 6-weeks postpartum. We unfold what it looks like to support the greater journey through your first year postpartum, as you are after all “postpartum for life” as Robin Lim has said.

What 'Cycle Wise' Means
In this short solo-episode I speak the vision and the hope that is Cycle Wise. To get us started on the Cycle Wise journey, I want to lay the foundation for this podcast by sharing what Cycle Wise means, and the seeds I am hoping to sprout and root through these conversations. Our cyclic bodies are here to mature us into elders one day, and before that preparing us for each season of life before we stand in it. There is so much available to us – and Cycle Wise is about making the journey through the pilgrimage place of your body. And along this journey, we need women’s stories. Cycle Wise stories.
