COMMUNITY CARE FOR MOTHERS

WITH LOTUS ARGALL & RAFFERTY HALLOWS

JOIN US FOR A TRANSFORMATIVE 90-MINUTE MASTERCLASS DEDICATED TO EMPOWERING MOTHERS THROUGH THE ART OF COMMUNITY CARE.

Whether you're a mother navigating the complexities of postpartum, hyperemesis, crisis, or significant life transitions, or you are a mothercare provider working as a doula, midwife, or peer support, this masterclass is designed to equip you with invaluable tools and insights to foster a network of support and healing.

Throughout the masterclass:

  • We'll delve into the profound significance of ceremony and ritual in nurturing community bonds.
     

  • Discover practical strategies for accessing meaningful care, even in the face of financial constraints
     

  • Explore the dynamics of giving and receiving, embrace vulnerability, and learn the art of asking for help when you need it most.

At the core of our discussion lies the belief that investing in the community you desire to inhabit is essential for personal growth and collective well-being. Community care isn't just about receiving support—it's about actively participating in the creation of a more compassionate and interconnected world.
