We're back in today's Postpartum University podcast episode with another unpopular opinion.

And that's the idea that actually no, making postpartum sacred isn't a "woo-woo" thing.

Get ready to bust through common misconceptions about embracing the sacred in postpartum.

This is part 1 of a 2-part series.

In this episode, we're sharing:

  • Why making postpartum sacred isn't about pursuing esoteric or unattainable ideals. Why it has nothing to do with the birth experience. And why this transformation deserves care and reverence.
  • How making postpartum sacred is not impossible simply because of the demands of modern life. How even in our technology-driven world, we can still find sacredness in this profound transformative time.
  • The history of the transformative journey into motherhood and how the postpartum period has been revered, recognized, and celebrated by cultural heritage practices around the world.

We'll wrap things up by diving into an understanding of how patriarchal practices in our society have shifted social norms and what we can do to hold the threads of wisdom, tradition, and reverence.
