Educación y apoyo posparto 

Putting Parents First

A través de nuestra distribución de paquetes de atención posparto, muchos miembros de la comunidad expresaron la necesidad de más educación y apoyo para las personas que experimentan el embarazo y el posparto. En un esfuerzo por continuar apoyando las necesidades de bienestar reproductivo de las mujeres, Love Your Menses se complace en ofrecer un grupo de apoyo y educación posparto virtual GRATUITO de 8 semanas para mujeres embarazadas y posparto negras y marrones que viven en Boston, MA.


El período de recuperación posparto es el momento en que una persona se recupera de los cambios cruciales que ocurrieron en su cuerpo durante el período prenatal hasta el período de parto. Este tiempo es muy crítico y necesario. Las investigaciones han demostrado que el apoyo social es eficaz para ayudar a las personas que dan a luz a sobrellevar los factores estresantes psicológicos y físicos en el período posparto.  

Este año, hemos apoyado a 200 personas negras y marrones con un paquete de atención posparto. Esperamos expandir la distribución a otras ciudades/pueblos en los EE. UU. y en todo el mundo. 

En este grupo de educación y apoyo habrá:

Sesiones educativas quincenales
círculos de hermanas
Charlas grupales con doulas posparto y obstetras/ginecólogos
Paquetes de atención posparto y otros obsequios
¡y mucho más!


El programa tendrá lugar de enero de 2022 a mayo de 2022.

1. Was postpartum education helpful?

Yes, the postpartum education I received was incredibly helpful. It provided valuable information and support that I needed as a mother, especially considering that this was my first time having a baby in the USA. The classes covered a wide range of topics, including breastfeeding, nutrition for infants, and the importance of self-advocacy in the healthcare system. These topics were not only informative but also practical, helping me feel more confident and prepared as a parent.

2. How has it contributed to your parenting, even though this is not your first baby?

Even though this was not my first child, the postpartum education classes were still highly beneficial. They gave me the opportunity to refresh my knowledge and learn about any new practices or guidelines specific to the USA. Additionally, it provided a supportive community of mothers from diverse backgrounds, which allowed me to exchange experiences and gain new perspectives on parenting.
The classes also emphasized the importance of self-care and mental well-being, which is crucial for parents regardless of whether it's their first or subsequent child. This focus on self-care has had a positive impact on my parenting by reminding me to prioritize my mental and emotional health, ultimately benefiting both me and my children.

3. What were the key takeaways from the postpartum education classes?

Some of the key takeaways from the postpartum education classes included:

*The importance of breastfeeding and normalizing nursing in public spaces.

The significance of nutrition and healthy food preparation for infants.

The value of advocating for oneself and one's child in healthcare settings.

*Building a supportive community of mothers from various backgrounds.

Creating a safe space for self-expression and vulnerability as mothers.

Understanding what to expect when having a baby in the USA, especially in terms of healthcare and cultural differences.

4. Would you recommend childbirth education to other moms?

Absolutely, I would wholeheartedly recommend childbirth education classes to other moms. These classes not only provide essential knowledge but also create a supportive and inclusive environment for mothers to connect and share their experiences. It's a valuable resource for both first-time parents and those, like me, who have had children before but are navigating new circumstances. Childbirth education helps build confidence and promotes positive parenting experiences.
