MINDFUL MAMMA SELF CARE PACK
***EASING THE TRANSITION FROM BIRTH INTO MOTHERHOOD***
This simple online (and via app) pack has been carefully created to bridge the gap from birth to becoming a mother and into parenthood. It's a mindfulness, relaxation and hypnosis programme that offers new mothers some self care time to heal and rebalance themselves after the birth of their baby. Offering coping skills and the calm confidence to bond with their baby in their own time.
It's packed with simple yet effective techniques and ideas designed to allow a new family the time and practical skills to connect with and process those new emotions and feelings awakening once baby is in their arms. It can be accessed instantly and whenever it's most needed.
Created by 2 mothers and birth professionals with more than 20 years experience between them, this pack comes from the heart and with professional expertise.
Suitable for anybody, whether you have done hypnobirthing and mindfulness for birth/pregnancy yoga, or not, the audio files and video's are relaxing, healing and grounding.
It has the first 12 weeks in mind, but can easily be used far beyond that.

"With so much emphasis and preparation focused on pregnancy and birth, it is wonderful to see the 4th trimester being given such space in this wonderful programme. The transition into motherhood is a complex, emotional and challenging time for any new mother and this package gives women the tools to make this time a littler easier. As a mum of 4 and midwife I wish this had been around when I had my babies"
"It is about time someone made a mindfulness programme for new mothers. At this time of change it can be so easy to forget to look after yourself or become overwhelmed with anxiety. I'm delighted that Mindful Mamma is here to help women thrive as they enter motherhood"
"The early days of parenting can often feel fraught - with a new person to get to know, and so many new skills to learn! We can often feel overwhelmed during this time, with a pressure to 'get it right' alongside the discomfort of not knowing what we are doing. This course, designed to support parents during the earliest days of parenting, provides a number of deeply soothing tracks to listen to alongside comprehensive explanations about why they work. In particular, the 'healing' and 'parenting confidence' tracks can offer additional support on your more vulnerable days."
Firstly, we want you to feel that you can do this anywhere. You can do this in your nightwear/loungewear and you don't need to leave your house (or the hospital) unless you want to and feel ready. In bed, in the bath, on the sofa, or at the kitchen table, it's designed to be accessed on your phone, tablet or laptop whenever and wherever you are; there's even an App (Teachable).
Use it in the middle of the night, whilst feeding or if baby is crying and you need a few moments to cope. This is about you. You becoming a mother; be it the first time, or the 4th.
We use simple Mindfulness and basic Hypnosis techniques to enable you to quickly and easily learn to relax, let go and connect with yourself and your baby. After a few times listening to the tracks we provide, you will begin to notice that you relax more quickly and are able to be in the moment - accepting your thoughts and feelings as they are. It will allow you to move into motherhood from a place of awareness and understanding - confident in your abilities as a mother.
The pack is in 6 main sections, each containing video's, audio tracks and affirmations plus an ebook to download. There's also an introduction video and some self-care tips to help you ease into motherhood more comfortably.
The sections cover aspects of early mothering women have told us (and we have experienced for ourselves) are challenging. These sections help lay a foundation for you and your baby allowing you to continue your journey into parenthood on a stable footing and with tools that you will make use of for years to come.
We have broken the pack down into the following:
Sophie Fletcher and Sophie Burch have known each other and worked together for many years. Both are mothers (they have 6 boys between them!), and both have worked with mothers and babies from fertility through to parenthood for over 10 years. Both are passionate at helping pregnant couples and new parents have the best experience they can through the use of mindfulness, hypnosis, relaxation and more. This Programme was created after a conversation about the fragility of that time between birth and becoming a parent, and how there is a lack of support for new parents at a vital time of transition and healing. Both have taught, used and benefitted from the use of all the techniques gathered and shared in this Programme and seen the phenomenal results as a consequence in their lives, the lives of their babies, their families and the hundreds of couples they have taught over the years.
Sophie Fletcher is Author of Mindful Hypnobirthing, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Mindfulness Teacher, Doula and Mother of 2.
Sophie Burch is a Mindful Mamma teacher, Hypnobirthing Childbirth Educator, Baby Massage Instructor, Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist and Mother of 4.
