GATHER IN THE SOIL FOR PRENATAL AND POSTNATAL CARE!
Studies show that digging in the dirt can uplift your spirit. The friendly bacteria, Mycobacterium vaccae, present in the soil stimulates serotonin production, acting as a natural antidepressant. We believe the lack of understanding around prenatal and postnatal care has resulted in isolated, overlooked, and overwhelmed mothers, and that “postnatal” is not a stage, but forever. The SLO Botanical Garden offers a safe space (and plenty of healthy soil) to help us connect to our bodies, our littles, the natural world, and each other. Including snacks, activities, and care for little ones, join us for grounding in your pregnancy and lifelong postpartum journey.
This program is facilitated by Victoria Carranza, The Gardening Doula.
This class is FREE for all members and $10 for the general public. Prenatal and postnatal parents, along with their children, are all welcome! Registration is available online through the link below, or in-person at the Gift Shop.
We look forward to seeing you! Please bring water, comfortable shoes, sunscreen, snacks and messy play clothes for your children, and an optional blanket or mat if you’d like to sit on the floor.
