The Postnatal Support Network organises Helpers training all over Europe. This training gives both ancient and contemporary knowledge and practical techniques on the 40-day recovery time.

The training includes include the following subjects:

  • Why postnatal support
  • Principles of a 40 day resting period
  • Physiology of the postnatal mother and child
  • Cooking and recipes
  • Other techniques such as postnatal rituals, bed sharing, massage
    and baby bundling.
  • The Postnatal Service, the attitude and what kind of support.

This training is set up for anyone who is interested to make an important difference for young families. Health workers, doula’s, yoga teachers, grandmothers and young women who are inspired to learn more about the techniques and would like to serve in a dedicated way and has considerable time and flexibility.

The basic training takes two or three 3 days and is organised all over Europe. You will be asked to do a minimum of 2 week postnatal service with a family close to your home. Including in your training fee, you will receive a manual and a year membership of our network.

At the moment, there are no trainings planned. Let us know if you are interested to participate in our training so that we can inform you once a training is booked.

A three day training in the Netherlands (Eindhoven) is on the 6th-8th of April 2018 and in France (Paris) the 8th – 10th of June 2018.
