Julia Jones specializes in teaching professionals how to support the postpartum time by merging the two realms of science and the ancient Ayurvedic tradition. She teaches students from all over the world, sharing her wisdom on supporting new moms in the transformation into motherhood. In her specially curated program called Infant Mothers she utilizes brain science, anthropology, evolution and traditional medicine. You can find her at https://newbornmothers.com/ to learn more about her, purchase her books and learn about her offerings.
Julia joins us in speaking about a big topic: the revival of postpartum care. We hit many different points and angles, in the conversation from patriarchy to neuroscience. She explains the importance of the postpartum period and the impact of the loss of knowledge from cultural traditions. We discussed how to move forward from this story of lost knowledge, towards changing the modern paradigm of postpartum care. Julia speaks about how creating strong support networks of care for postpartum mothers, and the postpartum doula profession in itself is a radical push for social change.
