It may seem like birth is the finish line, but it's only the beginning...

The biggest mistake expecting mothers make is solely focusing on and preparing for birth and not for the time after. This isn't your fault! The baby industry likes to paint the picture that preparation happens up until the birth and then nature takes its course after that. Believe it or not, pregnancy is probably the most predictable part of having a baby! Once you welcome your little bundle to the world, anything goes. You immediately jump into a whole new role where you have to learn how to to nurse and soothe your baby, heal yourself from birth and adjust to being a mom all at once.

You can't fully prepare for motherhood but you can certainly feel prepared. Do not leave your new motherly duties to instincts - they are important to have but will take you only so far. Instead, learn from mothers, health professionals and baby experts who have helped many mothers through the process before. Consider the 40+ speakers featured in this free summit your extended village. With the information shared in the summit, you will be able to lay the groundwork for your postpartum and get the insight you need to feel prepared for your fourth trimester and beyond.

Ready to feel like a Super Mom?

Here's just a few things you'll learn by tuning into the summit

  • What a proper latch looks likes
  • How to transform from couple to parents
  • When your baby's first developmental leaps will take place

The Fourth Trimester is pretty complex.

That's why we've broken it down into Three Pillars

Heal Your Body & Mind

Birth is the greatest natural change that any body can go through. While beautiful, it can lead to a number of challenges physically and mentally.

Learn what foods and practices will help your body heal with respect for the process you just went through.

Find out what you can do to support the ​mental and emotional challenges that come up postpartum.

Connect & Nurture Baby

We have this intense motherly instinct to take care of our baby but many times instinct isn't quite enough.

You want the very best for your baby and thankfully our baby experts know what to do. They will share how to encourage healthy and optimal physical, emotional and mental development for your little one.

Grow & Evolve Relationships

Becoming a mother means we become a whole new person.

Our self identity shifts, our relationship with our partners is challenged and ​our village is needed more than ever.

Find out ​how to navigate the new relationships with your partner, your village and yourself.

FAQ

What is the Fourth Trimester Summit?

The Fourth Trimester Summit is a gathering of 40+ speakers who will share what you need to know to enter motherhood with an "I can do this" attitude. You'll learn how to heal your body and mind, connect and nurture your baby as well as navigate the new relationship dynamics that come up for new moms.

Is this summit really free?

Yes, ma'am. The summit is free! All you've got to do is share your email with me and you'll get an email with a link to the summit workbook and in two days, you'll get links to access the sessions which you will have 24 hours to view. I believe wholeheartedly in giving every woman the opportunity to access this information because we deserve to give ourselves the best fourth trimester possible!

Will the information from this summit actually help me and my postpartum?

The short answer - yes. That's why I'm putting this summit on! The long answer - let me start off by saying motherhood is tough. We can use all the support we can get. No matter how many friend and family members you have to turn to, it is unlikely they will know about all of the topics covered and know what will work for YOU. Take a look through the Fourth Trimester Workbook (sign up to receive it), mark the speakers for topics you want to learn more about and tune in!

Where is this summit taking place?

Stop packing! The summit is entirely online and perfect for your less than mobile days. All you have to do is look for emails from me with links to view the sessions.

Is this summit right for me?

Honestly, I created this summit for my pre-baby self. I asked myself, as a holistic, natural, intentional and research savvy mama, what are all of the topics I would have wanted to learn about to prepare for my fourth trimester? I am so thrilled that I get to share it with like-minded moms like you! You can take as much or as little away from the interviews as you'd like. You determine how "right" this summit is for you.

I can’t watch all of the sessions in the ten days. What can I do?

My intention is to get you answers to your burning questions. Once you sign up, I'll send you an email with prompts to help you figure out which videos to prioritize each day. This will help you address your immediate concerns. If you desire to dive into all of the sessions, you will have the opportunity to purchase the Super Mom Bundle to get access to all of the sessions, as well as exclusive bonuses and special deals from our speakers and sponsors. You'll learn more about the Super Mom Bundle once you sign up.

WE'RE READY WHEN YOU ARE

Cut the overwhelm of new mommy-hood in half, learn how to bring your partner and village into the fold, and ENJOY those first's with your precious baby. Sound good?

Hello! I'm your host, Lisa.

I'm a holistic mama of two kiddos. After a 34 hour natural breech birth with my daughter, I experienced a (mostly) beautiful fourth trimester. When I started speaking to other moms, I realized that not many had a supportive, healing experience during those first three months postpartum. I created the Fourth Trimester Summit to support mamas in this often ignored period so they can heal wholly and naturally after birth and nurture their new baby with confidence. I brought together resources I used to prepare for my own fourth trimester as well as new experts who I wish I had known before!

These sessions offer the information I'd want to have to prepare for an ideal postpartum.

When I'm not wrangling spreadsheets or my kids, I can be found writing for my blog, Lisa for Real, where I explore and share my thoughts on fierce femininity, eureka moments, motherhood and lessons in self-awareness.


Brought to you by our awesome sponsors

YOU GOT THIS!

During pregnancy and birth, many things happen TO us. Reclaim your mind and body during the fourth trimester, feel confident in your mothering decisions and gather a village to support you.
