Post-Partum Group: New Mums' Circle

Processing Labor and Birth

We wait 9 long months to finally meet our baby. We imagine and sometimes fear the birthing process and we usually develop expectations on how we want it to be.

Like a lot of other things related to motherhood, when we get to live the experience on our skin, it might be something completely different from what we dreamed.

The experience of giving birth is raw, primal, rough, sometimes empowering and sometimes very disappointing even traumatic, both from a physical and a psychological point of view.

No matter what kind of birth you had and no matter how you feel about it come and share your experience with other mums or mums to be, to celebrate our bodies, to validate your feelings and to let your emotions flow.

Babies are as usual more than welcome and snacks and tea/coffee will be available.

Single attendance 25 CHF

For more info you can contact me directly: francesca.baracchi@gmail.com

Why my baby does not sleep?

The aim of the seminar is to help expecting, new and also not-so-new parents to choose how and where to sleep peacefully with their children, in a way which possibly fulfills the needs of the entire family.


In order to do so, during these two hours, we will talk about the physiology of sleep, the scientific evidence behind the sleep pattern of small children and also about the myths that are associated with that.


We will discuss different approaches to cope with sleep deprivation and some practical strategies to help you deal with bedtime and frequent awakenings with calm. 

Prices are 60 CHF per person / 100 CHF per couple

Places are limited. In order to reserve please send me an email and I will send you the enrollment form (francesca.baracchi@gmail.com).
