Becoming a new parent is just as much about giving birth as marriage is about planning the wedding
There’s so much more to becoming a mama that no one bothered to tell you, like…
- Navigating complicated new dynamics of your family
- How “sleep like a baby” might not be the most accurate expression out there
- Introducing food to your baby isn’t as straightforward as it may seem
- Babies and rashes go hand in hand: diaper rash, eczema, cradle cap and more
- That it can be normal to experience some pretty scary thoughts
and so much more
As soon as you are visibly pregnant you aren’t able to go anywhere without hearing the unsolicited advice: the grocery store line, your co-workers and family.
Do you wonder how you are ever going to find your footing as a new parent and learn how to confidently make the decisions that are best for you and your family?
That’s exactly what this summit is all about: helping you navigate the tough decisions new parents face every day with a side of support from other moms who have been there.
Postpartum Mental Health- why you are feeling anxious and may be having scary thoughts
Feeding your baby- whether that is breastfeeding, chest feeding, formula feeding or introducing solids
Pelvic floor health beyond kegels, and help to reduce leaks
Healing after vaginal birth and Cesareans
Infant sleep and what “sleep like a baby” really means
Birth Prep- how to feel in the driver’s seat for your delivery
Pregnancy- feeling your best mentally and physically
Baby- what toxins are the biggest concern for growth and development
All brought to you by experts, pediatricians, dieticians, psychologists, naturopathic doctors, lactation consultants and physiotherapists. Did we also mention that most of our speakers are mamas too?
And while a car seat might easily cost you $200+, this summit is absolutely free to attend.
WHEN YOU TUNE IN FOR THE NEW MAMA SUMMIT, YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:
THE New Mama Summit
IS ALL ABOUT BRINGING YOU EXPERT, GUIDANCE TO HELP YOU MAKE DECISIONS THAT FEEL GOOD AND ARE GOOD FOR YOUR BABY, TOO.
30+ experts over 4 days will share the guidance mamas like you need to not only survive new motherhood, but to thrive!
This is especially for you if…
- You’re equally excited and terrified of the new responsibilities and challenges motherhood brings
- Googling doulas, colostrum, colic, and mastitis has your head spinning
- You’re ready to go all in on a toxin-free childhood for your baby but are totally overwhelmed by the options and array of products out there
- Introducing foods is stressing you out?! What is baby led weaning anyways?
- You’re out-of-your-mind-excited to meet your little one, but feeling completely unready for them to arrive
Wherever you are in your new parenthood journey, from early pregnancy to watching your baby take their first steps, our lineup of experts are ready to help you make informed decisions that feel good.
Meet your Host
Hi, I’m Dr. Alexis Reid, a naturopathic doctor, toxicologist, chemical engineer, and creator of Eco Chic Movement, a non-toxic skincare line for moms and babies. Most importantly, I am a mama to my 3 year old son Harvey.
In my practice as a naturopathic doctor, I saw so many parents who were struggling to care for their baby’s skin, and was well versed in how to manage eczema, rashes, breakouts and other skin conditions well before I became a mama myself.
However, despite years of helping new parents with this particular area of parenting, I still had A LOT to learn. I underestimated how difficult breastfeeding a baby with a tongue tie, and food allergies would be. I thought I would recovery fairly quickly and didn’t anticipate how long postpartum recovery really takes. I was always “on the anxious side” but didn’t know the wide variety of ways postpartum anxiety can present like rage and intrusive thoughts.
I don’t want you to have to figure it out all on your own the way that I did! I created the New Mama Summit to help babies and new parents get off to the very best start, and learn from experts without having to scour the internet or make heads or tails of the copious advice given in mom groups.
I want you to join us!
The New Mama Summit will run from Monday, October 17th to Thursday, October 20th with a variety of presentations to choose from each day.
From the comfort of your own home, mama! You know that lovely new glider chair you bought for the nursery? That’s a perfect spot, or choose to tune in while pumping, baby-proofing the house, or right after one of your well-deserved naps. You can tune in from any computer, tablet or phone with access to the internet. Easy!
Presentations will be 25-40 minutes in length because we know you’re busy, so we’ve asked our presenters to get right to it. The presentations will be available for 48-hours so you can catch them no matter where you are in the world (or when your baby wakes you up for the 7th feeding of the night).
MEET + MINGLE WITH OTHER MAMAS
You’ll also have access to a private Facebook group just for new parents where we’ll get to hang out before the summit starts, so you can meet other attendees and catch some exclusive livestreams too, once the summit kicks off.
PARTIES + PRIZES
Ever been to a virtual baby shower? You’re invited to ours, with AMAZING prizes from great brands. None of the cleanup or awkward games, all the gifts. Come on in and join the fun
THE ULTIMATE MAMA BUNDLE
After registering, you can also upgrade your free ticket and grab the Ultimate Mama Bundle, an upgraded summit experience with access to all day live panels with our speakers on Friday October 21st, where you can get your questions answered, unlimited replays, juicy bonuses from our speakers to keep the learning going, and the podcast version of the summit’s presentations so you can listen anywhere, anytime. You won't want to miss it!
Finally an online conference to support new mamas
There are lots of opportunities for education in the parenting space, so what makes this summit difference?
First, this summit was created specifically for new moms and birthing parents from the early stages of pregnancy to their first year. This isn't general advice for any parent out there, and will focus specifically on the decisions that need to be made and challenges faced in the earliest stages of parenthood. This is exclusively for first-time parents (or second-time parents who want to fill in the gaps and have an easier early motherhood experience this time around), at the beginning of their baby’s life. Every single presentation is focused on supporting you as you step into the beautiful, messy, hilarious, exhausting role of a new parent, making the presentations a whole lot more impactful.
Check out our amazing speaker line up of expert pediatricians, chiropractors, psychologists, naturopathic doctors, and more!
