Slow Postpartum™ Mentoring with Jojo Hogan

Personalised 'virtual doula' support to help you create and enjoy a positive and peaceful postpartum sanctuary in challenging times

Congratulations - you are expecting a new baby in your life and this should be an occasion for happiness and joy.

However, worldwide we are now living in a time of uncertainty and this may be leaving you in a place of anxiety and fear about what the future holds for you as a new mother or parent.

Perhaps you are worried about being isolated away from friends and family at a time when you should be 'gathering your village' to care for you. You may have concerns about who will be there to support you as you travail the pathway into parenting at a time when everything is changing.

Maybe you had planned to have a doula or family members be present for you but now know that this will be impossible for the next while and you are looking for other options so that you are able to create a plan to enjoy your postpartum with your new baby.

I would love to be there to support and guide you through this unsettling time.

We Were Never Meant To Become Parents In Isolation, Away From Community And Loving Mentors And Guides

None of us could have anticipated the strange new world that we are all living in right now.  However one thing is certain, pregnant and new mothers and parents all need and deserve the utmost love, care and attention. It is imperative so that they are able to bring their newborn babies into a world that is peaceful, respectful and full of tender loving care. 

The postpartum weeks are so important yet often overlooked.

The transition into motherhood and the 24/7 care of your newborn will challenge and transform you on every level whether you be a brand new parent or are welcoming a subsequent baby into your family.

And like all other major life transitions it is vitally important to have loving, non judgemental support and guidance on hand to help you navigate this path.  

"To do a Slow Postpartum™ is to focus on the things and the people that truly matter to us."

 —Jojo Hogan

Were You Looking Forward to the Birth of Your Baby but Now Worried About What the Future Might Hold if You Don't Have The Support You Need?

Over 15 years of working with and caring for pregnant and new mothers I am now deeply concerned about the lack of support that many new parents will experience in a time of isolation and lockdown with their newborn baby.  

Because of this, if they do not properly plan for the postpartum weeks without 'village care' they risk experiencing : 

  • Exhaustion and acute sleep deprivation
  • Postpartum mood disorders including anxiety and depression
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • A breakdown in their relationship as both partners struggle with the transition into parenthood
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Physical pain and discomfort
  • A lack of support and care from their community
  • Breastfeeding issues

But it needn't be this way...  

Women and partners who invest time and energy into planning for and being supported during their postpartum weeks have a different story. They report feeling nurtured, nourished and less stressed as well as more confident, prepared and satisfied as new parents. 

Even Though So Much Has Changed, It's Still Possible To Get The Help That You So Deserve Following The Birth Of Your Baby

But it's important to understand that a positive postpartum experience needs to be thought about and planned for in advance during pregnancy so that you are prepared with the care and knowledge that you need.

Postpartum planning and virtual support in a time of uncertainty is the key.

Now, more than any other time, you and your partner (if you have one) will be needing support and guidance so that you are able to create a postpartum sanctuary filled with happiness and love rather than stress and exhaustion.

"To do a Slow Postpartum™ is to focus on the things and the people that truly matter to us."

 —Jojo Hogan

Choosing a Slow & Supported Postpartum with your New Baby.

While many new mothers & parents will be struggling through their postpartum weeks during this time of crisis, there is a big opportunity for those who see the sense in doing something different — in choosing an alternative way.

By thinking about and investing in a positive and supported postpartum they will mitigate many of the issues and stresses that can arise when things are not unfolding as expected.

These mother, partners and parents see that, given the right support, there maybe a rare chance to slow down and re-evaluate this period of time as one of deep rest, rejuvenation and transformation. 

The Benefits Of The Slow Living Movement

All around the world and through this current crisis, some people are seeing the benefits from living their lives more intentionally — by taking the time to slow down and live more mindfully.

It's about choosing to do and have less and making our lives more spacious and relaxed, so we can create the time to focus on the things that are truly meaningful to us.

The Slow Living movement has much to teach us about what is important to us and offers insights and wisdom as to how we might accept things as they are, simplifying our world.

For new mothers, this way of living is often key to mental & physical health and wellbeing but there will certainly be challenges along the way.

At this time it is helpful to have an experienced and caring guide on your journey.

  • Imagine feeling fully supported by an experienced and compassionate friend and mentor so you can become the mother you truly want to be
  • Imagine feeling prepared and confident for what is to come as together you make a postpartum plan and brainstorm challenges.
  • Imagine feeling a sense of ease and peace in the weeks and months following your baby's birth knowing that your have personalised and    non-judgemental support at your fingertips.
  • Imagine feeling a sense of reassurance knowing that you have support even when you can't have your family, friends and 'village' to help you at this time. 

It Really Is Possible To Enjoy 

a Slow and Peaceful Postpartum Even When the World Seems Scary and Unknown.

A Slow Postpartum™ Planning Session

In such challenging times it becomes even more important to plan for a postpartum that will bring you peace, joy and happiness with your new baby.  In this planning session we will explore together the things that are truly important to you as a new family and what you can do to align your postpartum with your own personal values and parenting philosophy.  We will explore the challenges that you are concerned might arise and brainstorm solutions and support systems that will help to mitigate them.  At the end of this session you will feel more confident and prepared to enjoy the many benefits of a Slow Postpartum sanctuary in your home after baby arrives.

​Hi, I'm
Jojo Hogan

I am so delighted to have you here! It is my life’s work to care for, nurture and support mothers, babies and families.

In 2005 I created the Bella Mama Pregnancy Spa & Wellness Centre in Auckland where, along with my team of committed and compassionate therapists, we cared for over 10,000 pregnant mothers and families throughout the special journey that was their pregnancies, births and transition into parenthood.

After running Bella Mama for 14 years, I made the choice to devote myself wholeheartedly to the one-on-one focussed care of my mamas. 

As a qualified and highly experienced postpartum maternal care specialist (doula), mentor and educator, I will share with you what you can easily do so you can create a truly joyful and slow postpartum!
