Embrace Motherhood Panel

In the extraordinary days and weeks after birth, baby still wants and needs to be snuggled in close, reassured by the steady beat of your heart. We created the Ergobaby Embrace especially for this golden bonding time, when the outside world fades away and the new journey of parenthood begins.

To celebrate the launch of this newborn carrier, we brought together an amazing team of mamas to talk the identity shift that women go through as they become a mother.  Embrace Motherhood: a panel on navigating the transition into motherhood and experiencing a happy and healthy fourth trimester.  The panel of experts included:

Abby Burd – Maternal Mental Health Expert & Psychotherapist

McLean McGown – Postpartum Doula & Motherhood Coach

Michelle Wahler – Co-Founder and CEO of Beyond Yoga

Jill Koziol – Co-Founder and CEO of Motherly

Kelly McKnight – Co-founder of Moms in Color

Moderated by: Elizabeth Antonia – author of Early Riser Companion

At the event, expecting mamas were pampered with delicious brunch, tarot readings by Michelle Tea, cooling facials from Weleda, and oil blends from Dani Hampton.  Mamas with new babes had the opportunity to try the new Embrace Cozy Newborn carrier with their little ones.  Our team of event brand ambassadors was on hand doing fittings.
