Six local practitioners are collaborating to offer Emerged, a “holistic postpartum program for new mothers.” A spokesperson said, “Six local practitioners will team up to offer Emerged, Bermuda’s first holistic postpartum support program for new mothers with babies 0-6 months.
Starting today, new mothers with babies up to six months old have begun a new programme designed to offer them holistic support they may need as they adjust to parenthood. The six-week programme, Emerged, is the brainchild of Kristen Scott Ndiaye.
Zoe Kempe-Gibson was riddled with anxiety after her son, Archer, was born. She had to have an emergency Caesarean section because the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck. That Archer was born on April 5, the second day of lockdown, only added to her emotional upheaval. As a result, the first-time mum didn’t sleep for seven straight nights.
