As a Newborn Mother, you are being invited to reinvent yourself because when a baby is born so is a mother, and the birth of a mother can be more intense than childbirth. You'll learn how to find peace and joy in the first 40 days after birth and how your postpartum experience can change your life.

Jenny Allison is an acupuncturist whose passion for the last 25 years has been women’s health, studying, teaching and working with women and mothers using acupuncture and Chinese medicine. She has trained in this area with traditional practitioners in London, Sydney, Nanjing and Hangzhou.

Her interest in the care of mothers after childbirth began after she graduated from Acupuncture Colleges Australia and gave birth to her first child. She learnt about the postnatal traditions of her own multicultural family, and began talking with mothers and grandmothers from other parts of the world, discovering the importance of good care for the well-being of mothers and babies in these societies. At the same time she found her training in Chinese medical theory was helpful in interpreting their practices. She decided to record her experiences so that women from all over the world could share their knowledge and learn from each other, and in 2016 published the book ‘Golden Month, Caring for the World’s Mothers after Childbirth’. She continues to interview mothers and midwives from different cultures around the world as part of her commitment to preserving this heritage of women’s wisdom and improve the care of all mothers in the postpartum.

Jenny has two grown-up children, is a grandmother of new twin girls and practices acupuncture and Chinese medicine in Auckland, New Zealand.
