'Rest, digest and enjoy' is one of our core anchors within our mission. We want to help parents and their newborns live postnatal life in the ‘rest and digest’ way of being – to lesson adrenaline and cortisol levels to regulate the parasympathetic system in the body. When this happens, relaxation and contentment occur, along with healing and regeneration. The body supportively performs activities like digesting, detoxifying, eliminating, and building immunity. At The Pudding Club we believe knowledge is liberating, that understanding nurtures relationships, informed choice creates confidence and all of these aspects support the ‘rest and digest’ way of life – components that are essential for a newborns positive development, and a family’s mental and physical health.
Our precious innocent newborns need us to know what to do with them. They rely on us to know, and yet far too often in the past many parents have not known for they have not been taught. The Pudding Club is highly motivated to see this lack change for the benefit of our young, their parents, their whanua and our nation.
