Your Sacred Pregnancy is a journey. Our classes hold space for pregnant women to connect with one another and their pregnancy experiences in meaningful and personal ways. Sacred Pregnancy groups are being held all around the world and are the new wave of the pregnancy and birthing future. We are hell bent on changing the birth conversation as Sacred Pregnancy classes bring back the age old tradition of women sitting with one another during pregnancy and birth, getting empowered, witnessing each others process and being there for one another during an incredibly power-FULL rite of passage…becoming mothers.
Each week is spent exploring pertinent topics that naturally arise for most women as they walk down their pregnancy paths. We encourage deep sharing, exploring art, expression, laughter, honouring and celebration.
Pregnancy is one of the deepest drinks life has to offer. Each woman’s pregnancy pot gets stirred with various emotions and we all need a safe place to process those tides.
We want to take the pregnancy and birth conversation through winding unsure roads, down unbeaten paths, out on adventures, for a slow dance, get sexy beautiful with it, down and bloody with it, cram it with herbs, tears, passion, love and fresh perspective, crack it open for new rays of sunlight to shine down and help enlightened visions grow, and mostly have fun pouring over all this juicy goodness together, in the new sisterhood we are creating!
