Our Mothering Circle is for pregnant mamas and mamas with babies in their first year postpartum. Whether this is your first baby or your sixth, we welcome you to join our circle where we hold space for you and support you in building a community. Mamas, babies, and wise women come together with the intention of embracing a gentle postpartum time. This is a safe circle where nurturing can truly be experienced by each mother and baby; where you can be open and vulnerable to share questions, tears, laughter, and fears. This is a place for learning, inspiration, and appreciation of you. Our emphasis is on building a community. We foster connection, and provide valuable education brought by caring Wise Women with expertise and life experience.
