Sacred Pregnancy Mini-Retreat

Sacred Pregnancy is a beautiful and unique way to honour the journey from pregnancy to birth. This 2 day mini-retreat  focuses on preparing pregnant women for birth through connecting to the emotional and energetic self. The intention of the weekend is to leave with a newfound sense of confidence in your body’s intuitive knowing to birth, sisterhood that can be carried through to postpartum, and a lighter heart that is released of fear, anxiety, and concern for what rests ahead.


What happens during the mini-retreat?


  • Opening ceremony: Mindful gathering of participants and facilitator to check-in, make introductions, and prepare for course offerings.
  • Sacred space: Explore creating a personal sacred space at home, meditation practice + the benefits of journaling (you will create a collage candle)
  • Connection + expectations: Explore connection to yourself, the baby and the pregnancy experience + discuss your pregnancy expectations (you will create a sisterhood connection art piece)
  • Food + body image: Explore cravings, mindful eating, body changes + challenges (you will create menu cards  + experience witness dancing)
  • Relationships + romance: Discuss relationship shifts, romance and keeping the fire lit! (you will start to create HEART art, which your partner will help you finish at home)
  • Fears: Holding space to discuss all fears relating to pregnancy, birth and motherhood (you will burn your fears + do group EMPOWERMENT silk painting)
  • Forgiveness: Find the strength to forgive past hurts allow emotional space to open up BEFORE baby comes (ripping free + binding your pregnancy power “spirit stick”)
  •  Honoring: We explore emotional nesting, gender bias and mother blessings (personal power blessings + essential oils soak with flower crown creation)
  •  Sisterhood “ going to the bowl”: Join in with the sisterhood circle to allow deep reflection of the experiences shared together and going forward (going to the salt bowl)
  • Closing ceremony


Investment: $250. 


Cost includes all course materials, nutritious-healthy snacks, and vegetarian lunch, plus a lovely keepsake bag with a journal, Sacred Pregnancy book and items picked specifically for you to keep your learning and memories alive after the weekend.
