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)
