Our Pregnancy Support Circles meet virtually on Wednesdays at 7pm, on a drop in basis, and are open to all clients. No commitment required. Support people are welcome.

Topics include: 

  • Empowerment in the birth process:  How are you making your decisions?

  • Birth planning:  How do you communicate your preferences?

  • Self Care:  How are you caring for your body?

  • Confronting fears about giving birth:  How do you listen to your body?

  • Communicating with your support person/partner: How do you ask for what you need?

  • Fully benefit from your doula:  How will you “stay connected” to your birth experience?

  • Find humor in your journey:  How will you let go of things out of your control?

  • Practice finding comfort in discomfort

Our Postpartum Support Circles are organized into cohorts based on birth dates and run for 6 weeks, on Wednesday afternoons. Support people and partners are invited and welcome!

  • Re-connecting to your amazing body!

  • Feeding your baby and yourself…kindly

  • How are you finding JOY as you redefine your role

  • Figuring out what you need and how to ask for it–creating healthy family boundaries
