In today’s western cultures, the typical pregnancy focuses on the baby to the exclusion of the woman herself, so that the entire experience has become more about preparing for the baby’s arrival than looking closely at oneself to prepare emotionally for all of the changes that creating a new life brings. A Sacred Pregnancy mini retreat helps the pregnant woman journey within herself to prepare for the birth of her baby.
Your JOURNEY toward motherhood begins the moment you even think about wanting to have a baby…
If you are PREGNANT and want to connect with other women in sisterhood and discuss pertinent issues then you NEED to come to a Sacred Pregnancy class. If you feel CALLED to be included, please reach out! The Pregnancy Journey classes happen early on in your pregnancy, because we want you to have a space to start talking about important issues coming up for you WAY BEFORE you are even thinking about the birthing part of your journey!
The 8 week classes are about 2 hours once a week and are JUST FOR PREGNANT MAMAS! You deserve a sacred space all to yourself, and this is it!

This classes will support the mother to be and guide her to reflect on the many personal milestones of the full gestation period of a pregnancy. A Sacred Pregnancy class encourages the mother to be to record her thoughts and feelings. During the classes the mother-to-be journeys through an array of information on her baby, her body, and her spirit and she may find it beneficial to reflect on these topics.
A variety of topics/issues are explored such as sexuality, fears about labor, becoming a mother, courage, rite of passage, adornment, body image, meditation, and sisterhood to name a few. Mothers-to-be are invited to look deeply at the issues unique to their journey and find a centered, peaceful place to live their pregnancy fully.
A Sacred Pregnancy class encourages the new mother to record her birth story and to think about the resources on various birthing options and supports that the mother may wish to utilise.
Build your sacred personal strength and join a growing movement of other like minded women in your local community.
