About The Event
Welcome to "Embodying Motherhood"! A weekly postpartum group to support mothers at any stage; through connection, education, and healing practices.
Nattalia from Birthwyse and Cher from Dragonfly Maternity will be co-facilitating the sessions, along with guest speakers through the year. A variety of themes will be covered, with four live sessions per month (in studio and online options available) and virtual check-in's between each session to offer continued support.
At the start of each month, we'll be inviting guest speakers in from the professional community to talk about various topics of motherhood, share their expertise in their field, and answer questions from the group. Each week, we'll be building upon that theme with tools & resources to support the topic, discussions around what is coming up individually + collectively through motherhood, ways to implement the practices into daily living, and rituals & ceremonies to embody these resources through all levels of our Being -- body mind and soul.
