the workshop

 I am fascinated by the natural way the human body works. I believe that our bodies have everything they need to heal and maintain health. Some days are good and some are bad, but mostly, in order to conceive and start to grow a baby you have to be in relatively good health despite how easily or challenging becoming pregnant was for you.

It is as natural as the trees shedding their leaves, the ocean hitting the shore or how you grew that lovely head of hair all by yourself.

YOU ALREADY HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO HAVE A MAGICAL., UNASSISTED AND EMPOWERING BIRTH.

In these workshops we take a woman-centred look at the biological and emotional aspects of your pregnancy. We'll talk everything  pregnancy, childbirth,  4th trimester and beyond. My goal is to give your body and you baby the best chance of a safe, enriching and empowering birth and to carry that power with you into motherhood.

We start as we intend to finish, and how we show up as a mothers is deeply tied to pregnancy and our birth experience.

I want you to step into Motherhood knowing you have what it takes to be brilliant (even on 4 hours of sleep)!

WHILE OUR COURSE IS WOMAN- CENTRED AND WE ENDEAVOUR TO EQUIP YOU TO HAVE IMPORTANT CONVO'S WITH YOUR PARTNER OR BIRTH COMPANION, THEY ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US FOR THE INFORMATION PORTION OF THE WORKSHOP, ON A DROP IN BASIS AT $40 PER DAY, YOU CAN PAY IN CASH AT THE STUDIO OR WE CAN SEND YOU AN INVOICE.
