Pregnancy circle is a place to connect with others as you navigate your changing body, birth options, and prepare for life with a new baby. This 8 week community building experience is a virtual circle of 5-10 pregnant people who will meet online weekly for 75 minutes. Participants are welcome to join in any trimester and can be welcoming their first child or an additional child into their families. This is a closed cohort of individuals to allow for greater sharing, commitment and connection. The circle is strengthened by diversity, openness, vulnerability and sharing and is an inclusive community for parents and families of all kinds.
“Pregnancy Circle helped me remain centered and focused during what could be a very stressful time. No one can prepare you for pregnancy and birth, but knowing that you have a supportive community to share your experiences with makes everything a whole lot easier.
Using the physical and energetic bodies as our foundation, you will receive:
– Opportunities for support + sharing
– Guidance around preparing for birth and postpartum
– Tools for embodiment and coping
– Self-inquiry practices and journaling pages for deeper reflection
– WhatsApp group for deeper connection throughout the circle
– A reading and listening guide of birth & postpartum resources
Each week we’ll dive into a new topic in our virtual space:
Week 1 || Rooting into Community // Introductions + Building the Circle
Week 2 || Womb Journeys // The path to pregnancy
Week 3 || Reclaiming Power // Making Confident Choices
Week 4 || Head and Heart // Preparing for Birth
Week 5 || Finding your Voice // Advocacy
Week 6 || Intuition // Learning to Listen & Trust
Week 7 || Building toward Bliss // Preparing for Postpartum
Week 8 || Integration and Closing
**We’ll also have one in-person gathering to be scheduled as the circle forms.**
