What is Sacred Pregnancy?
Sacred Pregnancy is a beautiful and unique way to honour the journey from pregnancy to birth. This 2 day mini-retreat or 8 week class held once a week focuses on preparing pregnant women for birth through connecting to the emotional and energetic self. The intention of the course is to leave with a newfound sense of confidence in your body’s intuitive knowing to birth, creating sisterhood that can be carried through to postpartum, and a lighter heart released of fear, anxiety, and concern for what rests ahead. We aim to reignite the sacredness of pregnancy & birth that has been lost in our current culture and truly honour pregnancy and the entrance of women into motherhood.
What happens during the retreat?
