Village Prenatal

The Village returns in September.

Village Prenatal is a time for pregnant women to gather and receive support and nourishment from "village" elders.

The "elders" gather out of selfless service to support and encourage the instinctual life of pregnant women who are trying to birth in power against a modern current of fear and an environment of many interventions.

We are grandmothers, mothers, sisters, midwives, aspiring midwives, doulas, nurses, doctors, yoga teachers, psychiatrists, pharmacists, energy and body workers, ministers and anyone else who cares deeply about simple and sacred birth.

We are here to help her:

Nourish her body, baby and spirit
With support, encouragement and inspiration
Bathe in a sense of belonging
Trust her intuition
Strengthen her confidence in her body – that it has all the right answers
Believe in herself – no one has her knowing
Do it her way
Speak her Truth
Find a place of peace to make her own decisions

We do this through sharing a nutritious vegetarian lunch, talking circle, stories, meditation, and more.
