Sacred Pregnancy Weekend Retreat

 

Sacred Pregnancy retreat overview

Our 2 day Sacred Pregnancy Retreat is for pregnant Mamas who understand that the transition to Motherhood is one of the biggest events in their life (even if this is not their first baby). We will hold space for you to explore and share all that this means to you. The complex, the conflicted, the confused, the elated, the magical and everything in between. ALL of you is welcome here.  

 

How do I know this is for me?

You are looking for something more. For a way to deeply connect with yourself, your baby and other pregnant Mamas who are also about to transition into Motherhood. You might have experienced a challenging fertility or pregnancy journey and feel the calling to restore balance, calm and peace into your pregnancy journey. You are open to exploring topics around pregnancy, birth and parenting that run deeper than physiology, and connect deeply with your emotions and feelings and let go of fear and limiting beliefs.   

 

What will I experience?

We will talk, craft and explore topics around:

  • Creating sacred rituals and practises to connect with yourself and your baby

  • Your expectations around pregnancy and birth

  • Honouring your relationship with your changing body

  • Letting go of fear, embracing forgiveness and giving yourself permission to step into your power

  • The four pillars essential to postpartum support

  • Building your village of Mamas who will walk alongside you in motherhood
