The 8 week Sacred Pregnancy Journey course is the start up series to the 4 week Sacred Birth Journey course, taken later in your pregnancy (see calendar for dates!).
Your Sacred Pregnancy is a journey.
Sacred Pregnancy classes hold space for pregnant women to connect with one another and their pregnancy experiences in meaningful and personal ways. These groups are being held all around the world and are the new wave of the pregnancy + birthing future. We are hell bent on changing the birth conversation as Sacred Pregnancy classes bring back the age old tradition of women sitting with one another during pregnancy and birth, getting empowered, witnessing each others process and BEING there for one another during an incredibly power-FULL rite of passage…becoming mothers.
Sacred Pregnancy classes are a special place for pregnant women to gather together, for 8 weeks early on in their pregnancy journeys and again for 4 weeks toward the end of their pregnancies. Each week is spent exploring pertinent topics that naturally arise for most women as they walk down their pregnancy paths and encourage deep sharing, exploring art, expression, laughter, honoring and celebration.
If you are pregnant and want to join a Sacred Pregnancy class, contact Jennifer Stroh at firstname.lastname@example.org or 714-396-6944. Classes held at South Coast Midwifery.
