We have a wonderful way of making newborn baby care seem easy by bringing you back to the way nature designed this beautiful relationship to be!

We start the class from birth onward, discussing all the things your Willowsong Team will do to facilitate the physiological newborn stage. Come explore with us the concepts of the ‘Magical Hour’, the first hour after birth and the newborn’s nine instinctive stages; and NINO, ‘nine months in’, ‘nine months out’, and how it will influence your mothering for the first year post birth!

February Birth Circle

Free Event

February 11, 2019 at 6:30pm

We are often stressed, trying to balance home/work, mama/partner/self, career/hobbies. Maybe you are planning to go back to work and need some help navigating, maybe you are now a stay at home mama and feel lost, maybe you are having a hard time finding your "self" again. How can we create the balance we so desperately need in our lives? Join us.

Birth Circle is a cherished group for Willowsong Birth Clients only. A time for women to gather, without children or partners, to connect to their village. Connecting with our village is something we have begun to lose touch with in this digital age. As new mamas, it is so important to develop deep relationships with other women. The relationships you can create here can last a lifetime, if you dive in.

Birth Circle topics are pertinent from birth to about one year post birth, however we never "outgrow" the topics. You will learn so much and connect with your core village of support and wise women that have gone before you.

If bringing your babe is helpful for you to attend Birth Circle, babes in arms are welcome to attend through 6 months of age or until they are mobile. We want our mamas to be able to deeply connect with each other and focus on themselves. This is a cherished time that we all need and deserve so much.

**A call to seasoned mamas. Please come back to birth circle, our pregnant and new mamas need to hear from you!**

Conscious Birth Prep Class: physiological birth - the roots, design, and wisdom of the body!

Free Event

April 20, 2019 at 10:30am

Many women come to us with a desire to reconnect with their very own birth wisdom, but really have no idea what that is! They may never have seen another woman birth without intervention or perhaps outside a hospital. All they know about birth is what is depicted in the media. Often, they look to their mothers, sisters and grandmothers to only find that they too have no idea what it means to have a ‘natural’ birth! In our culture, a ‘natural birth’ means ‘they did it without drugs’ or ‘it came out vaginally’—but to us, that is far from what it means to birth naturally, in the purist, physiological sense. The midwives will share their experiences with undisturbed, physiological birth in early labor, active/transition labor, 2nd stage pushing, birth, 3rd stage placenta and 4th stage transition to life and motherhood. This process will be dynamically contrasted with a ‘typical’ natural birth in the current medical environment.
