Conscious Birth Prep Class: complications - when the unexpected happens at birth!

Free Event

August 24, 2019 at 10:30am

Always a popular group for newbies and experienced mamas alike, the midwives address the most common concerns that our clients have in regards to birth complications. We walk you through: stalled, active labor; non-encouraging fetal heart tones; prolapsed cord; shoulder dystocia; nuchal cord; newborn resuscitation; postpartum hemorrhage; retained placenta; lacerations and repair; poor newborn transition; and how a transfer to the hospital occurs. Any other concerns brought up by the group are also addressed. This session is typically very reassuring for all attendees.

August Women's Wisdom Circle

Free Event

August 26, 2019 at 6:30pm

You may register below or on our client Facebook page.

The Women's Wisdom Circle is a private group for clients that meets from 6:30 PM- 8:30 PM on the fourth Monday of each month. The vision of this Circle is to create a space for connection and support for women who are navigating a world beyond pregnancy, birth, and new parenting. We will explore a range of topics that support the needs of mothers of maturing families. This group is a night for women only- no babies or spouses.

Facilitation of each Circle rotates among members who feel drawn to a topic they are passionate about discussing, or that they are willing to read up on in order to steer the conversation. No one “leader” is responsible for a schedule or discussion. These topics are starting off points and the group dynamic is that EVERYONE is responsible for research and discussion. Who knows where the discussion will end up!

As always, attendees are invited to bring and share food and drink. This is a time for you to come give and receive wisdom in a private intimate environment, forging deeper connection, and holding the space and confidentiality of all who attend.

September Birth Circle

Free Event

September 09, 2019 at 6:30pm

Let’s talk about sex, baby! In September we will discuss our sexual relationships with our partners and our own sexuality before pregnancy, during pregnancy, after baby arrives, and beyond.

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!**

Please bring a snack and/or beverage to share.

Conscious Birth Prep Class: BundledBaby Care - honoring every parent's innate connection to their child!

Free Event

September 21, 2019 at 10:30am

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 cannot talk about the mama without talking about her newborn—an extension of her body for the first nine months after birth. 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!
