Holistic Birth Preparation
Jess McArdle is taking over from Tamsyn and will continue to nurture this supportive space for women and couples as they navigate their pregnancy and birth through movement, breathing and relaxation.
This pre birth group at the Carnegie Library Hub will support mother at all stages of their pregnancy and is all about respecting the body’s intelligence and its interconnection with mind and spirit. There will be time to cultivate the self-trust that enables a smooth transition through pregnancy, birth and parenthood and build community along the way.
Pregnant and birth experiences can be complex and diverse. All are very welcome regardless of how far along in the pregnancy and whether you expecting a first baby or already have children. Partners are also invited to the last Monday of each month.
And people who are interested can email firstname.lastname@example.org
