Prenatal Empowerment Group NEW

About the peer support group

As mothers in North America we are completely isolated from one another and often from our own families. Yet, social support has been proven to protect women from developing perinatal mood disorders. We were never meant to do this important and demanding work in isolation.  This is why we have created the prenatal support group, to provide a space for mothers-to-be to build community therefore enhancing their well-being.

This group will be a safe and welcoming place where questions can be asked, fears, hopes and dreams can be explored, and new friendships developed. We will discuss issues such as fears of childbirth, expectations and hopes for motherhood, body image and changes and attempt to develop answers that empower you and leave you feeling inspired and strong. We will practice mindfulness, create birth art, and share meaningful conversations.

Susanne and Christiane are Registered Social Workers in addition to being mothers themselves and will ensure that the space is safe, enjoyable and therapeutic.

What you will get out of this group:

    Become confident in your intuition, innate knowledge and experience as a mother.

    Meet other like-minded mothers and nurture new friendships.

Engage in honest conversations, do birth art, and enjoy a variety of mindfulness exercises. 

    Develop a positive and strong version of pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood for yourself.

    Share meaningful and progressive conversations with other mothers.

    Gain a sense of community and build a social support network.

Not sure? This group is for you if you …

… think it takes a village to grow and raise a child

… feel overwhelmed, alone, unsure, afraid about some aspects of your pregnancy or upcoming birth and motherhood  (those could be physical, psychological, spiritual dimensions of your experience or it could be around the decision-making process of aspects of your prenatal care and / or interventions during labour and birth)

… want to immerse yourself in a positive, warm and welcoming space with other pregnant women to ponder questions, to be curious about the experiences of others, to become mindful of your own experience and to drink some tea :)
