The Labor Workshop

For Pregnant Women and Their Partners

New mothers often ask, “What will labor be like?” “How will I cope with the pain?”

Additional topics include…

• Specific movements that may help your baby move into a more optimal position for birth

Village Prenatal Gathering

For pregnant women and supporting women who care about birth options

We come together in this special gathering to help our pregnant sisters feel nurtured, heard, supported and nourished through sharing a nutritious vegetarian lunch, stories, a talking circle, meditation and more. As supporters we are grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aspiring midwives and professional midwives, doulas, nurses, doctors, yoga teachers, psychiatrists, pharmacists, energy and body workers, ministers, and other women who care deeply about simple and sacred birth; we gather out of selfless service to support and encourage the instinctual life of those with us wanting to birth in power against a modern current of fear and unnecessary interventions.

Together our support offers the younger women…
• Nourishment and inspiration for their body, babies and spirit
• The feeling of being bathed in a sense of belonging
• Trust in their intuition
• Strengthened confidence in their body and its knowledge of the best answers for it (whether ‘natural’ or otherwise)
• Belief in themselves and tools to recognize their inner knowing
• Motivation to ‘do it their own way’
• Encouragement to speak their Truth
• A place to find peace in making their own decisions 

For all who wish to come, please email Colette, who is organizing the shared lunch: colette@seattleholisticcenter.com. If you want to bring a beloved elder woman in your life please do! We only ask that she email Colette and arrange to bring a potluck dish to share, along with the other elders and supporters in our gathering.

Held approximately every trimester (three times per year).

Baby Gym

For Parents/Caregivers and Babies (3 Months to Crawling)

Baby, let’s rock and roll! Move to the beat of lively music with exercises designed to help your baby’s growing mind and body during this incredibly influential time of brain development. Babies delight in loving skin-to-skin contact with mom and/or dad, being held and carried, and spending tummy time on your body, all which help stimulate your infant’s nervous system and aid physical and cognitive development. Your baby gains more control and coordination while increasing strength, agility and flexibility for a beautiful foundation to grow on—and is likely to sleep more soundly, too!

Rate includes up to two adults and one child.

Conscious Birthing

Conscious Birthing

For Pregnant Women and Their Partners
Empower yourself by discovering your natural, innate wisdom, and learning the knowledge and skills you need to make the most conscious decisions about your baby’s birth.

Today’s increasingly technological approach to childbirth dismisses a women’s natural power to birth. In our country, 98% of women will have drugs during their labors, which can often create the need for more interventions. We want you to know you have options.

In this workshop series, you will learn current evidence-based maternity care practices to help you understand what your choices are in any setting—hospital, birth center or home—so you can make more conscious decisions for your and your baby’s care.

Using movement, breathing, meditation and relaxation techniques, you’ll learn how to help center yourself and connect to your intuition so you can feel more relaxed and better able to cope with labor. The movements you learn can often help your baby’s positioning, too. In every class, you and your partner will get hands-on experience as you practice these techniques so you feel more prepared when the time comes to birth your baby. You’ll also discover how to create an environment that is supportive and sacred, wherever you decide to birth.

We look forward to supporting you in feeling more confident and inspired during this extraordinary time for you and your baby.

Preregistration required. Register early, as class size is limited!
And please wear comfortable clothing, so you’re easily able to work with the movements taught in class.  

As a 2-Part Workshop:
May 17 and 18, 2019
