This is from Colette Crawford of The Seattle Holistic Center:
We had the launching of Village Prenatal September 20, 2015. It was beyond our imagination! We elder women served our younger pregnant women through food, talk, song, dance and meditation.
We cried, laughed, sat silently and held each others hearts. Such beauty flourished in this sacred circle. You are invited to join us on Oct 11, Nov 8 or Dec 13th. Please let me know if you would like to serve as a community elder – to any one Sunday or all.
You are asked to bring a nourishing vegetarian dish. I will coordinate the food so we have a balanced lunch.
If you would like to share something that would be supportive of the women please let me know. Last month we had drumming and song, a YouTube video, Mama Dance and more!
Your presence is what makes the magic!
The following is a description of Village Prenatal.
Blessings of peace and love,
Community Women Supporting Pregnant Women
We gather out of selfless service to support and encourage the instinctual life of pregnant women who are trying to birth in power against a modern current of fear and an environment of constant interventions.
We are grandmothers, mothers, sisters, midwives, aspiring midwives, doulas, nurses, doctors, yoga teachers, psychiatrists, pharmacists, energy and body workers, ministers and anyone else who cares deeply about simple and sacred birth.
We are here to help her:
Nourish her body, baby and spirit
With support, encouragement and inspiration
Bathe in a sense of belonging
Trust her intuition
Strengthen her confidence in her body – that it has all the right answers
Believe in herself – no one has her knowing
Do it her way
Speak her Truth
Find a place of peace to make her own decisions
We do this through sharing a nutritious vegetarian lunch, talking circle, stories, meditation, and more.
Join us on:
Sunday Sept 20, Oct 11, Nov 8, or Dec 13,
