Have I got a treat for you! This coming Saturday, from 9am-noon, at Founder’s Park in Carmel, I’ve partnered with Paola Williams of Paola Williams Photography to bring you Mom to Be! Paola, a talented local photographer, will be offering mini maternity sessions, Mimi Sosa of Yoga Garden, an amazing yoga instructor and doula, will be there talking about her fabulous prenatal yoga classes, and I, doula and childbirth educator, will be there talking about planning a positive birth.
This is a unique opportunity to talk with us about what we do and how we might enhance your life either Saturday, or sometime in the future. Come! Get some great pictures taken. Celebrate your pregnancy! Start thinking about a plan for your birth and the beauty of motherhood that come after! This is a low-key, fun, rather informal event and if you already have kids, they can play at the park! If you are interested in the maternity sessions, I’d suggest you arrive earlier so you can sign up for a time slot.
This is an outdoor event and will be postponed if we get crazy Indiana weather so if you’re questioning, check out the event on my Facebook page. Also, please note that the intersection of Hazel Dell and 116th is closed so the park is only accessible coming from the north down Hazel Dell. This happened AFTER we chose the location of course. ;) If you need to be rerouted, message me and I’ll be happy to help you figure out how to get there. See you Saturday!
Are you having a difficult time committing to several weeks in a row of childbirth prep classes? Are you and your partner's schedules such that nothing you've found works for both of you? I'm so excited to announce my first GentleBirth Workshop in Fishers on April 29th and 30th! It's taught in a weekend workshop format, so you are done with your in-person classes after just one weekend. Along with you workshop registration, you receive three months access to the GentleBirth App where you find your guidebook and your brain training hypnosis and mindfulness tracks.
Not only that, but the workshop is being held at Cornerstone Lutheran Church Fishers, which has the new Indianapolis area indoor playground! This place is going to be your favorite in a few years and you get a preview! There should be a map below.
Are you ready to register? You can do that here, through the GentleBirth site. Have some questions? Feel free to ask away through my contact page! What to find out more about GentleBirth before committing? Come to our meetup coming on Saturday, March 25th at The Well Coffeehouse in Fishers. Look for more dates coming soon!
On March 25th, I'm hosting my first GentleBirth Meetup! We'll talk about positive birth and all things baby and parenting related. I'll be demoing the GentleBirth app as well. This program has the potential to really change birth for women and make it something they are anticipating. So excited to share this unique program! You can RSVP via the Facebook event here (not necessary) or find out more information here.
I'd love to see lots of people there! If you are a birth worker a more specific birth worker information session will be happening soon!
