Sacred Pregnancy

Your Sacred Pregnancy is a journey. We are hell bent on changing the birth conversation as Sacred Pregnancy classes bring back the age old tradition of women sitting with one another during pregnancy and birth, getting EMPOWERED, witnessing each others process and BEING there for one another during an incredibly power-FULL rite of passage…becoming mothers. Sacred Pregnancy classes are a special place for pregnant women to gather together, for 8 weeks early on in their ‘pregnancy journeys’ and come back later with their partners for a 4 week ‘birth Journey’ course. Each week is spent exploring pertinent topics that naturally arise for most women as they walk down their pregnancy paths and encourage deep sharing, exploring ART, expression, laughter, honoring and CELEBRATION. Pregnancy is one of the DEEPEST DRINKS life has to offer, and should always and in all ways be treated as S A C R E D. Each woman’s pregnancy pot gets stirred with various emotions and we all need a safe place to process those tides and sip some sanity from the community cauldron. We want to take the pregnancy + BIRTH conversation through winding unsure roads, down unbeaten paths, out on adventures, for a slow dance, get sexy BEAUTIFUL with it, down and bloody with it, cram it with herbs, tears, passion, love and FRESH PERSPECTIVE, crack it open for new rays of sunlight to shine down and help enlightened visions grow, and mostly have fun pouring over all this juicy goodness together, in the new sisterhood we are creating! We are going old school in order to meet women where they need to be met! The Sacred Pregnancy movement is blossoming because of two things: 1. women are calling for change + 2. biz as usual isn’t enough! WE WANT MORE, WE DESERVE MORE, WE CRAVE MORE... and we are waking up to how to GET MORE! And what is this MORE I speak of? 

The Art of Sacred Postpartum

Crossing the threshold from maiden to mother is a massive undertaking that not only needs to be recognized and ceremonially honored, but deeply necessitates a healing touch that can welcome the new mama with open arms. As a Postpartum Mother Roaster, we are charged with holding space for women on the other side of birth, we are reminded of being reverent with service to her, and blessed to be her witness as she starts feeding her baby milk, heals her body, and begins to seal the rawness of her birth experience. We are there to wrap her in a blanket of loving care, warm her insides, massage her, create herbal tinctures for her, feed her soups, and give her Mother Roasters are CAREGIVERS that nurture new mothers after BIRTH while supporting their RECOVERY + JOURNEY into motherhood; as EVERY women deserves to be welcomed into MOTHERHOOD through GENTLE + LOVING + CARE

Sacred Beginnings

Sacred Beginnings is an 8-week class series designed to continue the Sacred Pregnancy path. We, along with baby, sit together in sacred circle to honor the rite of passage of bringing a baby earth-side, whether it’s the transition from maiden to mother or the transition to more than one child. Empowered by the support of other mothers, we build our village during a time of challenge, beauty and growth. Through the gifts of community, commemoration, celebration and ceremony, we shine light on the many vibrant experiences of mothering - those moments bursting with unbound love as well as the raw, vulnerable times. Prior attendance of Sacred Pregnancy classes is not a requirement; this series is open to all moms, new and experienced alike.

Sacred Milk

Sacred Milk is a movement inspiring women to trust their bodies, their baby’s and their Milk. Our mission is to nourish the wholeness of each mothers journey and shift our culture to see Milk as a holistic practice, rather than simply a feeding choice. In the last century our culture has been saturated by marketing that has conditioned us to see breasts as sexual and human milk as just a food source. The Journey to Milk program is focused on opening space for women to remember their innate wisdom and then surround themselves with a supportive community. Milk is instinctual, natural, normal, necessary. That doesn’t mean it’s easy or filled with bliss. Milk is not something that can be fully learned from a book or taught on the internet. Milk can not be told. Milk must be modeled, supported and nourished in community because it is a way of living not just a way of feeding.
