Women remember their birth stories forever.

 

We wish to help you have a birth story you will want to stop people in the street to tell.

The Creative Birth Journey urban day retreat is a whole new approach to birth preparation; in our workshops we are not the “experts”, instead, you are. You know your body and our role is to help you remember the inner knowing you have,  to help you conjure the strength deep within you as you prepare to birth your baby. In our workshops you will create, share, experiment and begin new friendships with other women who are on the same journey as you.

I developed this workshop with my doula colleague, Nadia Raafat. We bring together our combined wisdom and love of all things birth to offer you our doula inspired day. 

We are mothers. We are passionate about birth, children, and womencraft. We are empathetic, compassionate women who believe in the strength women have. We trust that all women have the ability to birth well.

We wish to

  • explore your wishes and intentions.

  • help you conquer your fears and feel strong in mind and body.

  • enrich your birth experience.

  • help you feel in control of your body.

  • excite you to all the possibilities.

  • support and strengthen you, emotionally and physically.

  • help you gain confidence.

  • help you find your inner strength and wisdom.

  • help you trust your instincts.

  • fill you with fortitude, vision, and courage.

  • serve you.

 

We wish for a positive birth experience for all women.

 

You will

  • be heard.

  • connect with one another, and make friends.

  • connect with your baby.

  • relax and feel stronger.

  • feel luminous.

  • share, explore, reflect.

  • feel cherised and loved
