Pregnancy Discussion Forum / Support Group

FREE!!   Open to all pregnant women.

Come and connect with other pregnant women.

Share your concerns, feelings, joys and wisdom

Increase your knowledge regarding pregnancy, birth and parenting.

This group is dynamic and will be whatever you need it to be for the session.


We devote time to addressing fears, exploring feelings or discussing the wondrous changes of pregnancy.
There will be activities designed to promote communication and introspection. You may wish to gather information and viewpoints that can assist you in deciding what may work best for you and your family. Perhaps you’d like to spend more time than is allowed in your birth class on various issues. Topics for discussion may include but are not limited to:


Common discomforts



Birthing options

                                                                   Cultural views and routine care of pregnancy, labor, and birth & the effects on effects and babies
This group does not replace your birth class.  You are welcome at any stage of pregnancy and the group is not limited to first time mamas. Each pregnancy is unique & has it’s own set of circumstances, joys and challenges.  We welcome and honor all who attend.   Diversity is respected.
