Joyful Mothering Circle
Postpartum is a sacred and delicate time that should be honored and protected.
Congratulations on crossing the threshold into motherhood. Unexpectedly, you have stumbled into a profound transformational journey. As you nurture this tiny human and continue to sustain its vitality with your warmth and nourishment, you are discovering you are not the same as you once were.
Whether this is your first time or your fifth time, we would love to have you join us for a Mother’s circle where mothers, babies, and wise women come together with the intention to embrace a gentle postpartum time. A place where nurturing can truly be experienced by each mother and baby. A place where you can share openly tears, questions, doubts, fears, laughter, and love by being vulnerable to just be yourself. This is a place for mamas who birthed (or became a mother) in any way, who feed their baby in any way, who sleep in any way. This is a place for every art of mothering. A place to encourage women to embrace mothering as a path of self-development and a place where they can learn how to experience joy.
Over the course of several weeks, we will get to know each other and immerse ourselves in topics that are balanced between caring for ourselves, our babies, and our families.
What you can expect from our circle:
Tea and Freshly Prepared Organic Snack
An Opening Inspirational Verse
Personal Check-In and journal writing
Receiving Wisdom from practitioners working in our community
Social Time to connect with other new mama’s
The feeling of being nurtured and honored
In addition to Amy as the leader, there will also be an elder holding the space as Grandmother. Occasionally we will have a visit from a wise woman; a local practitioner from the community who will share her knowledge, offering a much-needed resource during the postpartum period and beyond. Prior to each session, you will be given some reading pertaining to the day’s topic(s) which will be added to your personal folder. At the end of the series, you will leave with a packet full of resources you can look back on as well as your journal pages.
Circles are curated based on the needs of our currently enrolled Mama's as well as the availability of our local practioners. Some past circle topics have included...

Our circle meets for about 2 hours on a Monday morning. This includes 30 minutes of unstructured social time to connect with other Mamma's during which you will be served a freshly prepared organic snack. Space is limited to 10 Mamas with and their babies 0-12 months old.
All circles are held at Song Sparrow Playgarden in peaceful Alhambra Valley of Martinez.

I LOVE holding these circles! However, I need at least a minimum of 5 mamas to begin. Complete the registration form (payment will be due one week prior to start of circle) and let me know you’re interested. Please tell your friends or gather some new mamas and I would be happy to make a circle for you!
I look forward to meeting you and your new babies!
Warmth and Blessings,
