Sacred Pregnancy Classes

Eight Week Pregnancy Journey

Date: Every Sunday, February 3, 2013 to Sunday, March 24, 2013.

Time: 11am- 1pm

Instructors: Nina Phelan & Dr. Lindsey Mathews

BirthFIT has teamed up with the very talented Nina Phelan of Soulful Birth to offer the Los Angeles area these one of a kind Sacred Pregnancy classes. Our classes hold a space for pregnant women to connect with one another and their pregnancy experiences in meaningful and personal ways. Sacred Pregnancy classes are a unique place for pregnant women to gather together, for eight weeks early on in their pregnancy journeys and again for four weeks toward the end of their pregnancies. Each week focuses on different topics and encourages deep sharing through art, expression, laughter, honoring, and celebration.

We want to bring back the age old tradition of women sitting with one anther 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.

Nina and I want you all to come and sit with us and explore your pregnancy journey in a meaningful way. If you are pregnant and want to join the circle, then follow the information on the picture below or email me (lindsey@birthfit.com). We cannot  wait to meet you all!
