What is a Mama Strong gathering?

Expecting a Lovebug? Grow Together

Join me and YOUR mama tribe to connect and grow together! Your birth experience will be life changing. Let's prep for your best birth outcome together. Prenatal yoga and realistic parenthood expectations will be explored.


Expectant Mamas (2nd & 3rd Trimester) 🤰👶🏻


Connect, Move, and Bond with baby.  

Grow inside and out.

Foster community.


First, we move through a series of movements together (i.e. prenatal yoga) and then we discuss current sensations, feelings, and thoughts regarding pregnancy and parenthood. We build community and help to facilitate openness and vulnerability together.  I connect mamas to local resources as desired regarding pregnancy and postpartum care. 


Intended for a small group. Please register via the link above (Expectant Mamas drop down tab) prior to the event to ensure you have a spot and the circle remains small. 


Yoga mat provided for movement portion.  If you prefer your own, feel free to bring it along.


Offered on the FIRST & THIRD Tuesday of the month (details re location below).

What is a Mindful Mamas Circle?

Carve Out Time & Space For You, Mama

For Mamas w/ babes 8 months and newer


Gather together and SHARE your experiences in your role as a mama.


Tell fellow mamas about your struggles, yet also take note of your strengths.  


Each Mindful Mamas Circle we begin by settling in and making a cup of coffee or tea.  We arrive in the space together, as one community.  We share our current struggle and strength.


We listen with ears and hearts wide open, judgement aside.  All experiences are valued.  We don't attempt to fix.  We listen, we listen, we listen. A few gentle suggestions may pop up here and there, yet in general we listen or relate.


We set an intention for the month. We share as desired and create a simple visual reminder of that intention.  An intention will turn into a thought, which turns into an action, which turns into in an empowered way of being.  You create your BE-ing, your well-being for you and your family.  Create strong roots and your family will thrive.


Intended for a small group. Please register via the link above (Mamas & Babes drop down tab) prior to the event to ensure you have a spot and the circle remains small.   Limited to 8 mamas w/ babes.


Please bring yourself and your sweet baby, as well as a cozy blanket.  Breastfeed, bottle feed, pump, diaper change.  Do what you need to do as we are all in it together.  


Offered on the SECOND & FOURTH Tuesday of the month (details re location below).
