This group aims to provide a safe space where participants can explore their feelings without judgment. This is an open-ended group, meaning that members may stay with the group for as long as they feel it benefits them.

All pregnant people with any type of plan for birthing are welcome. You will be in class with the same small group each week so we can build community and connect with one another along the pregnancy journey.
