Perinatal Mindfulness Groups
If you have experienced perinatal loss, you are not alone - you deserve the wrap around support of a community who cares and understands. We offer 2-3 programs per quarter and the groups for this Fall 2023 are:
1st trimester loss
2nd or 3rd trimester loss
Postpartum with a Rainbow Baby
Our 6 week online programs combine the ideas of mindfulness, self-compassion, and meditative practices and are held in a supportive community with others who have a shared experience of this journey.
PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN TO:
Step out of unhelpful thought patterns.
Recognize and be more aware of mind-body processes.
Access new, more compassionate ways to relate to depression, anxiety and other aspects of experience.
Gently turn towards and engage with difficult and challenging experiences and emotions.
