Today, Angie Campeau, CFC’s Surrogate Support worker, and I travelled to Newmarket, Ontario to circle with some amazing women through the art of Sacred Pregnancy. Today was an amazingly exhausting day. We shared smiles, tears, and many stories as we learned the amazing art of Creating a Sacred Space for women to create their birth experience.
The women have been amazing, the food divine, and we have all been treated to amazing massage by a therapist from Arizona. Throughout the day, we shared pregnancy experiences, fears, and honoured each other in amazing ways. I will continue to update you on this experience as the next days unfold for us.
Below is a write up from the Sacred Pregnancy movement that explains the Classes that Angie, and I will be certified to teach these amazing classes.
Your Sacred Pregnancy is a journey. Our classes hold space for pregnant women to connect with one another and their pregnancy experiences in meaningful and personal ways. Sacred Pregnancy groups are being held all around the world and are the NEW WAVE of the pregnancy + birthing future. We are hell bent on changing the birth conversation as Sacred Pregnancy classes bring back the age old tradition of women sitting with one another 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.
Sacred Pregnancy classes are a special place for pregnant women to gather together, for 8 weeks early on in their pregnancy journeys and again for 4 weeks toward the end of their pregnancies. Each week is spent exploring pertinent topics that naturally arise for most women as they walk down their pregnancy paths and encourage deep sharing, exploring ART, expression, laughter, honoring and CELEBRATION.
Pregnancy is one of the DEEPEST DRINKS life has to offer. Each woman’s pregnancy pot gets stirred with various emotions and we all need a safe place to process those tides and sip some sanity from the community cauldron.
We want to take the pregnancy + BIRTH conversation through winding unsure roads, down unbeaten paths, out on adventures, for a slow dance, get sexy BEAUTIFUL with it, down and bloody with it, cram it with herbs, tears, passion, love and FRESH PERSPECTIVE, crack it open for new rays of sunlight to shine down and help enlightened visions grow, and mostly have fun pouring over all this juicy goodness together, in the new sisterhood we are creating!
The Sacred Pregnancy movement is blossoming because of two things: 1. women are calling for change + 2. biz as usual isn’t enough! WE WANT MORE, WE DESERVE MORE, WE CRAVE MORE…and we are waking up to how to GET MORE! And what is this MORE I speak of?
MORE : honoring, love, sisterhood, good food, accurate cutting edge information, peace, calm, less needles and and cranky vibes, JOY, sexy, goofy, flowers, empowerment, creativity, round full gorgeous bellies, herbs, tinctures, soup!, BLISS, good tears, sweet tunes that MOVE us to dance and sweet babies born into our loving embrace…
Welcome to the SACRED PREGNANCY MOVEMENT…
Thank you for Welcoming us as Sisters,
Angie and Leia
