Postpartum Women’s Circle
These circles are an opportunity for mothers to come together & to CONNECT.
Join us in a safe & warm space where you can share your experience of being a mother with other mothers. This is also a great way to grow on your all-important village!
What is a women’s circle?
It’s a gathering of women where we connect on a deeper level and we learn new ways of speaking, listening, and relating to others.
It is a place where hold space to really be present for each other in a non-judgemental way. As each woman joins the circle, we come together as equals united by our common experience; in this case, that common experience is that of mothering.
Here’s what you can expect at a monthly postpartum women’s circle…
♥ As you arrive, we welcome you to unwind and get really present in the moment
♥ We’ll slowly gather in circle and start by taking 3 deep breaths to help us to relax and be more present.
♥ This will be a wonderful time to do a quick round circle to share our names and who we mother.
♥ Either I or my co-facilitator (Karyn Hughes, owner of Kneaded Touch Massage Therapy), will offer a conversation starter. It will be a fairly broad topic related to motherhood to help get the ice broken.
♥ At this point, we will sit collectively in the circle to hold space for each other. Each woman may choose to take a turn when they feel ready to speak to the topic we’ve opened with or to share anything she feels called to share with the group. We will have a speaking token in the middle of the circle and when you feel ready to speak, you may simply pick up the item and hold it throughout the time that you are talking.
This is where we truly hold space for the woman speaking ~ no one else will speak during this time ~ we will hold no judgement, we will simply listen and be there.
♥ As we slowly approach the end of our time together, Karyn or I will bring the circle to a close.
♥ We will deliberately leave some time for you to mingle more casually, giving you the opportunity to build friendships and ultimately to GROW YOUR VILLAGE!
** All babies and older siblings home with moms are welcome. Toys are available, but please feel free to bring a couple along.
** Please feel free to bring along a warm beverage and nut-free snacks.
These circles take place on the 4th Thursday of every month at the Kneaded Touch Women’s Clinic in Barrhaven.
