Does your doctor's office or midwifery practice offer these?  Outside of prenatal healthcare, you may join a support circle in your community or online.

Circles

Prenatal care visits in group appointments: these can last a few hours and cover far more learning and deeper support than a traditional rushed solo visit.

Prenatal Yoga

At all stages of pregnancy and zero to advanced yoga practice, prenatal yoga is designed to nurture and challenge you. Prenatal yoga aims to inspire trust in your birthing journey while providing an open community to discuss what you are experiencing. You’re guided through a balance of relaxation and strengthening the muscles that support your body during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.

Prepare where you need it most

Get your house in order

Our traditions for pregnancy often focus on collecting stuff, having baby showers, and making plans in our schedule for Baby's or Babies' arrival. That's nesting!  And that's normal.  But what about some spring cleaning before nesting?  Is there anything you need to work through?  What do you actually need before your role in this world changes? Are you happy? What's causing stress?  What would be most helpful from those around you?
