All women are welcome…pregnant, postpartum, doula or other birthworkers or any women or mothers who want to offer support, enjoy one another’s company and bask in the warm, loving birthy glow.

We will  honor the mothers who came before us, sing, pamper our mothers-to-be and other guests with henna, foot rubs and shoulder massages, weave a web of support and end it all sharing a delicious meal together.

Babies 6 months or younger are welcome.  Please make alternative arrangements for older babies, toddlers and children.

Please bring a potluck item to share. Sparkly non-alcoholic beverages, coffee, tea, a celebratory cake  and gluten-free treat will be provided.

Special Event: Flower Essences and Healing During Pregnancy, Birth, Postpartum and Beyond

You’ve probably heard of Rescue Remedy for use during times of high stress, anxiety or panic, but do you know that Rescue Remedy is a formula comprised of flower essences?  Flower essences are safe, gentle natural remedies, that are related to homeopathic remedies and are used to focus on healing for the mind, spirit and psyche.  Becoming pregnant, carrying a baby, birthing and becoming a mother for the first time or adding a new baby to a family are profoundly transformative times. Flower essences can be a wonderful tool for working with the many feelings and issues that come up during this special time.

santosha flower essences

Come learn all about flower essences – a profound yet underutilized natural healing modality – with Jaime Fleres-Mizejewski, founder of Santosha Birth and Wellness, a Saint Paul based wellness resource.  Learn about the healing energy of flowers, why they make such an amazing source of support for the childbearing season (and beyond), and how to add them to your home health care toolkit.  During our gathering, we will talk about and sample a handful of flower essences that particularly shine in their support of women through pregnancy, birth, and motherhood, as well as babies.  Jaime will leave time to answer your questions and make custom remedies upon request (for an additional fee).  Learn more about Santosha at SantoshaMama.com.
