Wednesdays for 8 Weeks


Social media tells us a story of parenthood that is filled with perfect filters and cute baby bump photos. But what if that hasn’t been your path? It can make you feel alone and unsupported. For people who have experienced

  • Infertility
  • Pregnancy Loss

… it can feel completely isolating. People don’t understand where you’re coming from and they can’t offer you any helpful direction! Everything is out of your control and nothing seems to make it okay.

Learn with other families who get it! Mindfulness is the perfect sanity tool to help you cope with the highs and lows of your journey. Connect with others. Take home a usable skill every week that will support you through whatever life throws at you.

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally” - Jon Kabat Zin
