Life transitions such as pregnancy, birth and early parenthood bring great potential for growth and transformation. As we prepare and cross the threshold of parenthood, all sorts of changes and challenges are taking place. It can be a time of excitement and joy, feeling blessed and open. But also of confusion, fear, anxiety and loss, and sometimes deep aloneness.The Holistic Birth Hub offers holistic support and education to women and men during the childbearing year and beyond. This involves more than just the physical preparation for birth. It includes the emotional and spiritual dimension of the pregnancy, birth and postnatal period for the mother, father and baby. It encourages us to reclaim our intuition and trust in our innate ability to birth and raise our babies. Receiving the support of a community can be invaluable at such time.
Hubs are central points, physical as well as virtual, where women and men can access information, resources and holistic support and services, as well as be part of a like minded community during the crucial period from conception to early parenthood.

“For me the hub feels like a home, a community home, a place honouring and supporting the profound journey of bringing a child consciously into being. A place to be, to come together, to share, to eat, to laugh and to cry. It is deep medicine to share together in this simple way.”
“Have been looking for a feeling of community and I get a feeling of such welcome here and support.”
“When I come here I feel like I am coming home.”
“Thank you for creating such a nurturing environment have really needed something like this.”
