Radiant Mama Group
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. If you are pregnant or in your first year of parenting you will find useful information on our radiant mama site about practitioners, classes, groups and resources, as well as places in Totnes and surrounding area where you can connect with like minded parents.
Radiant Mama doesn‘t advocate a particular style of birthing or parenting. We aim to enable mamas to meet the experiences of life, pregnancy, birth and mothering, feeling resourced, inspired and part of a like minded community.

Here is a lovely programme about the Totnes hub (now the Wednesday Radiant Mama group) by Alice Armstrong from Soundart radio:
The Radiant Mama takes place on Wednesday morning from 10am to 12.30 in Dartington near Totnes.
6.30pm Pregnancy Yoga with Uma 07985 013085
7.30pm Pregnancy Circle with Sarah in Totnes 07794 076131
Some words from our mums:
“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.”
As well as offering focused groups, classes and activities, Radiant Mama is a place to meet like minded mums, pregnant or with little ones, have a cuppa, enjoy an indian head massage or a foot massage with Uma, get some info and share a yummy snack.
