Mothers’ Walk in the Woods

Led by: Bonnie Romanow

Best for expectant mothers and those parenting newborn to 1 year olds.

Finding a network of support during the first three years of your child’s life can make an enormous difference for you as a parent, for your relationships, and in the long term, for your child. 

Our group will offer friendship and support in community with other mothers. Explore ways to care for yourself while creatively meeting the demands of motherhood. The whole family benefits from a cared-for mama. 

You’ll experience:

  • practical tips for making your life easier and more streamlined
  • judgement-free listening and the space to think and process the big changes that have been happening in your life
  • optional articles on parenting, education, and home keeping, including ways to honor the seasons
  • healing time in nature, light exercise, tea and a snack
  • connection with other moms of similar aged children 
  • what’s most burning in your world right now?
