Because it really does take a village.

We provide birth preparation and parenting support through prenatal yoga and meditation; childbirth education; birth doula services; and postpartum yoga and meditation.
 

ABOUT US

From firsthand experience, we believe it takes a village to raise a family. We met on the first night of our prenatal yoga training and bonded over our boys. It was immediately obvious that we were aligned in our practice as yoga teachers, mothers, and women. We connected, and through that connection, our village expanded. We hope that you can connect to your village through our yoga, meditation, and wellness offerings.

VILLAGE WELLNESS YOGA

$15 drop-ins or 6 classes for $60
Not currently offering any group classes.

These group classes are specially designed for pregnant and postpartum mothers (and we believe there is no limit on the postpartum period!). Our class style blends aspects of strengthening, stretching, and relaxing. Regardless of level, flexibility, or ability, we always meet you where you are. All the Village Wellness Yoga classes incorporate community building as an integral piece as well.

Contact us to schedule a private class.

BIRTH DOULA

Annie and Emeline are birth doulas ready to help you have your best birth. It is important to us that you are more than satisfied with your birth experience. We can provide information and support - both physical and emotional - before, during, and just after your birth. As doulas, we will partner with your partner or stand alone by your side. We have both been trained through Doulas of North America International (DONA) certified training programs. Birth is our passion.

BIRTH POSITIONING PRIVATE CLASS

Whether you need comfort and relief during pregnancy or position ideas during labor and delivery, we offer private classes in the comfort of your own home. Partnering during pregnancy is beneficial for everyone - baby, mom and partner!

PLACENTA ART PRESSING

Emeline can help guide you or create for you a lasting art piece of your placenta through paint pressing. This incredible organ that you've grown can be turned into a piece of art that serves as the reminder of this intimate time of nourishing your baby.

MOTHER'S BLESSING

We can perform a blessing ceremony for mother-to-be and her village to celebrate mother and child before baby is due. A typical mother's blessing includes meditation, readings, music, flower crowns, string ceremony, a special snack.  We combine elements from a traditional American baby shower and the traditional Blessingway, a sacred ceremony common to the Navajo people, creating a mother-centered celebration. This special ceremony can often be the last step for a mother to take to feel ready to meet her new baby.
