My Baby & Me is a creative retreat for expectant and new parents (regardless of how many babies you have) who wish to mark the special moments of their parenting journey. This creative and embodied approach is a gentle way for parents to being listening to their bodies and reflect on their experiences on a deeper level, whilst exploring personal and group themes through mindfulness, reflections, art making, movement and group sharing’s. These retreats will see you be guided to create your own mini or full body map, that marks your pregnancy journey or your journey once your baby is born – seeing you create a body map for you and your baby. You may be wondering - what is Somatic Body Mapping? It is a creative process that sees you take part in different activities to create a life-size outline of your body on paper. You are then supported to use art materials, images, words, and symbols to ‘colour in’ your outline. All parents are welcome, all becoming-parent journeys are welcome, babies/toddlers/children are welcome. This is a sacred space for you to embrace, give voice to and to create memories individually and as a group. There is no right or wrong way to take part in this activity and you do not need to have movement or art making experiences to join. These sessions are in-person and in small groups. 1-1 and small groups can also be offered online. Please message to find out more. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to message me on [email protected]
