“Grief is an emotional experience and no matter how hard society tries to act as if sad feelings don’t exist – THEY DO”      -author unknown

At Mamas for Mamas we offer a program for Grief and Loss. We recognize that Grief is a difficult and lonely journey. Our goal is to offer support and companionship to mamas that have experienced loss. Loss comes in many shapes and forms, but the one thing it has in common, is pain; whether it is lost through miscarriage, stillborn, loss of infant or child, a life partner, friend, parent or sibling. No one should have to grieve this kind of pain alone.

Through this 6 week Grief and Loss Support Group, we offer support as you gain an understanding of the stages of grief and coping techniques on your grief journey. The group was designed with the purpose of creating a safe and intimate space for each individual to begin their healing journey.  This is a safe place where we provide support for each other and provide the opportunity to experience new ways to understand your own grieving process and how to move forward in a new normal that you did not ask for.

This group is facilitated by a registered counselor.

Have you ever thought about where your beliefs about yourself and what is possible for your life have come from? These things play a major role in our relationship with ourselves. What we think we can achieve and how we relate to ourselves and the world around us.

As women it is easy to struggle with the biggest relationship we will ever have, the one we have with ourselves and our body. To no fault of their own our, parents instill beliefs in us, culture and society also have a profound impact as well but that doesn’t mean we are destined to hold the beliefs we were given.

We all have a garden at birth, with rich soil. Things get planted there as we grow up, but some things that once blossomed have died or become like weeds that need to be removed. This is so we can make room for something better for us and who we are.

In this workshop we will explore what those beliefs are, how they may be impacting you and the quality of the relationship you have with yourself and your body. We will open up space for new more aligned beliefs so that you can come home to your body, plant things that will grow and flourish as you were meant to. This will include limiting beliefs, self-love, and your relationship with/to your body.

  • You will be given actionable tools that you can implement immediately
  • You will learn the power of affirmations, how to create your own and how to use them
  • What self-care practices can enhance your life
  • How to nurture and give gratitude to your body daily
  • and practices for relief of anxiety, limiting beliefs, stress and physical pain.

You deserve to come home to your body. She is waiting for you.

Please join us for a 4 week workshop; there will be one hour of interactive learning and practice with 30 minutes available at the end for questions. See the link below to sign up! Please watch your email for updates on start dates and links to the sessions.
