honouring birth as
emotional and spiritual -
as well as physical.
No matter where you are birthing, no matter what style of birth and who your medical care providers are…
we are an additional, and VERY useful, layer of support, available to you!
We provide warm and empathetic support as you plan and prepare your birth and post-partum.
We exist inside a large, shared community building named Pachamama House (meaning “Mother Earth”).
We have a full-time, large, room with a beautiful lounged area, a massage table and across the hall, a preloved maternity and baby clothing space (gold coin donations appreciated). We also have full use of the main buildings’ workshop rooms and yoga space.

“I was so thrilled to discover and be able to attend these birth meetings during my pregnancies! I loved connecting with the community, sharing stories, gaining insightful information and feeling empowered in my choices around pregnancy and birth. The friendships I made were strong and they continue to flourish to this day”.
We do it all for you!
“Relaxed meetings with great facilitation which makes everyone attending feel welcome and supported, including partners. In the meetings I’ve been to, the discussions have been informative and positive. Mothers and partners can share their experiences with the group if they like, and others can benefit”.
Some of our friendly team!
