We will be hosting our first Women's Circle in Cleveland at the Womb Wellness Center on Saturday September 21st from 4:30-5:45pm. A few of our Maya Abdominal Therapy clients have expressed interest in experiencing the Uterus Meditation to deepen their healing journey. We hope that hosting a Women's Circle is a favorable way to experience this meditation.
Maya Women's Circle: Awakening the Voice of Your Uterus

After I found out I was pregnant my husband remarked one afternoon that we should go to the library to get some pregnancy books. I just laughed and pointed to my bookshelf. "Honey," I said "I have them all right there." While working with prenatal massage and doula clients over the past five or six years I feel as if I have read every book I could get my hands on about fertility, pregnancy, birth, doulas, and postpartum care. There are countless books to help women prepare for childbirth, connect with their babies, and take care of their bodies during pregnancy. Below is a list of a few of my favorites that I felt were worth re-reading and my top five go to recommendations to my prenatal massage and doula clients.
