Today is the official first day of Spring! The flowers are blossoming, the sun is out, and the pregnant bellies are being displayed all around! Spring is a time of hope and shedding of the winter layers. We are happy to celebrate this time – through a variety of workshops – as we support the new families of NYC grow into confident new parents.

We are very excited to host Laura Thompson Brady, THIS Saturday, March 24 (1-4pm), at the Museum of Motherhood as she guides us in the “Cocoon Time” workshop.  This wonderful workshop will offer tools for holistic postpartum self-care, a nourishesd home, and harmonious family rhythm.  Isn’t spring the perfect time to open ourselves – and our homes – up to new growth and new ideas about ways we can blossom in our own lives and cultivate a sense of bliss in our homes?

With the intention of offering an opportunity for new parents to find the balance between their intuitive selves and their intellectual selves we are continuing to offer our “Freedom to Birth” classes this spring. This course offers a chance to connect with your body and your baby to create a full sense of body, mind, and heart awareness as you embrace your pregnancy and birth experience.  Our next session will begin Tuesday, May 1 in partnership with Kids at Work in Chelsea.

Finally, in celebration of World Doula Week (beginning on March 22), we will be hosting a screening of “BIRTH – a play by Karen Brody”, THIS Saturday, March 24 (7pm) at the Museum of Motherhood. On Labor Day 2011 BirthFocus co-produced, directed, and acted in the live performance of this play at the launch of the Museum of Motherhood. Over the past several months we have formed a beautiful partnership with MOM and are excited to return to celebrate the wonderful work of doulas and honor the beautiful stories shared in this play! Doulas are FREE and there is a suggested donation, to benefit the museum, of $15 for all non-doulas.

We look forward to having you join us in our celebration of spring! And, as an extra bonus, we’d like to offer a $25 discount on all classes and workshops to anyone who has partnered with – or will partner with – one of our BirthFocus doulas for their birth!

Happy Spring!
