About this event

THE EVENT

This not for profit event is a little different from what you typically expect a pregnancy and motherhood event to be. The format will be in the form of interactive stalls and panel talks and the opportunity for Q&A. It allows for conversation and discussion, as well as private one to one chats and support as and when needed.

Please note the day is divided into two events. You are free to purchase tickets for either or indeed both the morning and afternoon event.

Morning 10am - 1pm - Pregnancy

Afternoon 2pm - 5pm - Motherhood .

THE MONIES RAISED FROM THE EVENT

The monies raised from the event will be going to support both;

THE IDEA BEHIND THE EVENT

We are very excited to bring both the Pregnancy event and Motherhood event to you this coming June. It will be so wonderful to connect with likeminded women in person and explore ideas and ways to support each other. When women come together amazing things can happen. It will be a chance to not just connect with each other, but reconnect with our sense of self and knowing. In doing so reframing how we practice self care and exploring how we can nurture our emotional, physical, mental, holistic, hormonal and social wellbeing. Doing so minus the guilt!

The idea behind this Embodied Conversations Support Series is that it will create much needed space for us to connect and have real, honest, authentic conversations, while also creating awareness of the many supports available. We will look at the idea of moving towards a culture that nurtures, supports and empowers women in pregnancy and all stages of motherhood. Exploring the idea of moving away from a culture that supports judgement, guilt, shame, stigma and the extraordinary expectations that we place on ourselves. The pressure of comparisons and the illusion that social media creates in relation to how we ‘should’ be in pregnancy and motherhood, can instead be met with compassion, understanding, support, awareness and acknowledgement. The difference that could make is enormous. Change begins one conversation at a time. We are very much looking forward to the conversations that we will be having on the day and for what those in attendance can add to it.

THE MORNING EVENT - PREGNANCY (10AM-1PM)

There will be space for 50-60 to attend in the morning with a focus on discussion and support for pregnancy. The conversations will explore and support holistic, physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing. With topics ranging from pregnancy after a long fertility journey or loss, exploring breastfeeding, nutrition, practical and emotional support when preparing for motherhood and post birth, the fourth trimester, communication, boundaries, self-care, identity, intimacy, body awareness pre and post partum, pelvic health and strengthening, cycle awareness, returning to work after pregnancy and of course will be open to conversation or topics as they arise. With the amazing range of support that exists from the experience of the stall holders in attendance we are in a very comfortable position in that we can cover so much as and when it comes up. In having the structure of interactive panel talks but also allowing to go with the flow of the morning and topics that may come up.

THE AFTERNOON EVENT - MOTHERHOOD (2PM-5PM)

The same numbers again then in the afternoon with the focus on motherhood, from new mums to those well into motherhood covering physical, mental, emotional, social and hormonal health. With topics including perinatal trauma or loss, periods, relationships, sex and intimacy, secondary infertility, motherhood after infertility, connection and communication, mum guilt, rage, overwhelm, being touched out, identity, body image, self-care, holistic support, perimenopuse, menopause, boundaries, work life balance and so much more. Again we have such a vast amount of experience and services offered from the stall holders. This enables us to have a structure in place with regards to topics but also go with the flow of what comes up in the afternoon which is amazing.
