Single Mother by Choice TO BE!

 

 Rolling Admissions

Classes are Weds. 4:00 pm PST/7:00 pm EST 

 

Does this sound familiar?

Now that you’re finally pregnant, are you having a hard time finding the right information for you?

Do you feel like books and classes about pregnancy and birth are always catering to couples? 

Are you feeling a mix of vulnerability and excitement?

Are you yearning to create connection with other women who just get what it's like to be pregnant and solo? 

Craving community and people to geek out on the the minutia of your experience.

Are you looking for others to witness and share your journey with you and help you prepare mentally, physically and emotionally to be a solo mom? 

Without a partner, it can be hard to find someone who understands and wants to be there for every exciting or annoying symptom.

This Bi-Monthly Group will cover key aspects of Childbirth Education but focus on the nitty gritty of preparing for birth and postpartum as a single mom by choice

Develop a powerful community of single women who totally get it

Participate in deep conversation with other single moms

Connect with the larger Motherhood Reimagined SMC Community

I know what it’s like to be pregnant without a partner. And it doesn’t have to be lonely or scary. It can be empowering and transformative (and fun!)

Grounded practical advice for your pregnancy tailored to single moms

Becoming an SMC is a powerful transformation into motherhood. I would love to support you through this special yet vulnerable journey. 

I'm a childbirth educator, postpartum doula, and life coach (among other things!)

Childbirth education topics will be covered by guest experts, external resources with discussion, and my expertise. 

With my experience and expertise I can help lessen the overwhelm and prepare you for one of the most exciting times in your life.

The

When you're pregnant

 There’s a lot to process--your excitement of new life mixed with concerns about how you will make it all work as a single mom.

 

It’s natural to want to be able to talk about the little details, how your body is changing in weird and wonderful ways, creating pains and sensations, how much you crave sushi and soft cheese, how the baby keeps you awake at night kicking, and what you will name the baby.

 

There are also tons of decisions to be made such as where to give birth, whether to circumcise, choosing a pediatrician, and what kind of car seat and stroller to buy.

 

It can also feel like there a lot of pre-baby projects to get done. Creating a postpartum support plan, clearing out stuff, preparing the nursery, taking care of long forgotten projects and generally crossing things off the bucket list.

 

It’s a time to be remembered. A time to savor that you are growing a human in your body. But many times there’s no one there to witness the changes you are undergoing.

 

It can be hard to find someone who understands and wants to be there for every detail--every exciting or annoying symptom.

 

What if, you could build a community of support that wanted to hear every detail and that understood exactly what you were going through?

 

What if you could consciously take time to work on your support network so that when your baby arrives you can relax and get the help you need.

What clients say

What did pregnant SMBCs do before a group like this?!  A lifeline in a time that can be really scary, the group answers my questions, helps me know the questions I didn’t know to ask, and most vitally offers community.”

Avi

Sarah is the one support that never feels hard - she listens, she shines light and shows me possibilities, but she never judges.  Her ability to be authentically herself - and allow you to feel completely safe in being authentically yourself is truly a special gift.  I truly can't imagine being on this journey without her."
