Your Sacred Pregnancy is a journey. Our classes hold space for pregnant women to connect with one another and their pregnancy experiences in meaningful and personal ways. Sacred Pregnancy classes are the NEW WAVE of the pregnancy + birthing future. We are hell bent on changing the birth conversation as Sacred Pregnancy classes bring back the age old tradition of women sitting with one another during pregnancy and birth, feeling EMPOWERED, witnessing each others process and BEING there for one another during an incredibly power-FULL rite of passage... becoming mothers.
Sacred Pregnancy classes are a special place for pregnant women to gather together. Each week is spent exploring pertinent topics that naturally arise for most women as they walk down their pregnancy paths and encourage deep sharing, exploring ART, expression, laughter, honoring and CELEBRATION. Pregnancy is one of the DEEPEST DRINKS life has to offer, and should always and in all ways be treated as SACRED! Each woman’s pregnancy pot gets stirred with various emotions and we all need a safe place to process those tides and sip some sanity from the community cauldron. We want to take the pregnancy + BIRTH conversation through winding unsure roads, down unbeaten paths, out on adventures, for a slow dance, get sexy BEAUTIFUL with it, down and bloody with it, cram it with herbs, tears, passion, love and FRESH PERSPECTIVE, crack it open for new rays of sunlight to shine down and help enlightened visions grow, and mostly have fun pouring over all this juicy goodness together, in the new sisterhood we are creating! We are going old school in order to meet women where they need to be met!
WE WANT MORE, WE DESERVE MORE, WE CRAVE MORE... and we are waking up to how to GET MORE! And what is this MORE we speak of? MORE : honoring, love, sisterhood, good food, accurate cutting edge information, peace, calm, JOY, sexy, goofy, flowers, empowerment, creativity, round full gorgeous bellies, herbs, tinctures, BLISS, good tears, sweet tunes that MOVE us to dance and sweet babies born into our loving embrace...

Shelly : "I loved the sacred pregnancy classes taught by Sue Crowder. There were so many beautiful, fun ways to connect to my baby that really made my pregnancy meaningful. Each week we learned about different parts of the pregnant journey. As a class, we formed a bond and friendship while sharing our hopes, doubts, fears, and dreams. I really enjoyed the input from each woman in my class. It was a wonderful experience that I recommend to any woman out there."
