Moon Mama Circles
Pleasure * Power * Pregnancy
Moon Mama Circles are eight week guided circles for up to 10 women. In these circles we will get to relax together as mothers and cultivate a mutually supportive experience that, if you choose, can continue beyond the eight weeks that I will be facilitating.
Each week I introduce a topic with a short lecture and longer discussion/ Q & A.
There will be guided meditations, a movement portion and the life blood of all good women’s circles: the opportunity to share your heart, be heard and receive any support you request.
- The power of the pelvis; anatomy and beyond.
- Rituals and rhythms to support birthing.
- Relationship status; examine unmade agreements & clarify your needs.
- Addressing and transmuting fears around labor.
- Trusting the body. Affirmations, objections & meditation.
- Sensuality/sexuality in pregnancy and motherhood.
- Self organizing: tools to continue circling together.
- If there are other topics that you are longing for, please let me know!

“Rosy created a warm welcoming, safe space for us to share and connect. There was structure but not rigidity. The circle offered us the opportunity to bring our authentic, vulnerable selves forward. This was the best thing I did for myself in preparing for the birth of my child.”
“This group was exactly what my soul needed. I feel this type of connection is lacking between women, esp. moms-to-be. I loved the sense of containment that was felt through intentional openings & closing. You responded with warmth & compassion, never looking to offer advice. You held the space and I loved the movement portion as well!”
“The Women’s Circle was such a blessing in my pregnancy. I’d head home at the end of each circle with a sense of comfort, nurturing & freedom I didn’t know I was missing. Rosy is an exceptional facilitator & holds a nurturing, positive & safe space for pregnant women to evolve in their process.”
“This was my first experience with a women’s circle and I am sold. The sense of community and the power of the collective holding of each other was profoundly moving at a time of trepidation and uncertainty. Being with other women and mamas, in love and solidarity provided me with an invaluable and profound experience.”
