Imagine a gathering of mothers and babies in your community,
... being acknowledged and supported.
... cultivating your unique art of mothering.
... creating a network of support and friendship. 
... learning practical ways to care for yourself from the wise folks in your community.
... in the midst of a joyful gathering with your babies.

This is Mothering Arts.

Community Supported Postpartum Course

Parents don't need another online group. They need each other.

When it comes to connection and community, nothing compares to in-person, heart-to-heart gatherings.

If you believe that the postpartum year is a special time and that communities should wrap parents of newborns in support and care…

...and it’s time for YOU to create that in your community, learn more and sign up for our next community supported postpartum course. We begin May 18, 2019

Don't miss the monthly Mothering Arts Muse

Once a Month, I Send You a Community Supported Postpartum Muse-Letter

Your monthly emails contain

  • Snapshots of what folks are creating to support families in their communities
  • Resources, recipes, baby games, songs, free tips and tools
  • Highlights from parents, community organizers, websites, books, podcasts and leaders I’m inspired by and learning from so you can go to the source and learn from them, too

From time to time, I’ll also offer you early-bird coupons and give you a heads-up about our in-person and online courses, too.

Mothering Arts is fundamentally devoted to uplifting the postpartum journey. We do this by teaching folks how to create multi-generational gatherings in their community which nurture parents and babies.  Our community supported postpartum course,  resource blog, and local groups build community, no amount of friends on a screen can replace the heart to heart connection of when people come together in real life.

Mothering Arts is a community support group model that’s here to wrap new parents in care, support and acknowledgement… that you and your family can flourish in these precious postpartum days and months.

This is an inclusive environment. We recognize and affirm that not every body that births is female and that not every post-partum parent has given birth. We welcome you in this tender season of life when you have a body that has recently birthed, when you’re a new parent, when you’re a postpartum mother, or when you’re an adoptive or foster parent of a newborn.

But our current culture, however, often ignores or abandons mothers & parents of newborns at the moment you need us most.

We are here to change that by helping you access and develop your web of support.

Together we can rally to make sure that you and other newborn parents like you have everything you need to thrive -- including a flourishing community of care.
