About the sessionFeelings of anxiety or shame about our body is very much the norm for many people. Unfortunately, the experience of pregnancy has the potential to amplify our worries and body fears. In this workshop we will seek to first understand the pressures and traps that that often leave us feeling uneasy and unhappy in our bodies. From this understanding we will learn healing approaches and tools that can support a more peaceful, trusting and respectful relationship to our bodies, and ourselves.
