Attend a pregnancy retreat
The Sacred Pregnancy & Conscious Birth Retreat might be a day shy from being on a weekend but we thought it would be good to let preggy mamas to know about it anyway. At the retreat you’ll learn about sacred spaces, gentle birthing, the basics of hypnobirthing for a holistic birth and optimal fetal positioning techniques for easier births. There will also be a pre-natal yoga session and a mother blessing ceremony. The event is happening on Monday, August 31, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at The Parenting Emporium, Quezon City. Attendance fee is P4,000. For more info, visit the Conscious Birth Manila Facebook page.
