Reconnecting with Your Center after Pregnancy Loss: A Workshop for Mind, Body, and Spirit

Pregnancy loss is an issue that impacts many and yet remains deeply enshrouded in shame and silence. As a result many women experience ongoing emotional and physical challenges following a loss, and are often not afforded the time and space to process the experience.

This workshop is designed to help you connect with your emotional and physical self after pregnancy loss. Our time together will consist of gentle movement, journaling, guided visualization, discussion, and mindfulness, all aimed at helping you to integrate the experience of loss, feel greater ease within your body, and find support and community.

While we recognize that the needs and experiences of those who have experienced loss at different stages of pregnancy are different, we are leaving this workshop open to all women who have experienced pregnancy loss.  It is our hope to foster an environment of inclusivity and mutual support that will be beneficial to all women who have experienced a loss, regardless of type or how recent the loss was. We welcome questions about this so please feel free to reach out to us if you’d like to discuss this before signing up.

Connecting with your Center: Preparing Mind and Body for Childbirth and Beyond

  • Breastfeeding Center For Greater Washington (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Pregnancy is a time marked by change on a physical and emotional level. It’s easy to put so much focus on the baby that you lose track of yourself. This workshop is designed to help you tune into your needs throughout this transitional time, which will ultimately support you and your baby’s growth and development.  Our time together will consist of movement, breathing, mindfulness, and discussion aimed to help you surf the changes yet to come. Our hope is that you leave this workshop with a renewed sense of connection to your mind and body, a greater sense of community, and tools and strategies for deeper self-care.

This will be a workshop guided by Dr. Emma Basch and Manisha Tare, OTR/L, MPH.
