Village TALKS are monthly workshops that give you the opportunity to participate in a shared learning experience.
Village TALKS are topics related to birth and motherhood and are lead by experts in the community.
We host these meetings as an opportunity for you learn more about your options from pregnancy throughout motherhood, all while connecting with other women in the community.
Each month, we feature a different topic to gain deeper understanding about subjects that aren't usually covered in Chilbirth Classes. These opportunities give you in-depth preparation for your transition into parenthood and a chance to build a deeper relationship with The Mother's Village community.
You are welcomed and encouraged to attend as many Village TALKS as you like.
The Mother's Village also offers a FREE monthly Prenatal Support Group.
