WHEN A CHILD IS CONCEIVED, SO IS A MOTHER.
This month in our Wise Women Circle, we honour the Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month and focus on the identity shift that is experienced after loss of a child. Our guest educator, Sam, and I aim to provide support and language to help mothers express their challenging and confronting feelings through their voice and movement. As well as sharing knowledge about Matrescence, Sam and other mamas in the circle will share their own personal experiences of loss throughout their motherhood journeys. After this empowering and healing part of the circle, mamas can either choose to rest or to move on the mat to honour and embrace their yoni shakti, womb space energy, as the source of feminine intuition, connection, creativity and nurture. This circle is open to all mothers, mother-likes, mum-to-bes and primary care takers who lost their beloved ones.
Becoming a new mama can be disorientating whilst you navigate this new identity. Becoming a mama to a child that is not living even more. For the loss mother, the absence of their baby often means that society often doesn’t recognise mamas who have no living children. The conversations around mothering are starting to change. These mothers are being more honest and recognising that mothers need better support and better knowledge and understanding of this season in their lives. They need the same for mothers who have experienced loss. Navigating matrescence as a mother with a child who is not living is challenging and confronting. There are fewer spaces in our society to be honest and open conversations about how these mothers in grief feel. There is also a lack of language to express themselves. More spaces, support and connection to feel less alone in their journeys and a better understanding of their matrescence. We are working on providing these spaces for women, and joining us to share her experiences in our upcoming Wise-Women-Circle in the hope that it helps another mama.
Please share the news of this circle with a friend, family member or anyone you know who might benefit from this connection. We want them to know they are not alone and that there are people who understand what they are going through - that there are spaces where they can connect with other loss mamas.
These sharing circles provide you with an opportunity to share your stories and experiences of your motherhood journey - to be heard, held and supported. They are not about offering advice or fixing one another. Yoga practices and movement will also help you to embody your feelings and thoughts as a language in a creative and nurturing way on the mat.
No previous experience of women circle or yoga needed!
Come along for sharing and/or deep listening.
