It Takes A Village

Mama's Circles - Online & In person

They say it takes a village to raise a child, yet so few of us have access to this in the modern world. Right now a mother is expected to juggle many roles and holds more responsibilities than ever.  

It’s scientifically proven that we are less reactive when we feel connected and heard by others. For centuries women and mothers gathered together in circles to speak their truth and feel held by other women. When we lost that, we lost our ability to make sense of ourselves.

It Takes A Village is a space for mothers to come together and feel seen and understood. A place to champion each other in one of the most important roles of society. Open to expectant mothers, mothers to children young and old, step mothers and mothers who have lost children (born or unborn), mothers with babes in arms and those yearning to be mothers. This is a portal to the mother archetype that lives within every one of us.

A donation based circle to make it accessible to all, please pay what you feel it's worth. Whether you are called to come and share or simply listen, this is a place to receive and be met exactly where you are. There will also be tools and coaching exercises to feel more connected in your parenting journey taken from Melissa's Raising Parents programme.

FAQ

What age children is this suitable for?

This is suitable for mothers with children of any age, also for step mothers and expectant mothers yet to meet their child.

Do you have to talk during the circle? (I'm shy!)

Whatever you feel comfortable with is right. If you prefer to listen and absorb the energy from other mothers that's fine. However for the zoom calls I ask for all cameras to be turned on so we can connect in some way. For every share that happens its beneficial for the whole collective.

What about fathers? 

It's true that men also need help with parenting as their role has also expanded. My Raising Parents programme is open to both sexes and supportive for the whole family. If you'd like to find out more head here.
