Mystic, Connecticut Baby Moon + Education
Friday evening, September 20 – Sunday evening, September 22, 2013
Join us in Mystic, Connecticut for a Baby Moon Education Retreat weekend of exploring, connecting, learning and enjoying. September is one of the most beautiful times of year to be in Mystic.
It’s a getaway with purpose – nearby, but far enough to feel “away” while you connect with your loved one and continue your work to own your birth.
The term Baby Moon was coined first by Sheila Kitzinger to describe the time a family spends nestled together after the birth of their baby, paralleling a honeymoon taking place after the wedding. In years since, a Baby Moon has become the trendy pre-baby vacation.
If you’re envisioning a no or low-intervention birth, if you know that birth is a state of wellness and you desire to birth your baby(ies) normally, if you trust the birth process and want to honor your experience and protect your memory of your birth, this retreat is for you!
We will incorporate education on normal birth and it’s emotional and physical aspects. Between meals and outings, our time together will include discussions, group activities, demonstrations, videos, creative expressions, movement, time to experiment and continue to build your trust in birth and help you to make informed, evidence-based choices.
Between meals and childbirth education workshop time, you will enjoy free time to visit the Mystic Seaport (you’ll receive two free tickets with your registration), Mystic Aquarium, Olde Mistick Village, hike local trails at the Nature Center, get a massage, take a swim, or check out Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods (about 1/2 hour from Mystic) and have time for a romantic dinner with your honey.
The September Baby Moon Education Retreat weekend is now open for registration. Escape the daily grind, enjoy time together before your baby arrives and get some sleep before the night feedings interrupt your snoozing.
