The Hearth: A Gathering Place for Prenatal and Perinatal Somatics

We all want to Belong, to feel Heard and Seen, to know that someone is there.

Some of us are curious about our earliest experiences, others about connecting in the here and now.

We are holding a space for you to come, be with us, Kristin Sipley, Eileen Sendrey and Kate White to be a part of a community of people passionate about our beginning, our preconception, conception, prenatal, birth and after birth times. We kindle a fire, of connection, passion, and love for the work we are trained to do, so we are calling this pace The Hearth.

Welcome to the Hearth:

  • Heart(h)-centered connected practice to help you feel at home in your body, in your life, in our world on planet Earth
