Recharge and restore 

Hey there, amazing Mom,

I see you. I see the immense love you pour into being a mother, but I also sense that there's a weight on  your shoulders, like you might be feeling a little tapped out. Perhaps you're in a bit of a funk or a rut.

 

Guess what? You're not alone on this journey. What you're doing is both extraordinary and challenging, and you know what? It's high time for you to take a  well-deserved break – just for you.

Imagine hanging out with a bunch of other moms – some who seem like they've got it all figured out (even though we know we all don't)  and some who might be rocking that classic mom bun. Whoever you are, whatever your story, there's something truly special about connecting with other moms who get it, who understand the highs and lows of this wild ride.

The journey we're diving into is all about tapping into the incredible power that lies within you as a mother. Do you remember what made you want to do this? If you've forgotten, no worries. The mission of this series is to bring you back to that joy, that spark you once felt about motherhood. This is a judgment-free zone, a space where you can find comfort and camaraderie among fellow moms who totally get it.

Let's have a heart-to-heart – your well-being matters above all else. When you're thriving, everything else just falls into place. I'm here, arms wide open, ready to walk beside you on this incredible journey of transformation.

By the way, I'm Doree.

I've been a childbirth educator and doula for over two decades. I have bright red hair because I got the wrong dye one day and I loved how it looked. I am fun and serious lol. I love serving people. It is one thing I do for my own personal self-care. I enjoy music and dancing, hiking and laughing with my other mom friends.  I also have facilitated many diverse mom groups and I have a certification for postpartum group facilitation. With the mission to  helping mothers to connect and thrive together.

I have six kids, four of whom have special needs, so trust me, I know the ups and downs of parenting firsthand. I've been through postpartum depression and have walked alongside so many moms in support groups and mommy-and-me gatherings.  I get it – you need a space where you

can just be you, no judgment, where you can process and grow.

So, why nine weeks? Well, I see you forming these beautiful connections and finding your tribe during this time. I want to give you the space to build bonds and truly feel that support.

Now, let's chat about the cost. It's $150 for the entire nine-week journey. That is about 16 a week. Each week builds on the last, and every class is like a mini oasis of relaxation. Imagine it as a retreat get away, but you don't have to travel and it is spaced out over 9 weeks. We do have some scholarships available, but here's the thing – I want you to be all in. This is your dedicated time to recharge and connect, a sanctuary for your spirit as you embrace the incredible journey of motherhood. So what does that look like it looks like taking the time for yourself, but we are also all moms we get it if a baby is up all night or life throughs a curve ball. So if you miss a class or two no sweat, but show up on the facebook group still be connected so you get the benefits of sisterhood.

​​​​​

​​​​In each class, you'll get a little mission to tap into your inner strength, and you'll also have the chance to bond with other moms. And as the session winds down, we'll ease into a guided relaxation that'll recharge your energy for the week ahead. Trust me, you won't want to miss out on this incredible experience. And don't worry about the little ones – playcare's got your back, giving you the space to dive in, refresh, and emerge even stronger.

 

I can't wait to meet you and join you on this amazing journey together.

 

With warmth and anticipation,

Doree Handford
