Event: Creative Honoring Workshop


A workshop to honor our babies who have died, as well as ourselves as Mothers, through creative expression & connection with others

Saturday, May 13th, 2017 / 2 – 5pm
Please join us in honoring your baby and yourself

The Dance Studio at Noe Valley Ministry
1021 Sanchez St (btwn 23rd & Elizabeth Streets)

The loss of a baby is a heartbreaking and profound experience. It is a journey of new and unexpected emotions that are sometimes difficult to navigate. In this workshop, we will honor our babies and ourselves through creative expression–sharing stories, connecting with others, writing, mindfulness and creating a keepsake to take home. We will set aside some time to honor ourselves as Mother’s and to celebrate, in our own way, Mother’s Day.

Who can attend: Anyone grieving the loss of a baby from pregnancy thru the first year of life

Cost to attend: $25/person (no one turned away for lack of funds) Materials and snacks provided

Registration: Required by Monday, May 8th. Please note that the workshop is full so we cannot currently accept any additional registrations. If you have questions, please contact us using the contact information below.
