A note from our CBE Facilitator

" In CBE class, we create such an intimate, empowering & sacred space within the Village to be open and vulnerable; to become grounded in our journeys, to expand our minds through knowledge and experience to help us unlearn and relearn new inner standing of pregnancy, childbirth & postpartum. as well move our bodies!!

We connected with each other but especially with our partners, empowering our partners to show up for us in ways that speak our love language ." -Carmen Shelton
