Closing the Birthing Year: a postpartum circle of healing and renewal

  • Wild Hearts Wellness 4230 Northeast Fremont Street Portland, OR, 97213 United States (map)

Our bodies and spirit undergo incredible transformation in the birthing year: we bravely open ourselves to the new life that we carry and birth our children into this world.  We rest, connect to our babies, and gradually, we are ready to close the birthing year and return to ourselves as women.

Annie Gilligan, a postpartum doula and teacher, invites you to consciously close the birthing year through this nourishing afternoon with new moms and birth healers.  Together we will mark the close of the birthing year by honoring what we have experienced and what we know to be true for ourselves. Participants will also be offered the opportunity for restorative movement and a gentle closing the body with a birth shawl called a rebozo.  

 3PM - 5PM, Saturday, October 5th, 2019

$125 at the door ($95 if you sign up by January 25th)

Limited to 8 participants— register early by emailing Annie at

Annie is a mom to two school-age boys, a postpartum doula and a teacher.  She has learned that nourishing the mother through the childbearing years is essential for personal and family well-being.  Her hope is that Closing the Birthing Year offers postpartum women a space for nourishment, connection, and empowerment in this time of transformation and growth.
