about this event

Mama Glow #SoftLife Summer Series: Grounding and Healing for Birth Workers

To celebrate #SoftLife this summer, join Mama Glow as we offer free mindfulness, music, and movement in the outdoors! We are back outside and want you to join us for a gathering space, music, snacks along with free/low-cost services ranging from meditations to tarot readings to yoga and movement for our birth worker community as we gather and take a moment to pour into care within the community to then be of service to others with fullness and love. 

#SoftLife encompasses a lifestyle of joy and ease, a hashtag that originated in the Nigerian influencer community. 

Hosted by Mama Glow fellows Delena Alemayehu and Elisa Kim, each of these FREE sessions for Mama Glow Doulas will feature different Mama Glow community members offering their gifts to the community at large. Sessions will open with grounding with Elisa, lead into the main presenter and practice, and will close with musical tunes curated DJ Neli Nasty (aka Delena) – so be ready to dance! 

It’s been a while since we’ve been able to gather and we are back outside y’all! 

Calling all NYC and Tri-State Doulas! Come join us. And if you are located further away, please feel free to make arrangements to comes your doula siblings!
