New Mama Support Groups

I found such comfort in your support group. It was so wonderful to talk to other mamas about the same issues and emotions I was going through. It was so cathartic to release my thoughts, feelings and emotions into this group and to know that other mamas felt the same way as me. I loved all of the spiritual rituals we did—the meditation, baby massage, sat nams. I left group feeling like “I can get through this. I am blessed” when I was having a rough week. There are not enough words for me to express my gratitude for what you did for me and my baby during our 4th trimester. I will think of our experience fondly forever.

I had the supreme fortune to experience two postpartum support groups with Khefri, each 8 weeks long, beginning at our baby’s age of 2 months and ending at nearly 7 months. Khefri’s presence and guided exercises (i.e. closing of the bones) helped me to heal trauma I was holding in my body, and even more, the group dynamics that were created through her leadership facilitated this healing process as well. I was even more struck at how she led each group differently based on the level of vulnerability, openness, and willingness of each group’s collective of women, which conveyed the adaptability of Khefri’s wisdom and gifts.

I had my first child at 47 years old. I was new in town, terrified, tired and alone. My son screamed the whole first class. I was skeptical when the class started because I couldn’t imagine my son ever being calm enough to let me get anything out of the group. Each Wednesday I dragged myself to group even though I had been up all night and my child was still crying non-stop. And each week I learned something new. Khefri was so patient and kind and her style of teaching was like nothing I had ever experienced. She taught us about our center and me specifically how much movement my son needs to calm down. I learned so much every week. I’m so happy I saw the class through and I tell every pregnant friend I have to find Khefri and involve her in their pregnancy. I wish I had. I’m so grateful for the experience in her class.

Khefri is deeply connected with the earth, has a rich soul, and shares knowledge rooted in ancient tradition. All the while, she has a spirit that is light and free that keeps her present in the here-and-now, which offers her the gift of sharing wisdom relevant to modern society. Her expansive ability supplies her the fuel to help women, men, and babies on their journey through transition, be it prenatal, postpartum, feeding, sleeping, or identity shifts through changing roles as parents. She holds the space to allow life to emerge, while her myriad experiences offer concrete facts to guide the experience.
