Embodied Sister Circles
For Perinatal Professionals
What Are Embodied Sister Circles?
They are spaces for perinatal professionals to slow down and connect with their inner life, receive support from internal and external loving wisdom energies and process their emotions with compassionate witnessing within a facilitated circle…spaces for renewing their powerful heart offerings.
These circles are a collective project offered by Gena McCarthy MFT, Natashia Fuskman MFT and Czarina Bowers, Doula to promote community spiritual and emotional support circles and ceremonies for Perinatal Professionals.

Perinatal Professionals serve women in their expression of their feminine power, beings embodying into our world, and families in rites of Passages.
These are primal, valuable, personal, and community imprints for the parents and for the professionals attending them. They will evoke strong emotional, physical and spiritual experiences.
Providers caring for women and families during this time are literally experiencing others’ massive life changes all of the time.
For the Perinatal Professional it is a calling as well as a continuous growth experience. We are sometimes touched and expanded, sometimes triggered and contracted.
As Perinatal Professionals, we need support for our own growth, renewal, and balance so we can show up for these precious passages and feminine acts of power from a place of compassionate presence.
Embodiment Sister Circles are designed to offer a space for the perinatal professional to slow down and connect with their inner lives, receive support from internal and external loving wisdom energies and process their emotions with compassionate witnessing… renewing their powerful heart offerings.
Like our indigenous ancestors, the energies of the earth, elements, and loving wisdom beings, as they knew them, are an important part of our web of life.
These resources are available to help us and they, in turn, are nourished by our respect and honoring of our interdependent relationships with them.
