Weeks one and two: From moving day to inaugural classes.
Luckily, your husband is an organized and amazing packer, and your family and friends are chomping at the bit to help (thanks guys!).
This was the scene on Saturday January 11th. I found myself dropping off one package of carefully prepared placenta capsules to a client on the eve of moving day and picking another sacred placenta up on the way home. The second set of capsules were lovingly prepared the morning of moving day before the rest of my household were even sipping their morning coffee. All in a day's work!
The week spanning January 12th to 19th flew by in a blur of getting things done. A house cleaned from top to bottom, belongings moved and rearranged, two rooms painted, the start of our first set of prenatal classes in the new space, Mission's first ever Prenatal In-A-Day, and Mission Midwifery's big move and set-up in their new home. 7514 Welton Street is flourishing and all systems are go!
This Monday saw a collective of amazing women taking a big breath and getting ready to dive in. Tuesday marked the first clinic day for Mission Midwifery and the first Prenatal Yoga class back for me since having my own baby. Everything went off without a hitch. Erin and her midwifery student Rochelle welcomed smiling clients into the new space with pride, and I revelled in the beauty of Mamas taking time for themselves and bellies in motion. As I sit and type, Jo asleep on my chest, I can hear the joyful arrivals and departures of Shannon's first day of clinic happening downstairs. With the sun streaming in lighting up the gabled ceiling of my little family's new living space, I feel incredibly lucky to be where I am.
