Don't Miss Out

Pregnant Woman by Birch
For a Mother-to-Be
by: John O'Donohue

Nothing could have prepared your heart to open like this. 

From beyond the skies and the stars 
This echo arrived inside of you and started to pulse with life 
Each beat a tiny act of growth, 
Traversing all our ancient shapes, 
On its way home to itself.

Once it began, you were no longer your own. 
A new, more courageous you, offering itself 
In a new way to a presence you can sense 
But you have not seen or known. 

It has made you feel alone 
In a way you never knew before; 
Everyone else sees only from the outside 
What you feel and feed 
With every fibre of your being.

Never have you travelled farther inward 
Where words and thoughts become half-light 
unable to reach the fund of brightness 
Strengthening inside the night of your womb. 

Like some primeval moon, Your soul brightens 

The tides of essence 

That flow to your child. 


You know your life has changed forever, 
For in all the days and years to come, 
Distance will never be able to cut you off 
From the one you now carry 
For nine months under your heart. 

May you be blessed with quiet confidence 
That destiny will guide you and mind you. 

May the emerging spirit of your child 
Imbibe encouragement and joy 
From the continuous music of your heart, 
So that it can grow with ease, 
Respectant of wonder and welcome when its form is fully filled 

And it makes it journey out 
To see you and settle at last 
Relieved and glad in your arms


In the absence of the 'village', we have been actively cultivating a caring, inclusive community of parents since 2013!


Meet us during weekly groups, classes and events where all caregivers can connect, access resources and thrive

"The Nest gave me a wealth of resources to lean on, from the experts in Chelsea and Katie, to my community of mamas, I always felt held in safety and support. These mamas have become my partners, my friends, my rocks. I feel loved, seen, and welcomed."

- Emma Ezzell
