The Gentle Village strongly believes in the wisdom of community support (the village) needed for raising and nurturing a mother and baby for this world. Village life fosters a sense of safety, inclusivity, purpose, acceptance, and importance. All of which is needed to thrive and nurture a person. Unfortunately, that village, seems to be lacking for most families in today's society. In the absence of the village, it is the mother who appears to struggle the most. This can impact on a mothers sense of self, her health, both physically and mentally. Unfortunately, society has restructured mothers to feel disempowered, guilty, unsafe and more anxious when seeking help. That is why, at The Gentle Village, we have a holistic approach when it comes to the health care needs of all mothers and their family, as a unit. We will provide you with health services and education, support and guidance to help you make informed and empowered decisions that are right for you, your family and your situation. We are here to support you throughout your parenting journey and becoming your 'village'.
