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. That is why, at The Gentle Village, we will provide you with pregnancy and postnatal health services, education and support throughout your parenting journey.
