NURTURE{BKLYN} NURTURES NEW & EXPECTING PARENTS!

At Nurture{Bklyn} we nurture confidence in expecting and new parents and provide support and resources for pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period extending into parenting in the first three years.  As a seasoned doula and childbirth educator, clinical social worker and mother of two, Nurture{Bklyn} founder Elizabeth Mangum-Sarach understands that pregnancy, postpartum & early parenthood are intensely beautiful and intensely demanding times in life.  Inspired by her work supporting families during these times, Elizabeth founded our Brooklyn space to create more community and ease for Brooklyn families.  We offer a warm and friendly space for new and & expecting parents to connect and to be nurtured by each other and our thriving NYC birth and wellness community.  Connect with other expecting parents at one of our pregnancy circles or take our special one-day childbirth preparation course, Freedom to Birth™!

Prenatal Yoga is a fantastic therapeutic modality for pregnant women.

Yogi Mama classes facilitate pranayama (breathing exercises), asanas (yoga postures & exercises), deep relaxation, child birth education, and a space for community connection. Our goal is that you leave the class feeling at peace, balanced, energized, and inspired. Our prenatal teacher Jenny has her 500 hour advanced training through Sivananda Yoga, is trained in Prenatal Yoga through Yoga Works, and trained in children’s and family yoga through Global Family Yoga.
