An intimate & interactive class for mamas-to-be hosted by birth doula Carson Meyer
Begins July 20, 2022 Meets every Wednesday on Zoom 5:00-6:30 PST
A year ago, in the midst of the pandemic, expecting parents began reaching out to me expressing feelings of isolation and concern regarding the ever-changing hospital restrictions. With the intention of providing a loving community for my clients, and the best tools for navigating this journey from a place of feeling informed and empowered, Growing Together was born.
This virtual 12-week circle for mothers covers everything from healthy pregnancy practices and nutrition, to childbirth education, comfort measures, postpartum care and breastfeeding preparation. Not only is it an all-in-one, in-depth class for expecting mothers, it is most importantly a safe space to explore all the questions and emotions that come with transitioning into the great unknown.
I am truly in awe of the amazing community of women - from all over the country - that this circle has brought together. The way they show up for themselves, their children and for one another with an open heart and mind gives me so much hope for the future. In a time where everything feels polarizing, there is nothing more important than coming together and holding space for this unique and sacred journey.
This 12 week circle & birth prep class meets weekly to discuss:
Nutrition for pregnancy & postpartum
Practices for preparing the mind & body for labor
Supporting the hormones of labor
Preparing for hospital or home birth
Evidence based resources & information
Building the partner tool kit
Journaling prompts & activities
Tips for environmentally conscious parenting practices
Community building with other parents
**Also includes access to private ongoing group chat with Carson to connect anytime for additional questions, support and resources .
Any expectant mammas out there looking for some amazing and helpful knowledge, as well as an awesome community, as you navigate being pregnant during a pandemic? Take this class! It's one of the best decisions I've made during this process, and I'm so grateful for everything I've learned!
I didn't realize how empowering and beautiful I would find pregnancy, but working with Carson has really shown me the beauty and given me the confidence to go into birth without fear.
My pregnancy and birth journey would not have been the same without Carson. Forever grateful for the space you gave me to find my way. Thank you sister.
As a second-time mamma I wasn't sure if I'd feel out of place joining Carson's Group. I shouldn't have even questioned it! Carson and the ladies in my GROWING TOGETHER group provided such an incredibly rewarding and empowering experience. I feel so informed, excited and even peaceful about brining my little boy into the world. Thank you Carson for all the knowledge, support and love!
What a pleasure to be part of Carson's GROWING TOGETHER class! Her abundant knowledge and attention to detail has helped me feel so much more confident and supported - not only in pregnancy and birth, but in regards to postpartum care and how to create a toxin-free environment for my coming bundle of joy as well! Her playful use of props and visuals help to make the many terms (which were new to me) more relatable and tangible. For me, the number one take away from this class, which I am forever grateful for, is the new found trust I have in myself. I was designed to carry and deliver a baby without fear. Bless you, Carson!
My pregnancy and birth journey would not have been the same without Carson and the beautiful community of women!
Just finished my mamas circle with the most incredible doula, Carson. I learn so much every time! I couldn't recommend signing up for her next one MORE!
Carson's wisdom and love guided me through pregnancy in the most beautiful way. Connecting with other mamas through her circle provided me with an incredible support system. You should join her upcoming circle.
This sanctuary of a circle made me feel prepared physically, but was also a beautiful supportive community to talk about my fears and questions around childbirth. Carson is a magical human with a gift for hiding space for people.
I'm in Carson's current class and it's amazing, empowering and beautiful. Can't recommend enough for any mamma-to-be!

After just one session I realized I made an incredibly important choice for my pregnancy! In addition to making new friends and finding a support system in the class, I received the most crucial education about what was going on with my body and my baby. Carson guided us all with scientific and intuition-led learning. I wish I could take it again! It was the highlight of my week, and one of the most special experiences of my pregnancy.
Carson has made me feel so confident and lessened my fears of birth and pregnancy! Loving this journey!

We can't recommend this thorough, informative and empowering course enough, led by the sweetest lady who covers everything from nutrition for pregnancy and postpartum to preparing the mind and body for labor, breastfeeding, supporting hormone and so much more. Mamas-to-be, you're in the best hands!
The best thing I did for myself
when I was pregnant was sign up for this class. I cannot
recommend it enough. Carson is an incredible teacher! It's just a big circle of learning, love and
support. Forever grateful!
Carson is an incredible beam of light and played such a large role in getting us ready for Jane's birth. If you are pregnant, I highly recommend taking advantage of this course.
Our amazing doula Carson is hosting an online prenatal circle . Her energy is so calming and soothing and she has some great suggestions for comfort and support during pregnancy! I'm obviously biased as she's one of my favorite people.
This angel of a person created a digital prenatal course. If I were pregnant again, I would sign up in a minute. Thank you Carson for sharing your spirit and gifts in this way.
Mamas all over can share in Carson's wisdom and gifts!
