Movement and Journaling Workshops for Women & Birthing People Who Have Experienced Baby Loss

About the workshops

Yewande 103 presents a series of 4 x free 2-hour workshops using movement & creative writing to have supportive conversations and connect with other bereaved parents.


Each session will start with a gentle ‘check-in’ and close with a guided check-out. We will also ensure time after each scheduled workshop for a break-out space for more informal connections between participants/opportunities and also space for optional sharing.


This will be a relaxed workshop environment, with tea, snacks and regular breaks.  


The workshops are supported by South East London Local Maternity and Neonatal Services and will take place in South East London in Autumn 2023


There will be no time limit on when the bereavement took place. Loss can have happened at any point in a person's lifetime.


This offering is informed by the Yewande 103 team’s lived experience of baby loss & the wider social context around inequities within maternal health and parental loss.

What to expect

The sessions will gently and collaboratively navigate themes of repair within loss,  honouring self within the impact of loss, connecting to inner voice, exploring how voices have been received and held within current maternal care frameworks.

  2. Arrival warm-up

  3. Gentle movement practice

  4. Creative writing practice

  5. Group discussion and check
