UIWONA’s Nine Moons Prenatal Program is a unique prenatal program that empowers and prepares expecting women on their individual birthing journeys and the arrival of these precious gifts to the village.
All women of Indigenous, Inuit, or Metis ancestry or having a child with Indigenous, Inuit, or Metis ancestry, who are interested in including elements of Indigenous culture into the birthing experience are welcome.
This 6 week prenatal series includes everything from learning about prenatal health and birth to cultural traditions for pregnancy and birth.
Our professional midwife, Deborak Kozlick, along with our amazing Elders and Cultural Facilitators are here to help prepare you for this incredible life experience, and answer any of your questions.
