motherhood one of joy and personal growth.
Why create a Pregnancy Circle?
Hong Kong is not particularly strong at catering to women who have a holistic approach to pregnancy and childbirth.
A holistic approach encompases the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well-being of the mother and baby. The Circle will also focus on creating deep respect for motherhood, the female body, and the intimacy of childbirth.
The local birth culture is often very medicalized and hospital-centred (attends to what’s best for the hospital/doctor) and this poses extra challenges for women who desire a holistic birth.
The Pregnancy Circle has been created to equip women to face these challenges more confidently by means of emotional, educational, practical and spiritual support. The Circle is lead by experienced doulas, who are able to answer questions and guide participants to their own conclusions and better understanding of their wants and needs.

What to expect from an Evening in the Pregnancy Circle?
In this Circle, you will meet pregnant women with similar questions and outlook.
Each evening will be dedicated to a theme, which will always be announced one week prior to the gathering via the Facebook Group page and email event announcement.
There will be time for check-ins at the beginning of the evening, followed by education on the theme of the night and practices that support the material taught.

Please note, that the Pregnancy Circle is not a therapy group. Each woman is asked to take responsibility for herself as she enters the Circle.
If a woman feels that she would like to receive some extra care to address deeper obstacles, she can book in for a One-on-One Consultation with one of us or, if of serious nature, we may refer her to a therapist.
While I did many things to prepare for childbirth, my husband and I really believe that having Molly alongside us before the birth and during the birth was absolutely essential and incredibly beneficial…. she was very helpful and guiding us to review and process all the knowledge we had accumulated from various courses and to make our final birth plan. We both felt much more confident going into labor from our discussions with Molly. ... Ultimately, our daughter’s birth was a wonderful experience for both of us, and while there are many factors that contributed to that, we feel Molly was a truly essential part of our team and was an instrumental part in making our experience so positive. - Amanda Mitchell, educational consultant and mother of one.

Hi, I'm Molly...
And I am an experienced birth doula, breastfeeding counselor and advocate for personal choices in birth.
My focus is on helping women find their internal strength during childbirth and into parenthood.
I want you to leverage this inevitable transformation from person to parent by understanding yourself and the process, and building the team to empower you.
During my Pregnancy Circle sessions, I’ll be focusing on practical ways to increase your knowledge and to build self-confidence to approach birth in a calm way.
Hi, I am Corinne...
And I’m an experienced and passionate Hong Kong based Doula, Women’s Group Leader and Prenatal Yoga Teacher. I want you to have a positive birth experience, so you may enter this new phase of your life with ease, joy and confidence. And I want you to feel supported while you are embarking on one of the most transformative experiences of your life.
I’ve been leading a successful Women’s Temple over the last 2 years here in Hong Kong and I know how much women gain from coming together regularly in a safe and private space.
This has led me to bring to life a new Circle specifically for Women who are walking the path of pregnancy and motherhood.
During my Pregnancy Circle sessions, I’ll be focusing on helping you understand the innate power and wisdom of your female body and encourage you to trust your abilities and inner guidance.
Welcome to the Holistic Pregnancy Circle led by Doulas ...
