As a mother of three, Linda Goldsmith knows firsthand the exciting, nerve-racking potpourri of emotions that accompanies pregnancy. That's why the certified doula—or labor assistant—founded the Pregnancy Sanctuary, a space where expectant moms can concentrate on connecting with their babies, partners, and other pregnant women.
During weekly pregnancy support classes, attendees participate in art projects, as well as discussions that honestly probe their feelings about motherhood. Sacred pregnancy classes are taught at the pregnancy sanctuary, a relaxing place built specifically for pregnant women. Once the baby arrives, take a few hours to yourself by renting the sanctuary, built on tranquil grounds that include a garden and gazebo overlooking a koi fish pond.
