Art Therapy for Pregnancy and Infant Loss


Come create art with others who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss as a way of healing. If pregnancy loss, your loss can be early or late in pregnancy, recent or a while ago, all are welcome. We are all in the process of healing. We are blessed to have local artist Tina Shoupe on hand to facilitate and guide us as we create. Lots and lots of supplies will be on hand, and even a few ideas in case you are stuck.

At The Plains Library

The Plains Library is offering a free series of prenatal yoga classes each Friday, beginning March 27 thru April 24 at 11:00am. This will be a series of 5 classes presented by Kristen Wade E-RYT200, who has specialized training in prenatal and children’s yoga. As well as yoga, there will be handouts of songs and rhymes each week provided by Children’s Librarian, Betty Ranck. If you have preschool age children they are invited to attend and take part in activities provided by Betty during the class. This is a wonderful opportunity to relax for an hour each week and meet other young mothers. Learn how you can enrich the lives of your children by sharing books and how the library can help.

Following this series there will be a special luncheon for parents to learn about Early Literacy. There will be free books for all attendees. The Early Literacy Luncheon will take place May 1 @ 11:00.
