FREE Mama Drop-In
Join us for our free mama drop-in every other Monday, from 10:30-11:30am. This is a free two-hour drop-in – come enjoy complimentary coffee and tea (with thanks to Starbucks!) and build relationships with other mamas, parents, and caregivers in your community.
This relaxed drop-in happens in one of our studios at West End Mamas York Region (Leslie, just north of Mulock), and will give you the opportunity to meet other parents, feed and change your baby, and have your questions answered by a member of our postpartum doula team, if you’d like. More than anything though, we want this to be a comfortable place for you to come hang out and relax with your little one.
Space is limited for these drop-ins – please register to secure your spot. Once you’re registered, you can drop in anytime between 10:30-12:30 – no worries if you’re running late – feel free to come for as long or as little time as you’d like.
If for any reason your plans change and you can no longer attend, please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or cancel your registration online, so that someone else may take your spot.
This event is free – parents, care-givers, friends and family are all welcome.
This event is free and requires pre-registration. If for any reason your plans change and you can no longer attend, please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com or cancel your registration online, so that someone else may take your spot.

- Liliana CustodioHypnoBirthing® Instructor
Liliana believes that the breath is both an anchor and a doorway in cultivating a quiet mind, a relaxed body and a balanced life. The breath is a constant regardless of our life’s journey or milestones. Her interest and passion for embracing life’s moments with complete mind/body presence first led her into the field of social work and then into mindfulness meditation and that is where her own journey into childbirth education began over eight years ago.
Liliana became a certified HypnoBirthing® Childbirth educator to support women as they connect to their unique, powerful and innate wisdom to give birth in a calm and confident way. It is a beautiful and sacred moment when women begin to recognize and trust their bodies as their most intimate teacher. The role of the birth partner throughout the birthing process is no less important as they are the protectors of space and the voice of encouragement and comfort.
As your journey unfolds, Liliana’s intention is to empower and guide you, along with your birth partner, towards an informed, calm and mindful pregnancy and birthing experience. She believes every woman has the right to choose and be informed of all her options when it comes to childbirth and to surround herself with health care practitioners that fully support and align with her birth preferences and values. Liliana would be honoured to be part of your journey by supporting and guiding you in the miracle of birth. If you are interested in connecting on a deeper level to your birthing body and participating with the birthing process, then HypnoBirthing® childbirth classes are for you.
