Meet Your Retreat Guides
Hi, I'm Colleen Stadlwieser (she/her). I am a birth keeper and yoga guide. My mission is to help you navigate the uncertainty of pregnancy, birth, postpartum and all the changes these bring to your body by integrating yoga, reflection and breath so that you discover your innate wisdom and find balance in your body, mind and soul.
Birth keeping has been in my blood for over 10 years and the journey has not always been straight forward for me... I'm a mother of eight children: 1 adopted, 2 biological living children, one failed adoption, and 4 biological angel babies. Yoga has been a gift that has helped me navigate my less than straight forward path to pregnancy and parenting.
I'm looking forward to helping you discover a Peaceful Beginning for you and baby!
Hi, I'mChantal Eder (she/her), a passionate movement specialist, and Child Birth Educator.
Through yoga, mindfulness, story telling and Birth Art, I help parents-to-be explore their hopes, fears and desires about birth and parenthood.
I am a mom of two! One wild child who entered the world in the back of an NYC Tax, and one who came earthside in the comforts of home.
I believe birth education is gathered in three ways: modern knowing (data and evidence based), inner knowing (intuition), and self knowing (personal experiences). Exploring all three can help parents feel more confident and informed about their choices in childbirth.

"The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never."- Osho
