Hold My Hand: Exploring the Importance of Balancing Protection and Freedom for Children through Art and Conversation on the Hamsa
Mama Said and community partner, BZBI temple, join together to explore the subject of child protection and freedom with Jewish mothers using the Hamsa. The Hamsa is an ancient symbol in both Judaism and Islam faiths that represents "The Hand of the Holy Woman". The Hamsa is a symbol of strength, protection and blessings across all faiths. Using this symbol, Mama said will help mothers to examine and navigate the critical subject of protecting their child while allowing them freedom to explore their world.
Join us for crafts, coffee & conversation facilitated by Mama Said. The event will be held on Wednesday, December 2nd at the BZBI Temple. Please arrive between 8:30- 9 AM. The event will begin at 9AM and end at 10 AM. Children are welcome to attend. Light fare will be provided and a $5 donation is encouraged. To RSVP, please email email@example.com.
At Mama Said, we celebrate mamas as real life wonder women. We want you to look and feel amazing, but most importantly, like yourself!
We are thrilled to partner with Stroller Strides/Fit4Mom Philly and Career Wardrobe for this fun-filled night out!
Sip on champagne while stylists from Anthropologie help you to build the perfect postpartum wardrobe while we discuss ways to strengthen body image and self acceptance.
We all know what it feels like to look at a full closet and still have "nothing" to wear. Adjusting to a new shape after having a child(ren) only complicates the process of "getting ready" and we're here to help!
We encourage you to bring clothing items from your own closets to get the stylists' guidance on incorporating existing items and new Anthro items!
MAMA THREAD OPPORTUNITY:
Mama Thread is the philanthropic branch of Mama Said. It is an effort to expose mamas to non-profit organizations that address maternal health and wellness in Philadelphia and offer opportunities to assist with these initiatives.
We also encourage you to bring clothing items and accessories to this workshop that you would like to donate to Career Wardrobe.
Career Wardrobe's mission is to empower women in transition by providing programs that inspire the confidence necessary to achieve self-sufficiency and pursue a productive career. We do this by providing professional work attire, educational programs, and networking tools and opportunities.
Bring your donations with you to Anthropologie and we will get them to Career Wardrobe for you!

INTIMACY IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP
Finding time for intimacy after having a baby can be challenging. After caring for your child all day it's hard enough to remember to tell your partner that you love them, let alone muster up enough energy to have sex. This workshop is designed to help women uncover new ways to be intimate with their partners after having a baby. Women will have the opportunity to share their stories, learn from one another, and get advice on how to bring the passion back into their love life.

She also has a postgraduate certification in Sex Therapy from the Council for Relationships. Hannah is passionate about helping you uncover and work through relationship or sexual issues that might be standing in the way of the relationship you deserve and desire.
