We are working on a birthing resource program for the fall at our studio in Greenfield.
If you would like to offer a workshop or series of classes please contact us by August 1st.

If you would like to offer a free informational class we are currently not charging rent for those of you who do this and we still include you in our advertising so, deadline for that is also Aug 1st.

Regarding the biannual birth fairs:
If you'd like to represent your business/services/organization please contact us by Sept 1st (the upcoming birth fair is the first Saturday of Oct).

You will need to bring your own table and display and will be given 25 fliers to post in your area to help promote the fair.
Table fees are $25 due by Sept 1st. This fee is non-refundable if you do not show up at the fair since it is invested in advertising the event.

For last minute attendees who sign up after Sept 1st, the table fee increases to $35 and you are not mentioned in as much of the advertising.

The fair will occur from 1 to 5 pm.

If you are a GRDN member, then your table fee is $20.

If you volunteer to help promote and run the birth fair, your table fee is waived (we can have up to 3 volunteers).


The studio is about 1100 square feet with big westward facing windows. It is located on Main Street in Greenfield MA (a couple doors down from Greenfields Market). There is ample free parking in back.

Close to interstate 91, rt 2 and rt 5 & 10.

There is a small semi-private room for those of you who'd like to offer private consultations or bodywork
