Mandalas are used by people in many cultures to find spiritual or emotional wholeness and help them look deep within to find peace, strength, and a sense of universal connectedness. Mandalas are both beautiful pieces of art and a meditative journey for the creator/artist. Janine feels like the symbolism of the Mandala is beautifully relevant to out of hospital midwifery care, the holistic health journey of many of her clients, and those in the childbearing year.
