Pregnancy Help Appreciation Week – Intentional Self-Care



We know that we should take time for self-care, but do we really understand the ways it can improve our work and stress levels? Join Tracie Shellhouse and Andrea Trudden as we celebrate Pregnancy Help Appreciation Week by turning our focus to caring for ourselves and our teams. Learn practical (and affordable!) things that you can do to bring your team together and celebrate how God is working through you to accomplish His work. Remember that self-care is not selfish, it’s necessary!

Be on the lookout Nov. 7-11 for emails from Heartbeat that include our special deals and surprises as we honor the work of the pregnancy help movement. Not receiving emails? Visit https://www.heartbeatservices.org/phc-appreciation or email support@heartbeatinternational.org.
