Labor of Love — tools and techniques to help you help your clients

Fall 2016 Geelong, Victoria, Australia
Fall 2016 Blaxland, NSW, Australia

I hear from women how they: 

  • Have regret over detailed birth plans that did not happen, or they feel were thwarted by their ‘support’ people.
  • Still wish, even decades later, that some aspect of their birth experience had been different.
  • Felt the very real fear of hurting their baby was used as a tool to get them relinquish their decision making process to people they had only met minutes earlier.
  • Felt betrayed by their body – they knew they ‘should have’ been able to accomplish this natural process.
  • Felt frustrated by their hired team, who they feel did not support them in the way they expected.
  • Censor their birth story when sharing it to make it seem they were happy about the outcome, though there was some aspect they are downright angry about. They don’t want to seem ungrateful or whiny.
  • Know their experience(s) birthing colored the very way they see the world, and the way they connect with future generations.
  • Want to release the anger, betrayal, and shame surrounding their less-than-peaceful experiences.

Are YOU at peace with your birthing experience? 

Do you (maybe even YEARS later):

  • Still ‘wish’ some part of your birthing experience was different?
  • Tell your birth story with lots of extra explaining about how “it HAD to be that way”
  • Want to be at peace with any aspect of your experience?

What would life be like if you could… ?

  • Release the feelings of shame or failure?
  • Recognize that you did do the best you could with the information, support, and energy you had at the time? 
  • Grow to love your experience and the contribution it made to who you are today?

Did you know you can release those feelings and painful memories without reliving or even talking about the experience?


Do you want to know how to get started?

New series:  Mothering the Mothering Mindset calls –  Third Tuesdays

Coming To Peace With A Less Than Peaceful Birth

Did you write a lovely birth plan that you were excited about yet the reality was nothing like your dream? Do you feel what actually occurred was unrecognizable or feel your plans were thwarted at every turn?

Carrying around the pain, anger, and shame from that experience can feel like a heavy weight. People after don’t even realize how heavy it is.

What would life be like if you could let go of that weight?  What if it were possible to release the past without reliving it?
That is exactly what I am offering in these calls. Join us for a call or register to get the recording.
You do not have to attend a workshop to participate in this call.
Register here – replay is available to registered participants who cannot attend in person.
