Managing the Mixed Feelings of Motherhood – November 21 OR Dec 12th
Do you:
have mixed feelings about motherhood?
worry you are not bonding with your child?
think you are not normal and hope nobody finds out?

Sometimes you feel betrayed by your body, your caregiver, the “Hollywood version” of motherhood, or your own expectations.  When our expectations and reality are separated from one another we can be really hard on ourselves, and admitting we are beating ourselves up can be even harder. Join Lori Barklage from Birthing Peace Within as we explore this little-discussed (but common!) phenomenon and what you can do to heal and STOP beating yourself up.

Betrayed by Pregnancy or Birth – December 19th

It was supposed to be amazing. It wasn’t.

You are not a Bad Mom for feeling traumatized when others say ‘you are  lucky… it could have been worse’ or ‘at least you have a healthy baby.’

Maybe you had a pregnancy or birth that others agree was traumatic, and maybe others think it was ‘good enough’ yet you still feel traumatized.

Your feelings are for you to define, and the feelings surrounding your pain are not something that needs to be defended to people who don’t understand. In this session with Lori Barklage from Birthing Peace Within you will hear from others who feel as you do and learn what you can do to come to peace with a traumatic birth or pregnancy.

I am so happy we are  going to be working together bringing more peace in your life surrounding your birth(s). This is an area of your life that directly affects every other area of your life. The energy invested in our experience(s) has begun re-investing itself and you are helping by making conscious choices about where to invest it.

The Fourth-Trimester Package $1850.00

I have only a few slots available for this package of private coaching sessions – these are interactive sessions where you and I work together specifically on what comes up for YOU.  We talk  by phone once a week for 9 sessions over 12 weeks to help support your journey to peace.

With the purchase of this package you and I will work together to find a time that works with your schedule.

With this package you receive:

  1. My Coming to Peace with a Less-Than-Peaceful Birth Workbook. This will be mailed to you via snail-mail following our first session.
  2. 9 private one-on-one clarity calls over the course of 12 weeks.
