Are you already a mother who had a negative pregnancy, birthing, or post partum experience in the past and wants to heal trauma to better prepare for this birth?
Perhaps you have noticed a repeating negative pattern in your personal life or relationships that you want to address to transform your life?
Maybe you are already aware of healing needed in your family lineage that you want to take responsibility for by cultivating your own self awareness?
If you are a pregnant person who wants to experience the healing potential of pregnancy and birth as a rites of passage to heal old wounds, transform your birthing experience, gain self knowledge of perceptions and limiting beliefs that cause you suffering in your life.
Maybe you are choosing a hospital birth this time around but want to experience adjunct care that wishes to support your emotional and spiritual experiences offered by a midwife.
Those of you who may not be comfortable with the idea of a home birth or don't have support from your partner of family to choose that option but wish to have holistic midwifery care and guidance to support you in having a more empowered birthing experience in the hospital.
Those of you who are longing for a deeper experience of yourself and want to take full advantage of this powerful moment in time when you are carrying new life within. With guidance inward, the changes you feel that are available to you through this experience can profoundly impact your transition into motherhood as well as give you tools to integrate the immensity of the experience of giving birth.
Those of you who wish to honor the transformational opportunity available at this time in your life with practice and rituals that will provide tangible tools for you in your life to heal old wounds and claim your power.
Why is this process so important at this time? Pregnancy and birthing is a most powerful event, one that deserves our attention and that can address cultural issues such as:
The cultural suppression of emotions, avoidance of pain, and lack of support to gaining self awareness leads to trauma in birth.
Treating pregnancy and birth as a medical event while ignoring the emotional and spiritual aspects of this major life event disempowers women's experiences.
Patriarchal oppression of women's experiences reinforces patterns of ancestral wounding and intergenerational trauma.
Religious and cultural taboos have separated women from their connection to source which is exactly what they need to feel supported and strong.
The tradition of midwifery care, by reintroducing the art of holistic healing can address the physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual challenges of a women's experience to provide life changing transformations that honor women's transition from maiden to mother or from traumatized/wounded mother to empowered mothers.
How can treating pregnancy and birth as an initiation lead to healing and transformation, you may wonder:
The pain and challenges of labor and birth mirror the contractions one may experience as they review their own inner wounding patterns. This powerful opportunity to undergo personal transformations, through exercises of presence and self awareness, prepares women to have more empowered birth experiences which support them to live more fulfilling lives.
When women are guided through their internal landscape with kindness and clarity, the facing of their own inner wounding can liberate and help them to heal from childhood trauma to be better resourced as parents. This helps stop the unconscious patterns of intergenerational trauma from being passed on to their children.
Women reclaiming birthing as an initiation gives them a context and meaning in our modern society as mothers which ultimately leads to healthier more intact family structures and can provide solutions for many of the social issues we face today.
Learning to connect with your inner landscape and defense patterns helps encourage more self awareness in all relationships which provides women with actual tools to experience healthy self love and care. A nourished and supported mother has more space to be present and conscious with her children who she is teaching through her actions.
Learning simple rituals and practices to integrate consciousness into your being helps one to cultivate an individualized spiritual life which nourishes and supports a more connected and happy life.
