Birthing children is a monumental (and AMAZING) rite of passage, and it can be really hard. Then you're expected to know just how to feed, love, and comfort them. And yourself. And perhaps your partner. (And hopefully, also your own dreams, vitality, and joy.) That's a really tall order. I can help.
Based on my own birth & parenting journey, along with my work in psychotherapy and coaching, I offer safe and transformative space for moms of all kinds to share, process, and integrate their birth experiences. This re-telling can be especially helpful for folks working through traumatic or disempowering birth experiences, or difficult postpartum recoveries. Even if this is not your first child, this is your first this child. For the most part, what they need is so much simpler than the mommy fear-mongerers would have you believe, and you may be needing a whole lot more.
For Postpartum clients, I offer in-depth in-person work plus periodic phone sessions throughout. This program is a journey toward integration of the birth experience and the new parent role, with a focus on creative self-expression that culminates in a client-driven piece (poetry, art, performance, etc.) made to honor this transition. For rates and details, schedule a free phone consultation
—I'd love to chat with you!
