Pregnancy transforms us
Birth cracks us open
New motherhood expands us
Pregnancy and early motherhood are a unique time that stretches our minds, hearts, and bodies into something new.
We may feel connected or disconnected to our bodies and baby during this time. We may feel uncertain about the journey ahead, about giving birth, about the after.
We are then tasked to define who we are amongst the scatter pieces of self that lay before us. We want to tap into our intuition, connect with our partners, and prepare confidently for what is to come. We want to birth in sovereignty, with support, and surrounded with love. We then want to heal our bodies, process any trauma, reconcile who we were with who we are now, and who we want to be.
Giving birth to a baby and to a new version of self can feel overwhelming, scary, or lonely.
But it doesn’t have to–
The Missing Piece in Maternity Care
This is where I come in.
The reality of maternity care in the United States is that most women giving birth with an OBGYN will only spend a collective 40 to 80 minutes talking to their provider before birth, and only receive 1 to 2 postpartum appointments after. It’s disheartening to hear how many women are receiving 5 minute prenatal visits after 1-2 hours of wait time. In these visits, it is rare that women’s questions and concerns are being heard and answered as fundal height is measured and a doppler listens to the baby’s heartbeat. This simply is not enough time to get to know the woman or her goals for the birth process. Fortunately, those in the care of midwives receive hour-long visits, but even those women may wish for more support before and after birth.
You know you want more knowledge, more support, more hands on care, more options, more love, and more resources. You want to work with someone who understands your emotional, spiritual, and physical needs in this tender time. You want something that feels deep, sacred, and held.
Allow me to see you and hold you in your transformation from pregnancy to motherhood. Allow me to support you in forging a deeper connection to your sovereignty, your body, your baby, your partner, and your birth process. Allow me to guide you in mining the depths of your psyche, learning your new identity, finding embodiment as a mother, healing generational wounds, and stepping confidently into parenthood.
You want something that goes beyond the basics.
