Its not good enough that you and your baby survived birth.
No one thing defines a difficult birth and no one can define it for you.
You deserve to feel whole again.
When we don’t have a chance or the right guidance to heal from our birth experience, dynamics can get set in motion that are challenging to unwind down the road.
After you birth a baby, you are forever changed.
Because we get so caught up in life after a baby, and our culture doesn’t provide much space for the postpartum time, we often don’t have the time or space we need to truly metabolize and integrate our birth experience.
That’s why I designed this series of guided meditations and visualizations, so that you have skillful guidance moving through this sensitive material.
