FOR THE LOVE OF LIFE AND DEATH AND ALL OUR HUMANLY CYCLES
It all started when…
I was asked to be with a friend during the birth of her second child in April 2015. I came solely as a friend, as a sister, as a support with no previous experience in the birth world. I moaned with her, I massaged her, sang her songs, gave her water, laughed, cried, started my menstrual cycle early (I now call this sympathy contractions) and was FOREVER CHANGED by this experience she shared with me.
I remember having a very clear thought of, “that is FOR SURE the hardest thing EVER…..AND we (all women) are SOOOOooo capable, so fucking STRONG, and have everything we need to bring a child into this world”. All fear that I hadn’t even realized I carried about child birth completely dissolved. I was so inspired by the rawness, the primitive movement, the sounds, the long slow exhales, the glimpse of true Divine Feminine.
I left that experience blessed and grateful for life and death as I sensed that the portal of child birth is the same as the death portal. A strange place to be, one foot in reality as we know and the other in the mystery, the uncertainty, the place of limitless potential and transformation.
Through this experience I also received a piece of myself, a remembrance of my own wisdom. I remembered my ability to hold sacred space, to tap into my intuition to FULLY (more than anything I’ve ever done) be of service to my sisters. I feel passionate that womben deserve the support and knowledge to make informed decisions and have empowered birth experiences. I am honored to be doing this work and to be a witness of this right of passage.
WHAT A PRECIOUS THING LIFE IS…..
I am a beacon of light here to support, educate, advocate and empower mom throughout her transition from maiden to motherhood. I believe that you already have everything you need and all the wisdom is encoded into your bones. Sister, you’ve been doing this since the beginning of time!
I am here to help you remember your inherent wisdom. With evidence based information you can go into your pregnancy, labor and delivery making informed choices. Let’s talk about choice for a moment…you ALWAYS HAVE ONE (the most important one being how you respond, react, or non-react to any given situation). I will be by your side informing you on pros and cons for each option. Nothing is promised to you and it is important to remain open and flexible to whatever beautiful outcome there is.
