Preparing for the birth that you want takes deep delving into who you are. It reaches down into the core of you and challenges your thinking, your beliefs around yourself, and potentially your whole life. You are the only one who can do that for yourself.
The rewards from this work - this beautiful, deep work - will stay with you for the rest of your life.
So I want to be honest with you, preparing for birth can be challenging. Over the years I have been repeatedly told this by the women I have worked with – this process has made them question everything. It has transformed their thinking. And whilst it’s confronting at times, it’s also so worth it. Because the thing that they discover is: they are worth it.
Sometimes people think working with me means it will be me that conjures up the birth that they want. If only it was that easy!
The truth is, it will be you doing this work.
But, I will be by your side, walking this path with you as you find your own way. I’ll ask you questions about what you really want, what you are prepared to choose or not choose. I’ll check in regularly to see how you are feeling, what you are afraid of and how it can be worked through.
This process works. I’ve seen it time and again. It works because women commit to doing the work for themselves. They dig deep, they find out what they are prepared to do. Or not do.
This process is growing a group of people who are confident to question the status quo and who will find a path that is right for them. What makes this so powerful? That you will find it for yourself. Or maybe there won’t be power, maybe there will be an ordinariness to it, like it was always supposed to be that way. Maybe there will be both.
