Labour& birth support:

 

In the last weeks of pregnancy, when birth is getting closer some women might feel some fears and subconscious thoughts may pop up no matter who much you have research and how much you have prepare for this time. That’s when we might feel we need somebody closer to reassure us, to exactly understand what you are going through.

Breath work - Rebirthing sessions

Pregnancy, birth and the postnatal perior can trigger many emotions for many as it is also part of the big transformation. Sometimes it can be intense and overwhelming and when we look outside for help you might not find a holistic approach that is gentle, effective and liberating.

 

In our limbic brain we have so many emotional memories and imprints that can sometimes pop up as we breathe during the session coming from our time in the womb, birth, early childhood or traumatic event.

 

Breath work is very versatile, we can do at the comfort of your home, in nature, in a pool or bath tub, laying down, seated or dancing. Each session is unique and I don’t follow a script or guideline as the energy may present itself as it needs to. Sessions are two hours long and it includes breathing, a bit of talking and other dynamics.

 

This is for you if:

 

  • You feel like going deeper in your motherhood or fatherhood journey

  • You are feeling intense emotions and would like to discover a new tool to integrate in your life

  • Connect with your baby from another perspective

  • You feel generally overwhelmed and need some clarity

  • You want to find some peace in the relationship with your mother and father and/or parner

  • You feel like treating your mind, your heart and body at the same time and see them work in team to bring a much more meaningful reality

  • You miss feeling some expansion in your chest

Guided meditation &visualizations

These are simple and yet powerful tools to tune within and find the relaxation we may need to explore womanhood and motherhood from a much more loving space in connection with your baby as well.

Mediation can help you to:

 

  • Relax your body and mind

  • Bring a feeling of tranquility and inner peace

  • Find some clarity

  • Discover some parts of yourself

  • Connect and dedicate time to focus just on yourself and your baby in the womb

  • Make you explore motherhood from a different angle

 

This service is available for individual sessions, for couples and group sessions and last for an hour.
