Explore the emotions and beliefs you have about becoming a parent. Develop new ways of observing your experiences as you undergo fertility treatment. Learn about your own prenatal and childhood experiences and what they mean for you as a parent.
Discuss the pros and cons of medical verses natural birth options. You will understand your options and your rights as a consumer of prenatal care from OB/GYNs and midwives. Learn the benefits of hiring a doula or taking a childbirth education class. Learn the importance of flexibility in your planning. Know the facts so you can communicate your choices to your care providers.
A doula supports you through labor, birth and immediate postpartum hours with physical and emotional comfort and advocacy. She is a hands-on resource for minimizing pain, stress, and distraction so you can focus on giving birth in whatever way works for you. She will communicate with family members, orient you while you are going through the birthing process and ensure you are fully cared for from the time your labor begins until the baby is happily in your arms.
Learn an infant-centered model of child birth and empower yourself with information that will support birth as it happens for your baby. Reduce stress and trauma for yourself and your newborn. Our approach is personalized to each family and is provided in private, short term segments to maximize your time and focus on the information most important to you.
Bonding is the process that shapes attachment. Attachment is a lifelong psycho-social construct that shapes the ways in which we engage in interpersonal relationships. Many care practices encouraged in today’s culture disrupt bonding and lead to insecurity. Insecurity is responsible for behavioral problems later in childhood. Learn how to support your child’s self esteem, cooperation, and ability to connect through trust-building relationships.
Tell us your story and begin to integrate the experience of childbirth into who you are now becoming as a parent. If your birth didn’t go according to plan, causing stress and disappointment, we can help you find comfort and realize your own strength. If you had an amazing birth we want to hear your process of empowerment. We provide an opportunity for you to tell your baby their birth story, offering tools for greater connection with your child.
After the birth of a child, leaving the home can feel overwhelming. To ensure families continue to receive support during this sensitive time we offer to bring our range of services including counseling, developmental education, birth healing work, bodywork and more to you.
The disappointment and confusion that occurs when a pregnancy is lost can get in the way of fully embracing a subsequent pregnancy or a plan to postpone another conception. Miscarriage, medically necessary abortion, or elective termination is a common place experience that goes vastly unrecognized. We will help you make meaning of your loss and move forward through integration rather than avoidance.
