Your 2-3 hour healing home visit will include:
- Active Listening and Meditative/Expressive Arts techniques to process your story and see where you need to heal.
- Help with adjustment to your new role and support for recovering physically, emotionally, and spiritually from the act of giving birth.
- Energetically release any effects of trauma for mom and baby(ies).
- Relax/Nap/Shower/Rejuvenate while I care for baby, do some light housework(load the dishwasher/fold laundry) and make you a cup of tea so that you have time to incorporate the healing.
Stress can be a very powerful motivator to get things done, and can help us to accomplish amazing physical feats, but if we are experiencing stress and do not feel like we are in control, or have feelings of helplessness or of not feeling heard or protected, then it can become trauma.
Trauma can make us feel unsafe in our environment or in our bodies. Our body manifests physical symptoms to let us know that there is trauma that still needs to be released. Many aspects of birth (going into the unknown, the physical challenges, the medical environment especially in emergencies) are inherently more likely to put you at risk for stress and trauma.
Birth is a spiritual as well as a physical opening and this can trigger old emotional wounds and old memories can surface. Birth and parenting a newborn can also reveal inter-generational family patterns that need to be healed. If you are experiencing nightmares, flashbacks or intrusive thoughts please reach out for help.
Trauma can be released from the body so that you have a chance to regain your emotional and physical health and create a better bond with your baby.
