It all starts with birth:
the birth of your child and the birth of you as a mother.
How you start this journey together is bound to leave lasting memories and impact on you as a woman and on your child as a person.
All the core reasons to invest in the mental preparation for birth and beyond.
Preparing for birth is preparing to let go:
of your fears,
of your preconceptions,
of your expectations
To open up for:
the flow of the moment,
the wisdom of your body.
The crux of the self-care and parenting skills you will need during the post-partum period, the beginning of the transition to your new life cycle.
My wish for you IS...
that you discover your power as a woman,
that your pregnancy and birth feeds your post-partum and motherhood,
that I ride these waves with you.
Birth - the journey that leaves lasting memories and impact on you as a woman and on your child as a person.
Whether you are a first-time mother navigating your way or a second (or third) time mother who would like to process your previous birth and post-partum and would like do it differently this time, I am here to support you with the physical, psychological, and spiritual support you need for a conscious birth for you and your child.
I am ready to walk with you the Path of UMAY, your personal birth journey.
UMAY ANA is the Turkic mother goddess protecting women and children who will inspire us during this journey. Through this journey you will:
* process previous birth trauma so that you can make a fresh start
* receive the physical and mental tools you will need to relax
* learn to slow down and to listen to your body and your baby
* to go with the flow of birth & post-partum.
The Path of UMAY includes 4-6 sessions during 4-6 months. In this program, I have incorporated the insights and experience I have gained working as birth coach and doula. We will remain in contact during this whole period and check in regularly.
The tools we will use will be weave together the physical, psychological, energetical, and spiritual aspects of counseling, doulaing, and healing as your situation asks. We will walk the path live and online.
The investment required is your time, devotion, and €500.
