Spring is almost here…can you feel it? It might still feel winter a time or two yet because we all know how Regina winters can be. A sure sign of spring for me is all the dancing festivals my children are in! We go from a few little performances to weekends of dance after dance and costume change after costume change.
If you are expecting a baby you might feel a little like your life is changing seasons, too. Pregnancy can be a lot of releasing, changing & receiving - a time a something new coming into your life. How exciting!
With pregnancy and new babies we sometimes have clear goals and desired experiences and options, yet many struggle to achieve those because they lack the support to get there.
To achieve your desired birth experience, feeding desires & transition into parenthood two things rise above everything else to get there.
Now, I FULLY recognize that birth and babies cannot be boxed up & wrapped as nicely and easily as I make it sound. I also now these experiences are as unique as the people giving birth and the babies that are soon to be joining the world. BUT, what I also know, is that you have a system to navigate during this time period. You have care providers looking after you and your baby, you likely have a hospital to go to where you are going to face a variety of choices and options (yes, home birth is an option, but a small number of people are choosing this as an option). This is where support and systems help. You can make a plan to be able to address the options and choices presented, or figure out how to communicate with your care provider to see if there are options you have not yet been presented.
Do you have support and a system in place to support the goals you want to achieve?
I have serval options for you to get the level of support and education on the tools and techniques used to help you experience your ideal birth.
1. Educational support
I teach a comprehensive childbirth education class, called Your Birth Experience (YBE). I can teach this in a group setting or one-on-one.
2. Doula support
I provide doula support & have several packaged to best meet your goals. Some of the doula packages include the above YBE class above. All doula packages include the YBE manual, regardless of full class or not.
I would love to help support you through your experience, using techniques and tools that many clients have found instrumental in achieving their ideal birth experience and transition to parenthood.
Change is in your future and I can help you transition more effectively than going at it on your own. Support is a game changer when going through pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. The impact of support lasts a long time and you deserve a great support team!
I have been doulaing for many years and I love watching my clients transition into parenthood, becoming confident, empowered & successful in their new roles.
