The effect of the session was a long-lasting one: I was able to be calmer for another week of my pregnancy, and then I use the relaxation techniques Samantha taught me during the labor. They were priceless and I don't know how I could have death with the pain without them.
Being afraid to give birth is totally normal because most pregnant people lack a frame of reference for positive birth experiences. Movies, television, and well-meaning people bombard you with imagery depicting birth as a nightmare that makes you act crazy and always puts your life at risk. Unconsciously, we "try on" these stories and they trigger a fear response that tells us to freeze up or run away from the scary thing.
But addressing what scares you most about giving birth doesn't have to be scary business. Prenatal one-on-one sessions give you space and time to pinpoint specific fears, concerns, and anxieties about giving birth. This work is particularly helpful for anyone who had a traumatic previous birth and wants to embody this pregnancy with new energy. I have extensive experience building tools for clients with histories of anxiety and panic attacks. My prenatal healing sessions are dynamic just like you. Sessions weave together a variety of healing and coaching modalities to create the change and healing you seek. Each appointment is 1.5 hours of energy and attention directed at the areas where you most desire healing and change. We can meet in person or via Skype.
