Holistic Prenatal, Birth & Postpartum Support
ReStoryative Somatics Prenatal Sessions are tailored to your individual changing needs throughout the prenatal (or even preconception) period. ReStoryative Somatics core principals of containment, connection, curiosity, compassion, and commitment are integrated into prenatal massage, myofascial, and craniosacral bodywork, yoga therapy, and emotional process/somatic trauma healing work, as well as educational support in the areas of herbal and nutritional support, couple’s labor support and birth preparation information.
Cultivating trust and intimacy in the prenatal work provides a depth of knowledge that facilitates great support through the birth process. Women come to the birth experience informed by a lifetime of perceptions, personal and cultural narratives about what it means to be a woman, a mother, a partner. We are each subject to our own fears and insecurities, as well as our individual resources and connections to our power. I support women through the birth process with a unique focus on each woman’s experience of safety, emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual.
ReStoryative Somatics Postpartum Sessions are a time to integrate the changes, celebrate your initiation into motherhood, as well as heal from any trauma or pain that may have occurred. With a focus on breastfeeding support, maternal and newborn bodywork and emotional resiliency.
Sometimes the pregnancy or birth experience results in tragedy, trauma, even loss. ReStoryative Somatics offers gentle nurturing tools for processing emotions and integrating the loss, without becoming stuck in trauma.
