Feeling scared during pregnancy?
Experience your pregnancy without the fear and anxiety of your past loss(es), pregnancy complications, or preterm birth
Does this sound like you?
You’ve tried all.the.things to help with your anxiety, fears and worries (yoga, deep breathing, meditation, therapy) but the calming effects just don’t stick and you're sick of it.
You’ve lost trust in the medical system because your voice was not heard or trusted in your previous pregnancy. This time you're ready to do whatever it takes to make sure that doesn't happen again.
You’re sick of always feeling afraid, waiting for the other shoe to drop, and you’re ready to be free from that fear so you can actually enjoy this pregnancy you've worked so hard for.
You've lost faith that your body can stay pregnant safely. You notice you're snapping at your partner and loved ones more often than ever before. You hate it but you can't stop.
Every twinge or pull you feel triggers you and sends you spiraling down a dark hole that you worked so hard to climb out of, and you do not want to live like this anymore.
If this resonates and you’re determined to support your body to have a healthy pregnancy...
If you're ready to feel joy and at peace during this pregnancy, no matter what lies ahead...
...you’re absolutely in the right place!
YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH SOME OF THE HARDEST EXPERIENCES A COUPLE SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO
You’ve experienced the soul-shattering moments of losing life. It takes your breath away, making it impossible to sleep, eat, be in the world without seeing pregnant bellies and babies everywhere.
You’ve waited in sheer terror as life hung in the balance, not knowing what would happen.
You’ve watched your baby fight for his/her life, never realizing just how fragile and strong the human body can be.
Every physical sensation in this pregnancy, from the heartburn to the round ligament pain, reminds you of what happened before and all you do is brace for the worst possible thing to happen again.
You've become terrified of the thing you've wanted most
You’ve probably heard from well-meaning loved ones and even professionals that you’re being too negative. You need to focus on the positive.
Let the past stay in the past and look forward. Just relax! (Insert eye roll)
But you and I both know that’s not what this is!
You’re not making a big deal out of nothing. You’re not being pessimistic or negative. You’re not crazy.
Your thoughts are not the problem.
After everything you've been through to grow your family,
you no longer feel safe in your pregnant body.
GOING THROUGH A
REQUIRES SPECIALIZED CARE
Unfortunately, our system leaves a significant gap in the care for women like you who you are going through a high-risk pregnancy,
especially after a complicated journey.
Your OB, MFM,
& other physicians
specialize in managing the physical aspects of your prenatal health through ultrasounds, bloodwork, exams and medical treatment
Your therapist, coach
specialize in helping you cope emotionally with the ups and downs, and help you process what you’re going through.
Your acupuncturist & meditation apps
specialize in immediate relaxation when you’re feeling anxious or worried
These are important pieces of the your prenatal health puzzle.
However, there is one missing piece that's critical to helping you
stay pregnant and reduce your risk of complications:
No one is teaching you how to feel safe to be pregnant again
after everything you've already been through.
WHAT DOES FEELING SAFE
IN MY BODY
HAVE TO DO WITH PREGNANCY?
When we don't feel safe in our bodies, our nervous system is dysregulated (meaning it doesn't function optimally), creating sensations and experiences we call anxiety or stress.
A dysregulated nervous system alters our endocrine (hormonal) system and
immune system, which increases our risk of developing many pregnancy complications.
This explains why...
... you feel better after a call or appointment with your OB or MFM, but you still find yourself Googling furiously in the middle of the night when you're certain something is going wrong.
... you feel calmer after a therapy or coaching session, or making a plan with your doula, only to find yourself feeling panicky when feel a pulling sensation or need to go to the bathroom.
... you feel relaxed after an acupuncture appointment or doing a meditation, yet your migraines or heart palpitations return several hours or days later.
Our work together completes your prenatal health care puzzle.
By learning the cutting-edge neurobiological techniques I teach, you will be able to:
Reset your nervous system so you can feel safe in your body again during your pregnancy and delivery.
Reduce your risk of pregnancy complications by restoring balance to your body systems.
Replace fear and anxiety with peace, confidence, and hope.

You are not broken. You are not weak. You are not a pessimist.
You have survived.
