Always waiting for the other shoe to drop?
You've had a long, hard road trying to build your family.
Heal your body from the wounds of infertility, loss(es), pregnancy complications, preterm birth and birth trauma and finally stop living in fear
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’re sick of always feeling afraid, waiting for something horrible to happen, and you’re ready to be free from that fear so you can finally feel real joy again.
You no longer enjoy life, even though you smile. You're not present for special moments even though you're physically there. You yell more than you ever used to. You've become someone your partner doesn't recognize anymore.
You've developed a new chronic illness or autoimmune disease on top of everything else you've been through, leaving you doubting if your body is capable of doing anything right.
Pregnancy announcements, birth announcements, pregnant bellies - the triggers are everywhere 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.
You blame your body for everything you've been through, feeling a deep sense of betrayal that it couldn't take care of you and your baby/babies.
If this resonates and you’re determined to restore your health and wellness...
If you're ready to feel at peace on your family-building journey 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.
You've been living in survival mode for weeks, months or years, and your body is showing you in so many ways that it's time to stop, slow down, and heal.
You've realized this is not going to get better on its own.
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.
But you and I both know that’s not enough!
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 body.

reclaim your health and truly heal:
No one is teaching you how to feel safe in your body again
after everything you've already been through.
WHAT DOES FEELING SAFE
IN MY BODY
HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING?
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 affects our ability to get and stay pregnant, heal and recover postpartum. It also sets the stage for chronic illness and autoimmune diseases.
This explains why...
... you feel like "something is wrong" even though all of your blood work comes back in the normal range.
... you feel better after a call or appointment with your doctor, but you still find yourself Googling furiously in the middle of the night when you're certain something is going wrong.
... you're reassured after a late night call to your pediatrician but wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night, convinced your baby has stopped breathing.
... you feel calmer after a therapy or coaching session, only to find yourself feeling panicky when you feel the twinges of your period coming.
... you feel relaxed after an acupuncture appointment or doing a meditation, yet your migraines or stomach aches return several hours or days later.
... you still don't feel like yourself even though your fertility treatments, pregnancies, or birth traumas were 5 or 15 years ago.
