Childbirth and Breastfeeding Counseling

 

Preparation for childbirth and motherhood is an exciting and joyous time in a woman's life.

 

As a first time mother, you may have absolutely no idea what to expect. Hearing the stories and experiences of others may leave you feeling a bit unsure, maybe even a little scared.

 

If you've given birth before, you may be worried about how life will be with another child. Maybe you experienced a traumatic birth or struggled with a perinatal mood disorder and you want to avoid those experiences this time around.

 

Thinking about all the possible scenarios can be overwhelming.

 

The mind-body connection is a key element to experiencing an empowered birth, establishing a bond with your baby, breastfeeding and postpartum recovery.

 

Every thought and belief that you are holding onto will affect your experience of birth and motherhood, as well as your health and your baby's health.

 

A shift in your perception and narrative of the birthing process, breastfeeding, and your motherhood journey will lay the foundation for an empowering experience. 

 

My goal is to build a level of trust with you so that we can uncover and transmute any fears, doubts or blockages you have that may interfere with your desired outcome.

 

Our sessions will be aimed towards diving deep and addressing any thoughts, beliefs, and energies that need to be released before labor and birth.

 

These conscious and unconscious blocks can lead to a difficult birth, interfere with bonding and undermine your recovery postpartum.

 

I will draw upon my training in childbirth education, lactation counseling, meditation, visualization, EFT Tapping, affirmations, journaling, and art creation to reveal and heal.  

 

Each session will be filled with discussions of various evidence-based, holistic birth and breastfeeding practices. We will explore instinctual wisdom that will support and empower you to make informed decisions prenatally, during childbirth and postpartum. We will discuss the importance of exclusive breastfeeding and how to establish and maintain your breastfeeding goals.

 

Creating space in your mind, body, and spirit for a blissful transition from pregnancy to mothering is my mission and my purpose.

 

The transition and transformation of motherhood can be beautiful when we are lead by our own innate knowledge and when we fully embrace our power as women.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Nicole was very knowledgeable about everything that my family and I questioned. As first-time parents, we had so many questions and concerns. She definitely helped put our minds at ease. I am forever grateful for her and the support that she gave my family."
