The first thing I want you to know is that you are enough.
The road to becoming--or being-- a new mom can send your mind on a thousand tangents, many of them leaving you feeling depleted, incapable, unprepared, scared and alone. My role, should you decide to work with me, is to remind you of your essential perfect nature. I will help you rein in your mind, find ease in your body and give you tools you can use to weather the ups and downs of pregnancy and motherhood with grace.
When you work with Bright Life Mama, I promise to help you boldly honor this sacred, transformational time in your life in the way that feels best to you. Modern life leaves a mother-to-be or new mom much on her own, but there are communities of women, like this one, where you are honored and supported in wanting to slow down and take it all in.
My approach is effective because it cares for a mother's well-being on multiple levels:
- Practical, embodied knowledge. Having a baby is a very physical experience. Using yoga and meditation practices specifically designed for the pregnant and recovering postpartum body at each stage, relaxation and labor coping techniques and more, I will help you navigate gracefully through the physical and emotional changes happening in your body.
- Spiritual Empowerment. When I became pregnant for the first time, my perspective on so many things changed. I searched for answers in a wide range of places, only to discover, with the guidance of spiritual teachers further down the path, a deep reservoir of knowledge, safety and trust within. I will draw from the variety of teachings given to me from my teachers to offer you an opportunity to move deeper into your own shifts in perspective--a deeper sense of acceptance, surrender, trust in your intuition, so that you may experience your pregnancy and motherhood with the greatest amount of ease possible.
- Support and Community. Women are not meant to mother alone. It's a huge commitment and journey, and you're not made to (and don't have to) do it without support. Sometimes this support is about receiving, other times giving to another mom in need brings the healing we need for ourselves. My intention is that each interaction you have with Bright Life Mama--both with me and the community at large--is helpful, nurturing and reminds you that you are in good company at all times.
