spiritual birthing

During my pregnancy I was looking for something deeper than pre-natal classes. I valued knowing what to expect, but I wanted a more soulful connection; I wanted to trust the ancestral wisdom of my body, I wanted to connect to the spiritual guides surrounding my baby and my birth, I wanted to feel and hear my baby's needs, and most of all, I wanted to trust the process.

Through meditation, psychology sessions, shamanism, mystery schools, research and personal ritual, I discovered and created techniques to feel secure in my birthing process. I found that simply repeating "I am confident" was sweeping fears 'under the rug' and I knew that fear, whether conscious or unconscious, slows the labour process. These sessions are not Hypnobirthing or pre-natal classes. They are specifically focused to help you go deep within to find your inner wisdom and personal empowerment.

Sessions may be in person or via Skype.

TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • ways to deeply connect to your baby in preparation for birth.

  • techniques to help you listen to your own inherent wisdom.

  • the death of your 'maiden' side and the grieving process that surrounds this.

  • your birth as a mother and the new feelings arising.

  • connecting with the spirit guides surrounding your birth.

  • daily meditations supporting your upcoming birth.

  • how patterns of life may arise in birth.

  • ways to deal with the waiting period at the end of pregnancy.

  • looking at language as a way to feel empowered.

  • the use of mantras.

  • the use of labyrinths.

  • understanding your fears and hopes for the birthing process.

  • learning to release attachment to any ideas you might have surrounding birth.

Donna is truly special. She made my pregnancy such an empowering, beautiful and positive experience with her incredible birth preparation coaching and energy work. Highly skilled, fearlessly loving, supportive, and generous with her gifts, Donna is the kind of woman I would want by my side through anything. Her ability to integrate the mental, physical, and spiritual to unlock true strength and growth blew me away. She was my motherhood identity midwife, helping me prepare for this new role with such strength and skill that I am forever grateful. Donna has my utmost respect, love and thanks.

Working with Donna during the last month of my pregnancy was an incredible gift. She invited me to look at my deepest fears around birth, the ones I didn’t even want to speak out loud. Once I named them, she helped me to imagine what it would look like to be empowered in a frightening situation. This work was absolutely essential to my childbirth experience and allowed me to own and claim it as sacred, even though it did not go as I had planned. When I look back on all of the preparation I did for childbirth, the work I did with Donna was by far the most valuable and meaningful.

The birth prep sessions I did with Donna were some of the most important exercises I did during my pregnancy. Donna helped me identify and work through fears that I wasn’t previously able to articulate. After my sessions with Donna I felt calm, centered, and empowered. I found it extremely helpful to stay balanced in my last days of pregnancy as I waited for labour to begin. I would highly recommend this to any mama to be!

Donna is truly my spiritual birthing guide. I have 2 little ones and Donna played a significant role in both of my births.

She was my doula with baby one and before baby two, I took her spiritual birth prep sessions.

With Donna’s guidance I was able to confront my underlying fears. She also prepped me mentally & physically for both of my births. She not only supported and empowered me, but helped me stay calm and focused, intuitively using methods that worked for me. Donna stayed connected with me before, during and after my birth. I am grateful for her powerful presence and energy at my births and as I transitioned into motherhood. A true gift!

I will start by saying that without Donna we wouldn’t have achieved the natural birth we hoped for. Donna’s guidance prior to the birth and her calm reassurance, physical presence and her creativity during labor enabled me to birth my daughter naturally despite being in a hospital often known for high epidural-use.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude for Donna’s guidance. Using mundane words cannot attest to my deep and heartfelt gratitude, so I will simply say THANK YOU.
