BIRTH STORY HEALING
Birth Story Healing for Parents...because your story matters.
Now that the birth is behind you, is it really?
What thoughts and feelings show up for you? Fear...Doubt...Shame? Self doubt or anger? Any of these may arise after giving birth and can resurface again and again, or pushed down leaving a parent with a sense of loneliness or deep sadness.
We are here for you. We’ve supported hundreds of birthing people and partners… We are a part of your new village...)
Whether it is your first birth or your tenth, birth is always an initiation, and sometimes can be deeply challenging.
Unwished-for events, unplanned outcomes, or a birth experience that is very different than expected can leave us with a sense of loss or confusion.
If not resolved these feelings sometimes last far beyond the experience itself, impacting daily life and even parenting. Even if your birth, on the surface, was just as you had hoped, there can still be small moments that bring up feelings of discomfort or angst, leading you to feel a disconnect.
Inspired by our work with Pam England’s trailblazing Birth Story Medicine® program, we have the training and experience to deeply listen to your story to help you untangle and reweave it. Our time together cannot change what happened but is carefully designed around your particular story and, like a soothing balm, will help you find what you need to create healing along with freedom to move forward in your life with greater ease and an open heart.
Birth Story Healing sessions typically last 60-90 minutes. It is important that your child(ren) remain with another parent or caregiver so that you can take this opportunity to fully focus on your healing. Sessions take place in your choice of several locations around Atlanta or virtually. Times are flexible based upon your needs.
COST: Birth Story Medicine® sessions are $85.

"My husband and I lost one of our twin boys at 15 1/2 weeks gestation. The loss was insurmountable, and as we approached the birth of our son I had terrible fears.
My doula put me in touch with Guina and assured me she would help me process and be emotionally prepared for the birth. Guina became our guardian angel. She held the purest space for me while I processed the experience and began to see the beauty of what life truly is.
She is the warmest most comforting soul and has a true gift with helping men and women work through trauma."

"I found Pam as a birth story listener when I was pregnant with my third child and feeling overwhelmed by past birth trauma. The work we did together lifted a heaviness from my life, and through it I realized how birth trauma had impacted my view of myself as a woman and as a mother. I was able to move forward with more peace and confidence about my upcoming birth and it turned out to be wonderful. I didn't realize how that would also set me up for a much better post partum experience. I highly recommend birth story listening to anyone who will listen to me 🙂 Pam has a gift of insight, and she created a gentle and caring experience for me."
