The moment you see those two lines on a pregnancy test for the first time, it is the beginning of a whole new chapter in your life. You are now responsible for two lives. As you search for the answers to all the questions that arise, you are also finding out your choices and priorities about health, well-being, and childcare.
If you would like to prepare for birth and motherhood at a deeper level, pregnancy is unique chance to go on a journey to discover your inner fears, wishes, strengths, and challenges as a person.
I am here to both to help you navigate the Dutch system and to offer guidance in discovering the pregnancy and birth you wish.
I will also remind you to feel the miracle growing inside your body and to connect with your intuition and your baby.
Trust me, practicing to listen to the wisdom inside you will strengthen you as a mother.
My wish for you is...
that you grow together with your baby as a team during your pregnancy,
that this journey paves the way to a conscious birth and parenthood,
that I help you to discover and realize the birth that you wish for yourself and your child.
Pregnancy months pass by quickly, and the attention is usually focused on the practical, material, and medical aspects.
Is my baby healthy? We seem to seek the answers outside and look forward to our next ultrasound for reassurance.
What will my baby need? The urge to build a new nest for your baby is understandable, but we sometimes forget that the one thing the baby will absolutely need is you.
I invite you for a deep dive into your own belly. 9 months of new life growing in you. What a miracle! This is time when all the building blocks of your baby’s physical and emotional health are laid.
I would like to support you on your journey of conscious pregnancy, where you go within, to get to know yourself better and to already feel your baby's character.
With exercises to support this journey, you can build a connection with your body and your baby, and through this process, you can also discover the kind of birth and parenting you wish for yourself and your baby.
Let's walk the Path of MOKOŠ, your personal pregnancy journey.
MOKOŠ is the Slavic patroness of pregnant women who will inspire us during our journey together. During this journey you will discover:
* you wishes, fears, concerns, trauma's related to pregnancy & birth
* how to listen to your body and intuition
* how to find your balance between your own needs and those of others
* the self-care methods that rejuvenate you.
The Path of MOKOŠ includes 4-6 sessions during 4-6 months. In this program, I have incorporated the insights and experience I have gained working as a pregnancy coach and doula. We will remain in contact during this whole period and check in regularly.
The tools we will use will be weave together the physical, psychological, energetical, and spiritual aspects of counseling, doulaing, and healing as your situation asks. We will walk the path live and online.
The investment required is your time, devotion, and €500.
