I had a Birth Goddess Coaching call with Katrina recently where we discussed my fears and concerns about birthing within the medical model.
She was really helpful for getting some thoughts and feelings out of my own head and for making some suggestions about next actions I could take.
I have to say I feel more confident not only in my own abilities for birthing, but what to do next in terms of further processing.
She also provided me with some suggestions for resources both my husband and I might like.
All in all, a very helpful and wonderful conversation.
Also she wrote about the Mind Body Soul issue of Empowering Birth Magazine:
I finally started reading the magazine! It looks wonderful.
I read the article about connecting with the soul of my baby as this was the one that most interested me anyways. It was great and even though that article was mostly about pre-pregnancy, I went straight into the bath and meditated and visualised and talked to my child. I’ve been doing it anyway, but it was great to have something validate these efforts 🙂
I also loved the part about working on the chakras and I had an issue pop up while I was reading it, so I also did some tarot and journal writing and began the clearing process of old trauma related to that specific thing. It was wonderful and I feel excellent.
So thank you for this magazine.
