Homebirth-Always openings In-hospital-some 2022 openings
You and me, 1:1 virtually or in person for 90 minutes.
You share your birth story, according to YOU.
Whether your emotions range from anger, sadness, anxiety, self-blame, guilt, or acceptance, this session is for you.
Whether you see it that your birth was sabotaged by the system, a true emergency, or you birthed alone in fear, this session is for you.
Women come here at any time in their lives: 2 days post birth, 80 years post birth, or somewhere between.
We begin with a brief grounding ceremony.
Next, you share why you're here and what you hope to get out of the session.
Then, you talk, let it out! I'm the container for your story.
This may be the first time you shared your story in full authenticity.
You may need to fully feel the deep wound in your body caused by the robbing of your birth.
You may move toward release as emotions and truth move through your body.
This session is different from counseling because it's outside the medical paradigm.
FREEBIRTH: You birth as the fully capable and autonomous person that you are. This is also called unassisted childbirth, undisturbed birth, or family birth.
In this session we talk 1:1 as you explore the basics of Freebirth:
-why any pregnant woman may do this
-how women are designed to birth wildly and undisturbed
-what it means to be fully responsible for your body and baby.
Freebirth is contrary to generations of programming otherwise. That's why it's radical.
We've been programmed that it's normal for women to sacrifice their bodies and children to the System. Women accept their assigned roles for basic survival.
It's time to renormalize Birth and Mothering to the Hearts and Hands of Women.
Your hormonal blueprint, cellular wisdom, and ancient mother-wit are all the guides you need.
Only you can disqualify yourself from homebirth.
Freebirth is the language of ecstatic, wild, messy, Woman Owned birth.
This is an info. session. You decide the next step. Peace, Martha
When you sign for homebirth preparation or as a birth-keeper or doula client, this is covered during our connection meetings.
We meet 1:1 as you connect with your body, mind, and spirit.
What do you really want?
Discover what you want in order to see what you need.
BIRTH, the emergence of your baby from your body.
Birth may be from you. OR, you can deliver your child to others. Ecstatic birth, is it for you?
Your dream birth is unique to you. This dream is sometimes fuzzy.
Open up your heart, body, and mind. Release your authentic self! Clarify.
Imagine the power, joy, and love created by creating your dream birth.
Next step: keep the power moving as you move to own your birth and mothering.
When you sign as a birth-keeper or doula client, we cover all this.
While childbirth education classes are helpful, what goes down at your hospital delivery, is most of the time, determined by medical protocol specific to a given hospital or medical manager.
I offer this session to guide you realistically on how pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum happen in the System around here.
This session covers the 3 general medical-obstetric models.
1-Midwife (CPM or RNM) care outside of the hospital at home or birth center.
2-Midwife (RNM) care in-hospital.
3-Medical doctor for in-hospital delivery.
I share with you specifics of :
-How the above options relate to your personal preferences
-Which options, you're realistically "allowed" to choose from.
-Things you may choose to clarify with your medical managers.
-What goes down per protocol at a given hospital when you're admitted for delivery.
I've attended over 100 births, and served about 180 clients in Southeast Wisc. I've accumulated information from this. I keep updated on changing policies.
I share my experience as it applies to you.
