“Pregnancy is THE time of Change – learning to embrace the changes within our body and our mind – preparing ourselves holistically as women to be empowered in our motherhood, and as men in coming into their power as fathers- rather than just preparing physically.” ~ Hania Trzaskowski
Pregnancy is one of the most amazing experiences of a lifetime. It can be full of wonder and excitement; a progression from one life to step into another. It can also be a time of worry, anxiety and great stress, both on the body and the mind. Even if you are full of hope and joy, or you already have a child, you may well still be unprepared for the changes ahead. These include new changes to your body, changing relationships, values, identity, financial status, responsibilities and time management- the list is endless!
When pregnant, your body is redesigning itself to create a whole new being! This is huge – and can send your mind & body into either a blissful or woeful spin! Traditionally in the modern world we prepare with clothes and new furniture. Focus is given to the baby’s health and the mechanics of pregnancy & birth, failing to acknowledge the mental, spiritual and emotional needs of the parents to be – who are now becoming a mother and father.
To have a healthy child, you need healthy confident prepared parents. Even those who already have children can be ill prepared for the task of another – and omitting this preparation can only add to the shock and depression that many sleep deprived parents experience.
“If there is anything that we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.” ~ Carl Jung
Though we know WHAT is coming, most of us aren’t allowed the space to learn how we FEEL about these changes. By doing holistic celebrations of the coming baby (belly blessings), receiving care & nurturing ourselves, and talking the time to prepare ourselves (mind,body and spirit) for the coming changes – we can hope to become confident happy fully-supported parents, rather than depressed confused zombies that feel alone.
And we all come to these changes in many ways – which is why I offer a variety of therapies for pregnant women & men here at Chirinka:
