COVID-19 Support for Pregnancy
"Birth doesn't ask you to be fearless. It asks you to be brave."
-- Britta Bushnell
FREE ONLINE PRENATAL CONSULTATIONS
Birthing in the time of COVID-19 has introduced a new set of realities to consider into your birth plan. Do you have questions about what to expect and how to prepare given these evolving realities? You are not alone. Reach out to discuss resources, concerns, tools and strategies to navigate both prenatally and in postpartum.
A MOMENT TO BREATH
15mins to Pause, Daily
We can all embrace a moment to pause in these increasingly intense times. Offer yourself a moment to recalibrate your nervous system and slow down. Come join me to pause, to notice, to feel. EVERYDAY at 1:00pm (EST) we connect to move gently through a guided breath practice. All are welcome, including those new to meditation.
If you find yourself overwhelmed by waves of grief or loss, directly or indirectly, you are not alone. As part of the diverse team of compassionate bereavement professionals through the Institute of Birth, Breath & Death, we are here for you-- ready to listen compassionately, hold space and support you to discover the tools that are most appropriate for you to navigate this time. Learn more by reviewing our Scope of Practice or reaching out to schedule a session.

"We are humans relearning to wash our hands. Washing our hands is an act of love. Washing our hands is an act of care. Washing our hands is an act that puts the hypervigilant body at ease. Washing our hands helps us return to ourselves by washing away what does not serve."
