“We can have an increased or decreased ability to GIVE AND RECEIVE LOVE due to the experiences in our formative period…largely dependant on the state of our mother’s wellbeing, her feelings about the pregnancy and motherhood and the flow of love between you.” …..So what can we do if we weren’t lucky enough to arrive in a bubble of bliss? Nicole Moore from Birth into Being Australia enlightens us on how to work with our limbic imprint to allow more comfort and ease with love, peace, connection with ourselves, others and our world in Move Beyond Your Birth Blueprint.
“The transition to motherhood can be challenging at the best of times, requiring enormous personal adjustment and involving a steep learning curve. Unexpected adverse events – complications during pregnancy, difficult labour, preterm birth, postnatal depression – certainly increase the challenge for many women. Adversity requires resilience.” Dr Koa Whittingham – Parenting from the Heart gives practical strategies and the real truth on building your own resilience during the challenging times so you can bring the JOY back to motherhood!
“Deep down, I didn’t feel that the baby needed to turn for me to have a natural birth. My husband was worried when the baby turned back to breech, but Dr. Aybar told us that “we need to trust our baby. If she returned to breech position, it is because that is what she wants and that there is a reason for it. When the time comes, mum and baby know the way. It’s natural, it’s human nature… and he was right….” Be inspired by Tessia’s story, Natural Breech Against All Odds.
And much more!!!!
