BIRTH STORY HEALING
Often telling your birth story is deeply healing, particularly if your birth didn’t go to plan or you have felt unsupported during or since birth. The experience is told over a cuppa tea or a healthy cool drink and is an opportunity to integrate the experience on a mind level before integrating the experience on the body level to release birth trauma.
This birth story healing experience can lead to more in-depth and longer support counselling sessions which help bring you to a place where you are open to birthing without fear in the future.
Some clients specifically buy a package of four massages and counselling sessions (30 or 60 mins) and we proactively work on mind-body integration of trauma and fears in preparation for a subsequent birth.
The process culminates in a healing ceremony called Closing of the Bones, which can be done at any time – even years – after the birth. The ceremony metaphysically, emotionally, spiritually and physically represents a closing of the chapter in life whereby you have honoured and healed the “Re-birthing Yourself”. It’s a process of conscious connection to mind-body and your story over time.

This experience can include the audio recording of the re-telling of your memories. This is a really beautiful way to capture your story in a comprehensive honest way with someone you trust. A transcript can be given after the session at a cost quoted according to length. The transcript serves as a “place to start” when it comes to writing your child’s birth story.
