New parents grow here!
New parents need just as much attention as a newborn baby, because they too, have just been born!
Parenthood has two faces.
There's the face you visualize before birth— of hugs, kisses, delight and fulfillment.
And then there's the other face – of exhaustion, overwhelm, stress, and guilt, wondering if these feelings will ever go away and longing for things to just go back to normal.
You start doubting, what are you doing wrong? This is not how it's supposed to be - everyone else seems to be handling parenthood with grace. And so guilt, shame, and a sense of failure begin to take over, along with grief over your lost, previous life.
My specialized perinatal coaching, will give you the tools to regain control and self-confidence, set healthy boundaries and thrive in your new role of mother or father.
I believe the transition to parenthood is a unique opportunity for personal growth.
How is your"current way of being" disrupted by this new role?
And what "deeper way of being" can you pursue to become both the parent you envision
and your full self as a human being? This will be the basis for our coaching work together.
I've been there
As a first-time mom, I knew my life was going to change but I couldn't imagine how and to what extent. I don't think any new parent can ever fully prepare for the shift—it’s new and massive.
What’s more, the transition to parenthood is not widely discussed, nor is it generally supported by the structures and norms of our society. I know how lonely, overwhelming, and hopeless it may feel right now. I know how much courage it takes to speak up and seek help. But I also know that with support you will start to feel like yourself again.
I offer compassionate, insightful, and transformative coaching. My method is integral, which is a holistic approach focusing on the mind, heart, and body. I’m ready to meet you where you are in your journey and together, we will remove the roadblocks that are holding you back from being your confident, joyful self.
