Empowered Birth Method™
Giving birth and becoming a mama provide amazing opportunities for personal empowerment and transformation. This is a time we are meant to be most powerful yet many women give their power away. You don’t need to be one of them!
That’s why I created an in-depth Empowered Birth Method™, which educates and empowers women and couples to embrace a positive, natural childbirth experience. As your pregnancy coach, I won’t tell you what you should or shouldn’t do; rather, my role is to work with you to determine the birth process that will work best for you and then provide relevant information and motivating encouragement to help you reach your goals.
Next group begins in September 2012. For details and registration go here.
What is the Empowered Birth Method™?
The Empowered Birth Method™ is a process that enables a woman to transform her birth experience and ultimately her life, by consciously choosing and creating based on her values & priorities, exploring her options, preparing her mind and body and stepping into her true power as a woman.
I work one-on-one and in groups with participants in my 9-week Empowered Birth program, together we explore a different pregnancy and birth topic each week, including:
- Examining your own ideals and determine your priorities for your birth experience
- Learning various childbirth options
- Creating a unique birth plan that feels comfortable to you
- Overcoming your fears about giving birth
- Discovering ways to nourish your body and soul throughout your pregnancy
- Gaining useful tools and resources to help you achieve a positive birth experience
- And much more
So what’s my story?
I found out I was pregnant and I cried both tears of joy and tears of uncertainty. I was extremely happy yet scared and unsure that I would be able to handle the pain of childbirth. I feared I wasn’t strong enough, I was scared because there were so many unknowns and I wanted to feel in control. I knew that I had to educate myself, explore all my options and in the end I consciously chose what I thought would be best for me and my baby.
The process of preparation was empowering in and of itself. I felt like I was in control, calling the shots. Through a process of elimination and to my surprise I chose a natural homebirth with midwives. I felt confident because I had good strong support, I prepared my mind, body and soul the best I could, took classes, read books, did workshops, and ultimately listened to my intuition and made choices accordingly.
My birth experience shook me to my core and was the most challenging time of my life. My baby would not budge and I was stuck unable to dilate for several hours. I came face to face with my greatest fear of losing control. I faced my insecurity of not being capable or strong enough. I momentarily lost control. I had big time doubts and wanted to quit. When the midwife got in my face and said ,” if the baby doesn’t come down you are going to have to go to the hospital. You can do this Justine!”, the craziest thing happened. I did the only thing left to do, I surrendered. I let go of the illusion of control. Once I did, my daughter dropped, I dilated and she was born. Giving birth to my daughter I was re-born.
So many women start out where I was fearing birth and not knowing how to prepare for a positive experience. My own journey with childbirth along with my professional work as The Pregnancy Coach, a childbirth educator and birth doula all led me to create this Birth Empowerment Coaching Program.
I know what’s possible for us as women and our babies when it comes to giving birth. I know that this experience truly matters and can change a woman on a cellular level and completely to the core. It can shape how a woman views herself for the rest of her life, whether it be positive or negative. I also know that birth is a beautiful time for a new family and it should be a sacred and positive experience.
My Birth Empowerment Coaching Program provides a platform and a process for a woman to discover her own extraordinary strength. It is an exploration of personal wants, needs, and challenges false beliefs one holds about herself, her abilities and what’s possible. The coaching relationship empowers participants to actively engage in the process and take personal responsibility for her choices. As the birthing woman, deep down only you know what is best for you and your baby. You have all the answers you need for your life and your birth within you. This process will help bring your inner knowing out.
The program is a hybrid approach including childbirth education and empowerment coaching and consists of 8 modules each designed to empower you in a different aspect of birth preparation.
My Birth Empowerment Coaching Program is probably the best way a woman can prepare herself for birth. It is a small investment with a big payoff. For $600 you can be confident and completely prepared to give birth in an empowering way. Special offer for Re-launch program only $450 September series only!! Register here.
