Are you pregnant? Congratulations!!!! I like to support you and your partner at best to prepare for motherhood/parenthood. Welcome to give me a call to celebrate your motherhood together!
Being pregnant, away from friends and family, might be a bit overwhelming. Pregnancy is 9 months of intense changes and personal transformation. You will give birth to a baby and to yourself with a new identity as MOTHER.
During the Intake Session (in your home or a place to decide together), I answer all your questions related to pregnancy and birth in Bangkok. Prior to this session, I email you a Prenatal Questionnaire helping you to formulate your thoughts.
I AM HERE TO SUPPORT YOU DURING YOUR PREGNANCY AND BEYOND
My holistic approach allows you to design your unique pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience from a wellness perspective.
Worrying about what to eat and your lifestyle? Check in for an ayurvedic food and lifestyle consult. We look at which foods are best for your specific body-mind type and how you can develop a daily routine that supports best your lifestyle, but also specific to pregnancy.
Consider yoga to support your changing body. By the end of the first trimester, around 14 weeks, you might join a prenatal floor yoga class and/or prenatal water yoga class. It is an ideal practice to soothe your transforming body and mind and to be in relax mode.
Prepare for childbirth. In the interactive child birth education classes you and your partner get all the info about your changing body and mind in pregnancy, the birth plan, your trip to labour land, your options for giving birth, the postpartum plan and the support for you and your baby during the first 42 days after birth with traditional postpartum care.
Or you might be interested in a hypnobirthing class for you and your partner. You both explore your fears and anxieties and learn tools to transform the imprints in your subconscious mind into a positive or neutral mindset. The benefits of this class go far beyond the birth of your child. While your baby grows up, you will enjoy a more conscious approach to parenthood thanks to the techniques you learned in hypnobirthing.
How about a relaxing massage or bodywork in your home? There is nothing better than a prenatal oil massage to relax and let go of the tension.
If you have nervous and muscular tensions or some parts in your body are screaming for help, then a craniosacral therapy session will help you to reset your nervous system, getting out of the stress mode into the relax mode.
Do you dream sometimes you can immortalize your pregnant body? How about creating your unique art piece with a pregnant breast & belly cast, together with your partner, at the end of pregnancy. What an incredible intimate gift to yourself! see the picture above.
How to do? Start by rubbing Vaseline all over on breasts and belly. Then your partner will roll out the plaster bandage strips piece by piece, in few layers. When the strips start drying, you can take the cast off the body and let it dry totally. Next day you can even out the bumps with sandpaper, then paint or decorate with pearls, flowers… the way you like and make it uniquely yours. The cast can be the first cradle of your baby.
I have created a set for you of plaster bandage rolls, vaseline, gloves and sandpaper and can be delivered to you. In de handout is a tutorial.
Be part of a new moms village. Connecting with other moms, bond in sisterhood... so important to avoid feelings of loneliness. You can meet other parents in the chid birth classes or connect in the support Whatsapp group of pregnant moms and newborn babies.
And you are welcome to join a MOTHER'S CIRCLE for pregnant and postpartum moms. see the calendar page for upcoming circles. Here I introduce you to postpartum bengkung belly binding, a fun way to connect with each other. http://www.kristldhaene.com/events/
