Giving birth doesn’t always go as we planned. Things happen quickly, and before you know it, your well-planned water birth is out the window. The next few months are a blur and when you re-tell your birth story there’s this pain you can’t quiet explain, this undercurrent of disappointment. We have no words for this pain because it “shouldn’t be there”, right? No one talks about what happens when things don’t go as planned and how you may or may not feel. Here’s the thing, you’re not alone. Many of us are grieving the loss of the birth we longed for, the birth we planned, the birth we dreamed of. You see no one tells you is this is not an ordinary “story”, your child’s birth becomes a defining moment in womanhood, in motherhood and how we view ourselves moving forward in the world. We never knew this moment was so defining, after all, we have a beautiful baby, right? Here’s the other part we don’t tell anyone we are grieving the birth we longed for, and if we do, they just don’t get it. It’s hard to explain we feel less than for accepting a medical intervention we thought we disagreed with.
Are you ready to release the disappointment from your birth story, forgive, meet other women who have been there and re-define yourself? Are you ready reclaim your power and shine a light on the truths of motherhood with a tribe of woman who have been there?
If you answered yes to any of these questions. This workshop is for you.
Ilia Stranko created this healing workshop after working with so many mothers - herself included - who all shared a deep wound over their birth story. She combines her expertise as a decade-long social worker; 3.5 years-long career as a licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, and life coach; plus her personal experiences as a mama of twins, to welcome all mothers to this soul-affirming exploration.
Join us as we create a sacred place of healing through truth telling, journaling, and meditation. During this workshop you will release the grief associated with your birth story while reclaiming your power.
