Certified Birthing From Within Mentor and Doula.
Birth Story Listener.
Birth Story Processing
Whether you are a parent or a birth attendant, going through a birth also creates the potential for navigating surprising and unexpected twists and turns as pregnancy, labor, and birth unfold. These events have the potential to leave a lasting impact, even years later. It is not always easy to know where it is safe to share your story when you may be feeling grief, sadness, anger, betrayal, and/or guilt mixed in with even otherwise happy outcomes.
Stephanie is a trained Birth Story Listener who works with anyone who is or has been pregnant, given birth, or attended a birth as a father, partner, doula, or other birth attendant. She works compassionately to help reframe painful stories and seek out small seeds of positive change for you to begin finding healing after an emotionally painful, traumatic, or disappointing birth or postpartum experience.
Stephanie schedules private birth story listening appointments on an individual basis. They last approximately one hour. Two sessions are recommended for each story reframing process.
Birth Story Processing sessions are offered at $40 per each hour-long session. Please let me know if price is a barrier for you, and we can discuss other options.
Birth Story Circles: Birth story work can also be held in a group setting of up to 4 women or men. Contact Stephanie if you are interested in holding a Birth Story Circle in your community.
