Balance & Restore
Jan provides a listening ear and a safe space for you to reflect and explore your individual birth experience(s) in order for you to gain personal clarity, calmness and balance in an unhurried non-judgemental, healing way. It can be particularly helpful to reflect on your journey to motherhood if your birth did not go as you had expected.
The birth of a baby can be an amazing experience, but for many women it is experienced as negative, frightening or even traumatic, resulting in feelings of helplessness, disappointment and failure. Some express a lack of choice, control and not enough accurate unbiased information.
A 2 hour consultation has been found to be of most benefit to our mummies. We use the first hour for reflection and the second hour to discuss strategies for healing.
Seeking help is the first step towards being kind to yourself and starting the healing journey to regain balance and restoration of your emotional and psychological health. Jan can help you along this journey. We can't change what happened but I can help you change your understanding of your birth and your insights about the issues surrounding it and the intensity you feel and your relationship with it.
The Fearless Mummy Reloaded
Perfect if this isn't your first baby but you would like some personal guidance through the first few weeks of life with your new baby. You have done it all before but it is a challenging time and now not only do you have a newborn baby to care for, you also have the rest of your family demanding your attention at the same time. The Mothers Mentor will provide one to one practical, emotional and holistic support to guide you through this challenging time.
The Fearless Mummy Reloaded Programme includes: A 3 hour virtual visit, via Skype or your choice of video link provider.
Prenatal Review to get to know each other and create a flexible postpartum action plan specifically to meet your individual needs and circumstances.
The remaining 2 "visits" are totally flexible and can be used anyway you wish and can cover any of the topics covered in The New Mummy Programme. This gives you maximum opportunity to focus on the aspects of the early weeks that are especially concerning or problematic for you.
