Birth Healing Services
Birth can be a challenging experience and the transition into your new reality afterwards can be even more challenging still!
Birth Trauma Healing
I walk alongside people on their journey through healing their Birth Trauma. I do so with integrity, honour, compassion and grace. I hold an open heart, a listening ear and a strong, grounded sense of self.
I am not here with all the answers. I am not here to fix anything. But I am able to sit and listen. To hold space for the story to be shared. For grief to flow unhindered; for anger to be witnessed; for pain and confusion to be spoken and heard. I am here to nurture and to help the healing blossom and grow.
Processing your birth story is also an important step in moving towards a positive next birth.
This session is often held in conjunction with the Closing The Bones ritual.

"Josie did a birth trauma healing session with me. Several weeks after the session, I still feel very differently about the little “niggly” bits that had been lingering around my birth experience. I feel much more whole about the entire thing. Josie held beautiful space - very supportive & non-judgmental. This work is very needed and I’m so pleased Josie is doing it"
Support after Baby Loss
The emotion after baby loss is deep and raw. I am able to support you through this with keen understanding, an open heart and sensitive comfort.
I can also support you in creating ceremony and honouring around this journey.
This support can be offered in person or via Zoom
Support for Termination of Pregnancy
Terminating a pregnancy is a difficult decision and can be a lonely path to walk. I am able to offer a listening ear, sensitive guidance and moral support along this journey.
Although this may not be the optimum time for you to become a parent, it may be that you still wish to name and honour your baby and I am able to support in creating an honouring ceremony should you wish.
This mahi is offered no matter how long ago your termination was and can be in-person or via Zoom..
