"Nothing in life will ever make you as happy, as sad, as exhausted, or as incredibly proud as motherhood"
"It takes a village." We've all heard that expression...mostly related to raising children. However, the same can be said for raising new moms. It's glorious and amazing! It's also one of the hardest things we'll ever do and a complete shock to our lives as we know them. How can women/families set themselves up for success? What questions do we ask? How can you best prepare? How can we be "good moms" yet also show our stress, exhaustion and challenges without seeming, or feeling inadequate? It takes a village! I've partnered with some amazing local professionals to help you create the best case scenario for you and your growing family. Let us nurture you through all the stages of this new life! *this page is a work in progress...check back for more additions to our gang*
Rebecca MacLean is a Life Coach specializing in Emotional Processing. As a Master Certified Trainer, she is uniquely qualified to help people find and resolve emotional undercurrents generating feelings of unlimited connection and joy. "What makes a good mom? Whether or not you’re aware of them, you have deep beliefs that fuel your answer to that question. You have high expectations for yourself as a mother. You’ll make dozens of decisions everyday from before pregnancy all through your child’s life based on one thing, you love your child and want what is best for them. The truth is that with very few exceptions, there is no wrong way to be a mom. But most mothers feel a pressure to get it right. In a few hours, we can discover your expectations of motherhood, connect with your innate resources, and give you enhanced confidence every step of the way from pregnancy, delivery, and every day beyond. RIM Sessions will help you connect with your body for smooth labor, delivery and recovery, bond you with your child for enhanced connection, guide you to your mothering confidence, and help move into this amazing part of your life with joy and poise." - Rebecca MacLean www.macleanlifecoaching.com
