My

Pregnancy Story

 

When my husband, Dan and I got married we wanted to start a family right away. After 6 months of trying we hadn’t seen any success. I know that many try for much longer without success and I wanted to reach out to my Dr. to see if there was anything that we needed to do to help us on our journey. A bit of blood testing was done on my end and everything showed I was healthy.

 

While I was at a friend’s house sharing my story, she suggested that I try Reiki. She had learned how to practice and briefly explained that it is the God energy transmuted through the Reiki Healer and out their hands as they hold space for the recipients energy to shift out the old and into a higher vibration. I said I was willing to try anything and was excited to have her work on me.

I laid with my head in her lap, with her hands on my head. I suddenly felt warmth and calm coming from her hands. I began to see beautiful swirling colors in my minds-eye, I was giggling, and surprised with how much I was experiencing. While she worked, she saw 2 boys playing and one had curly hair. She said it was so vivid and beautiful. After the session I felt calm and refreshed and very intrigued with the entire experience.

The next month, I was pregnant with my now 7-year-old. At the time I had no idea how the reiki session helped, and I didn’t care. Now looking back, I realize that I had shifted out of old energy patterns that were holding me back from obtaining my soul purpose.  

 

While pregnant I decided that needed to learn how to also practice Reiki, I searched for weeks trying to find a place where I could learn and finally finding a local yoga studio that offered the class. My first class was powerful, I remember feeling like I needed to know all about energy and holistic healing. It was as if these flood gates were opened and God was continuing to show me life’s amazing beauty. While pregnant I received 2 of the 3 classes and received my Master Teacher lever just after Xavier was born.

I used Reiki while pregnant to help the anxiety and stress that came with being considered high risk, I used it to alleviate the constant pain in my body, and I used it to help others shift. I also used it to connect to my unborn child and surround him with love and peace. It was such beautiful tool that God gifted me, and I will be forever grateful. Without Reiki before, during and after my pregnancy I do not think that I would be the person I have evolved to now.

First Things First: What to Avoid.

Avoid Endocrine Disruptors

Endocrine disruptors are chemicals found in everyday household products including skincare products that can disrupt our bodies. In large enough doses, these chemicals can increase the production of certain hormones while decreasing the production of others.

 

A few of these disruptive chemicals found in skin-care products are parabens, which are used to preserve the products; phthalates which are the fragrances used; BPA, which is often found in the plastic packaging; and triclosan, which is antibacterial. Parabens have been found to cause low birth weight in babies, as well as shorten women’s menstrual cycles outside of pregnancy.

 

There is also some research linking phthalates to thyroid dysfunction and endometriosis. Not only should all pregnant and non-pregnant women avoid these chemicals, so should men, as there may also be a link between phthalates and lowered sperm count.

Testimonials

Marble Surface

A lovely friend piqued my interest in herbal infusions and the benefits sounded fascinating. I happened to be newly pregnant with my 5th child. I noticed that even when feeling queasy and nauseous, a glass of infusion always sounded appealing to me. I’m a compliant water drinker and even water didn’t seem as appealing to me in previous pregnancies! I noticed that I had more energy than ever before as well. I was caring for 2 toddlers and an infant and any benefit to my energy level was appreciated!


I was aware that the nutrients from the herbal infusions were benefiting me and my baby and I committed to drinking them daily. My contractions during labor were more regular and effective than my previous pregnancies as well. A few hours after my daughter was born, I noticed I was that water wasn’t quenching thirst, after thinking about it for a moment, I noticed I was craving my infusion!!! I am convinced that infusions helped my body during pregnancy and postpartum. I only wish I would’ve learned about them sooner!!

Energy Work for Pregnancy & Postpartum

Intuitive Reiki Healing

Reiki during Pregnancy and Postpartum is impactful as pregnancy and motherhood are times of rapid change.

 

Reiki is a gentle way to help make all of the changes much more manageable, while keeping you connected to your baby.

 

Reiki is a centuries-old healing art from Japan that uses light touch on, or just above the body, to help facilitate deep relaxation, promote balance, healing and an optimal state of well-being.

Prenatal Reiki

Reiki supports women through the on-going physical, emotional and spiritual changes of pregnancy; this process helps to prepare them for childbirth.  Many moms-to-be report feeling more centered, rested and grounded after a treatment. 

 

This gentle, healing energy can therefore be of great benefit to both the mother and her developing baby.  Reiki can safely be used at any stage of pregnancy and in conjunction with conventional medicine and complementary therapies including prenatal massage, prenatal yoga and chiropractic care.

Reiki during early pregnancy relieves many common discomforts such as exhaustion and nausea. Safe and gentle, Reiki will support the mother's body as she grows and changes, and can give relief to lower back pain, tension in the neck and shoulders and insomnia. 

 

The common ‘fog’ of pregnancy is often lifted after a Reiki treatment.  Relieved of some of the physical and emotional discomforts of pregnancy, the expectant mother will sleep more soundly and will feel more relaxed and connected with her baby.

The Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut conducted tests in a clinical setting during pregnancy involving the use of just the simplest form of Reiki.  These showed:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety during pregnancy by 94%

  • Reduced pain by 78%

  • Nausea and morning sickness reduced by 80%

  • Quality of sleep was improved by 86%

Postpartum Reiki

For new mothers, a Reiki treatment offers a safe and supportive space for them to re-orientate to themselves and their bodies after the birth of their baby.  It is said that when a woman gives birth, she stands between two worlds, one foot on Earth to keep her grounded and one foot on the Otherside to retrieve her baby. Thus, the term bringing the baby Earthside.

 

The comforting, gentle energy of Reiki helps stimulate and support the body’s own natural healing processes, bringing it back into balance and alignment. As the nature of Reiki is deeply relaxing and calming, it can help to reduce stress and promote sleep.

Reiki can also be used to ease postpartum depression and anxiety.  It also promotes physical and emotional healing from a lengthy or traumatic birth. Reiki is also helpful for mothers that have been working through breastfeeding difficulties. It helps lessen the stress in both mother and child which fosters beneficial effects like better milk production and confidence in your ability to nurture your baby and yourself. 

 

Reiki can be so relaxing that new moms often drift off to sleep during the session.

Baby is welcome to come along for the session too!

Allowing yourself to release heavy energy (thoughts, patterns, trauma) from your body, makes room for growth and expansion of your Self. Being a mother means caring for and dedication to a tiny human(s). By clearing your emotional and physical burdens you are making space to be a solid foundation for your children and guiding them with wisdom and empathy.

 

You will be able to parent as your higher self and not repeat learned patterns that do not serve you or your children.

Crystalline Consciousness Technique

By stating specific intentions for your pregnancy journey; CCT can assist you in refiling your energy to allow you to function and preform as your best self. These sessions can be utilized before, during, or after pregnancy. There is no wrong time to align your emotions and thoughts.

 

When working with CCT the practitioner holds a container of space for you to work with the crystalline energy system. Your energy field moves and untangles from heaviness, allowing you to easily release untruths and falsehoods as the system holds a high vibration for protection. 

CCT offers a map to navigate on your journey. The crystalline energy spirals through sacred geometry with your set intentions for the session to transformation and growth. CCT accesses the highest levels of healing ensuring that your progress is continuing to move forward and not backtracking afterward. You can move through deep emotional blocks, which then allows you to live in new levels of understanding, consciousness, and spiritual wisdom. 

It truly accelerates your development on all aspects, allowing you to reach your highest potential. Incorporating as many as you like of the below listed intentions and also bringing your own unique goals creates a session that best personifies you.

These intentions will be set during the appointment and do not need to be known when booking the session. The intention may even change during the appointment as you access your higher knowing.

Testimonials

Marble Surface

I met Becky right before I became pregnant with my 5th child. I had never had a reiki session before, but I knew it was time to try it. I felt incredibly comfortable with her genuine personality and was ready to release some major unnecessary baggage. I was unaware of grounding my energy. I lacked confidence and was often dependent on others to help provide me clarity. My brain ran a track of my incompetence whenever I stopped being busy, so I avoided that often. 

 

After my first session, in the days following, I noticed peace and love flowing through my body. I noticed the track that played in my mind was quieted! It actually never came back in that same way after my first session. I have always been prone to anxiety, so this was extremely helpful to me during my first trimester. My next session released more than I ever could have hoped. I noticed that I had a clarity of mind that I had never had before in my life!

 

This related to big decisions as well as things as small as remembering why I walked into a room to do something. I was able to be present like I never had before. It was amazing!! My sessions in my 3rd trimester continued to release more emotional pain as well as physical pain. The reiki energy helped heal my past and helped me to remember my true self!! I am able to see things differently. I’m more confident than ever in my ability to make decisions based on the highest good of anyone I interact with and forgive myself when I don’t live up to my best. 

 

My daughter is about to be 3 in a couple weeks and all of the transformations I experienced throughout my prenatal and postnatal reiki sessions have stayed with me. The peace, love, joy, clarity, and steadfast connectedness with the universe is still present. Experiencing pregnancy with regular reiki sessions is something that I will recommend for the rest of my life! I can only imagine the benefits by daughter received at the same time. I have so much sincere gratitude to Becky for honoring her calling to provide reiki services!!!

Empowering Mama: A Collective Blog

Growing into a mother can be overwhelming. Processing all of the emotions and expectations associated with becoming a mother to another human being can be...challenging. Your sense of responsibility, your limitless love for your little one(s), and the daily uncertainty of each day can send you into an endless quest for solutions to soothe your mind.

Long before Google and Facebook, before the hundreds of contradictory sleep and parenting books, and before everyone had an opinion on whether or not you should XYZ, there was a time when women raised their babies using only their intuition and a village of support from seasoned mothers. Connection and community were and still are imperative. New mothers need a connection with themselves to trust their instincts, as well as solid relationships with others who are walking similar paths.

This collective blog provides a community of Toledo area businesses that you can utilize to empower your journey as a mother. Though this voyage will not be easy or perfect, these local owners are here to support and guide you with care. They want to see you thrive and can help create a safe place to land through education, resources, connection with other like-minded mamas, and support of your mind, body, and spirit.

Cheers to Wellness!
