I trained and worked as a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner and Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher. I was also a Prenatal Yoga teacher and birthing Doula, having received training at the prestigious Seattle Midwifery School. In other words… I had some holistic health wisdom under my belt.
I began looking for resources that would fully engage my whole changing being; engage in my most powerful rites-of-passage – the rite of mamabirthing. I found some resources: an article here, a yoga class there, a home-birthing midwife, a great book. Piecemeal tidbits of blessed, insightful wisdom.
I began to notice this enormous gap that isn’t filled by a yoga teacher or a midwife or a husband or a friend or a book.
“There is a gap to bridge between what professionals think mothers do, think, and want, and what mothers, in reality, do, think, and want.”Journal of Midwifery, Womens Health. 2006
Pregnant, I had a busy work life and not much time to go here or there for classes. I lived in a rural area with excellent midwives and birth doulas. Yet, I couldn’t find a course for evolving motherhood online or locally.
Even though I had a hard drive of knowledge in my brain… I didn’t have a guide to hold me and encourage me to the next level of my depth potential. I didn’t have a guide to focus or inform my choices around foods, meditation, practices, and daily routines in a way that optimized this sacred opportunity of bringing forth new life.
And yet internally, I sensed that the importance of this process rests in the daily experiences of my habits. I sensed that my daily habits with plants, foods, spices, teas, routines, baths, self-massage, conversations and meditations all had the potential to ensure that my inner choice maker was on target.
I equally sensed that those who didn’t have the yoga / ayurveda / doula background I had would have a HUGE INFORMATION GAP. I sensed that those of us who are looking for cutting-edge self-evolution and wellness care through the entire cycle of conception through postpartum need our own course. I sensed that if we had a course that pulled the whole shebang together and moved us into a deeper knowing, with detailed specifics, that the next generation of mamas, babes and families would be grounded in a depth of inner wisdom.
I sensed that if we didn’t take this opportunity… the consequences are very real… and quite negative.
And that is how Mamabirthing was born. A course designed around you and your pre- and post-birthing needs. A course of completeness and wellbeing… especially for you.
Mamabirthing is a holistic course designed to deepen your intuition and develop systems and skills for upleveling the wellness and the thrive of your changing family. Mamabirthing engages your soul, your body and your mind on an educational journey into your potential as a mother. This is for new mothers, experienced mothers, and prenatal/postpartum professionals alike.
Mamabirthing is a guide to evolve your wellness… whether you are just pregnant, preparing for birth, or postpartum. This course is centered in the rich tradition of Ayurvedic medicine, yet applied in a cutting-edge, practical way. (Ayurveda has the best historical track record for honoring mothers as the midline of the species and honoring the prenatal through postpartum process as essential to a women’s long term health.)
“I have listened to your series on evolutionary childbearing and really enjoyed them. Full of information and well articulated. I’d love to sit down and talk with you some day. I am in Bellingham WA and am beginning to offer post partum care and an Ayurvedic Practitioner and Massage Practitioner as well as a certified hypnotherapist. All come into play. Thanks for all you do.
Thank you Cate, not only for your boundless knowledge, but for your generosity in sharing it, and your wisdom in understanding exactly how to help moms and moms-to-be feel energized and balanced during this wonderful, ever-changing time of life!”
