“The journey of participating in Gena’s Birth Spirituality and Healing Coach Series has been a personal and professional healing experience for me. It has both helped me to remember the gifts given to me from my ancestors and how to integrate them and bring them forth into this world so hungry for healing.”

Community Ceremony Development, Consultation, and Facilitation for Perinatal Professionals

Just like the people served parents before us, we need the support of our community, ancestors, the Earth and elements, loving wisdom beings and energies, (whatever form they make take for us) to transform our fears. We need to feel supported, worthy and safe in order to show up and open to birth miracle moments of inherent beauty, love and wonder…

I have been facilitating and developing community ceremonies for many years. I am happy and honored to assist you in developing yours either through consultation or both consultation and facilitation.

Healing Your Own Birth Individual EMDR Sessions

Our perinatal passages are our original, primal imprints on our life, reproductive and perinatal work patterns. When we integrate and or heal our own births we experience an increase in our openness to life and relationships. This applies to any birth experience that needs healing. The birth that may need to be healed could be:

  • Your own birth story
  • Your child’s birth story
  • A birth story that you participated in
  • The birth story of your mother or another ancestor
  • All of the above
