During her first pregnancy Jennie read the book The secret life of the unborn child which was a game changer for her as she changed the way she was looking after herself. Jennie had two different pregnancies and births
2.17 Her first birth was difficult and she used energy healing to release trauma, cranial osteopathy for her son and CBT for her PTSD. She also got an official apology from the hospital for the mismanagement of her birth.
Due to this the second time she knew her choices and had an amazing experience.
4.51 Her birth changed the trajectory of her life, She left her consultancy work and set up her own business 8 years ago now. During 8 years she noticed that underlying the majority of presenting conditions for the children she worked with were issues related to birth trauma or difficult pregnancies. Now she works with mums and babies together to release and heal these traumas using energy healing.
11.26 To prepare for birth Jennie suggests giving yourself space to connect with yourself regularly and then with your baby. Talk to them and be aware they have consciousness and are not just a bundle of cells. Imagine their personality and connect to the actual person inside you.

Connect with people who will be your cheerleaders.
How being informed, supported and empowered made all the difference in her second pregnancy despite significant pressure to follow a different path ( induction and testing) than she wanted and felt was right for her. Despite being gaslighted throughout pregnancy and being told she couldn't do it she gave birth at home in calm circumstances.

30.00 Jennie's vision for the future is that we have a greater understanding of all aspects of pregnancy and motherhood, that we are not just physical beings and unborn babies have emotions too. That we can let go of what we held onto growing up so our children don't have to carry the same baggage.
33.00 Jennie shares how her own birth affected her with the birth of her own child and how the pattern of separation anxiety was triggered and so she was able to go back and heal it. She sees this passing down of patterns across the generations with the majority of the women she works with.
