She came only five weeks before birthing the baby. It was her second pregnancy and despite of pretty comfortable life situation, she was emotional and overwhelmed. I listened to the story of almost every expectant mother – a story full of joy, hope, fear, despair, anxiety, pitfalls, and triumphs. No much time left for me as a counsellor to help this beautiful woman to move beyond the self-doubt and the blame she has had while questioning the roller-coaster of emotions felt during the last stage of pregnancy. We both needed to hurry… as she struggled to re-center, to believe in herself, and to trust her body, mind, heart and soul.
What can be helpful in such a situation? Reassurance, compassion, and gentle constructive recommendations to find her sense of Self. She needed some fun and creative approach to work with past traumas. She worked passingly on rebuilding trust on her potential and her intuition.
I was glad she came. It was a good sign of self-care and self-respect. I wish all pregnant women had the possibility to stop, to talk, to listen, to re-focus, and prepare for such an important milestone.
And they actually have such an opportunity by attending our group for parturients. The enrollment is open and we welcome women at any age of gestation.
