Reflect On Your Birth, Honor Your Body, and Find Peace

Every birth day is unique. Every mother deserves the chance to understand and acknowledge hers. This guided, 10-day guided course helps you pay homage to your birth experience.

This course is for anyone who wants to...

+ Begin recovery from a difficult, raw birth.

From unexpected interventions to emergency cesarean deliveries, many modern mamas are having hard times in childbirth. This course helps aid the healing process so you're able to move through your experience and enjoy more of motherhood.

+ Memorialize an ideal birth.

You don't need a difficult birth before you take time to process it. Even if you've had a "perfect" labor and delivery, this course helps you reflect, revisit the details while they're fresh in your mind, and create a record of your birth day that you can look back on for life.

+ Understand and respect the impact of a hard childbirth, even when the outcome is a "healthy mom and baby"

"All that matters is that everyone is healthy." "Mom and baby are doing great." Physical health is key in childbirth, of course -- but mom's emotional health and well-being are critical, too. Too often we believe that as long as mom and baby seem "okay," nothing else matters. But if you're the one who's gone through a difficult labor and delivery, then you know, on a soul-level, that it isn't enough. This course helps you get closer to whole health, body, mind, and spirit.

What to Expect...

  • Be able to look back on your birth and talk about it with your partner and loved ones
  • Honor your experience, no matter what it was
  • Stop "birth labeling" and the long-term suffering that it causes
  • Create a written birth record that heals you, physically and emotionally
  • Move through your birth memories more easily, and know where to turn for professional support
  • Feel proud of yourself, and tap into your supermama side

What You'll Learn

  • The 1 thing you must do to make peace with your birth
  • A step-by-step process to writing your birth story
  • 3 key actions that speed up birth acceptance
  • Expert techniques for forgiving yourself and others

FAQ

+ What do I get with this course?

Once you enroll, you'll have access to the first of 10 daily lessons in your Sanctuary dashboard. (You'll also receive an optional lesson prompt each day by email.) Each lesson includes a series of alternating practices, including exploratory writing prompts, imagery exercises, audio recordings for listening and download, short, reflective essays, powerful excerpts from professional experts, and favorite resources for continued learning.

+ What if I can't finish the course in 10 days?

No worries! You'll have access to all 10 lessons in your Sanctuary dashboard, and you'll receive gentle email prompts for the full 10-day course period. That said, there's no need to rush through the material. Indeed, some lessons may require more reflection or time than others, and you're strongly encouraged to go at your own pace. You have lifetime access to the course, so take all of the time that you need. It will be there for you whenever you're ready.

+ My wife still hasn't recovered from her birth, even though she's healed and our baby is healthy. Will this help her feel better?

First, it's wonderful that you're helping your wife through this. Family and community support is instrumental in recovery. Second, while she may have healed physically and you have a beautiful, healthy babe, her feelings are extremely common. The mental, emotional, and spiritual wounds from difficult birth can run deep, and the work must continue to heal her "whole" self. This course is designed for that work, helping new moms work through difficult and even some traumatic birth experiences. It was developed by a trained postpartum doula based on empirical research and study, and it has been reviewed by a professional licensed psychotherapist. However, this course is not certified by any institution or organization, and it is not a substitute for licensed professional therapy or other support. If your wife has symptoms of any perinatal mood disorders -- such as extreme sadness, insomnia, fear, anxiety, or paranoia -- please encourage her to reach out to a licensed therapist, her doctor, a postpartum organization (and, in severe cases, contact your nearest hospital emergency room). This course is a wonderful complement to her therapeutic work with a professional support. To learn more about perinatal mood disorders, you can also access Ritual Care's free course, PPD 101: Essentials for New Parents.

+ I have postpartum depression (PPD) and perinatal post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Will this course help?

This course is designed to help new moms work through difficult and even some traumatic birth experiences, which are risk factors for both PPD and PTSD. It was developed by a trained postpartum doula based on empirical research and study, and it has been reviewed by a professional licensed psychotherapist. However, this course is not certified by any institution or organization, and it is not a substitute for licensed professional therapy or other support. If you have symptoms of any perinatal mood disorder (such as PPD and/or PTSD), please reach out to a licensed therapist, your doctor, or a postpartum organization (and, in severe cases, contact your nearest hospital emergency room). This course is a wonderful complement to your therapeutic work with professional support. To learn more about perinatal mood disorders, you can also access Ritual Care's free course, PPD 101: Essentials for New Parents.
