Cesarean births are in an uprising change. What is the meaning of this birth from a soul perspective? How do women connect to the depth of birth in the experience of the emergency or in the planned cesarean? This is NOT about blame for the mother, victimization, or making cesarean births look glamorous and casual. This is about the power of the feminine and a healing journey in this world. The cesarean birth was created for a reason and it can save lives, traumatize lives, and heal lives. Is it a wake UP call for healing birth and awakening the collective energy of the feminine & masculine to make birth better and bring it back to a place of sacredness and LOVE.
If you had a cesarean and YOU are struggling then let your experience show you healing! Cesarean births are full of uncertainty like any birth and try not to misinterpret your birth by believing that you had control over the outcome because of your body or lack of or full support from your environment. It involves many elements and each soul shares the appropriate energy in that moment (mother, father, child, & birth professionals & so on).
The healing after cesarean for mother and child is a very unique journey. We must continue to come together to infuse LOVE into birth no matter what kind of birth a women experiences. We must also acknowledge the infant's journey and needed emotional and spiritual care. Let us each be a teacher of change by exploring the birth of humanity with love and awareness. Birth is not a one size fits all approach. Birth is a journey that is sacred, deep, intense, exuberant, meaningful, and of course purposeful. It is the foundation of each human being in this world. That is amazing! We all come from a womb!!!
What is a Sacred Cesarean/ Heart Centered Cesarean? How do you create it?
A sacred cesarean begins with bringing awareness to birth with power in pregnancy and into motherhood. It is about creating a birth that gives to you with an open heart, actions of kindness, and uniting in love. "A positive cesarean is making a conscious commitment to create better cesarean births for mother and child. It involves building into the cesarean birth a gentle, compassionate, empathic, and loving approach in birth. In order for a positive cesarean to come together a mother needs to find a great doctor that understands the importance of building a positive birth from the beginning and into the life of the mother and child relationship." Quote from Sacred Cesarean: A Planned Entrance into the World. Your cesarean birth whether it be by medical emergency or elective can be created in a kind and compassionate way. The many names are: Sacred Cesarean, Positive Cesarean, Family Centered Cesarean, Natural Cesarean, Gentle Cesarean, or Kind Cesarean.

Work with Kelly for a Sacred Cesarean Experience (Get guidance during your pregnancy, birth, & into postpartum)
Sacred Cesarean Experience (SCE) is an transformative, experiential, transpersonal, and healing experience for mother and child. SCE is for women that are having elective or medically necessary cesarean sections. SCE promotes a family centered / positive cesarean birth. A sacred cesarean under the program of SCE follows an interdisciplinary model of Transpersonal Psychology, Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology, Spirituality, Neurobiology, and Somatic Psychology. The program works within all these areas to create the most optimum mind and body experience for the childbearing mother before her cesarean birth and in postpartum healing and recovery.
The SCE program is a gentle, kind, and deeply rich approach that uses the body and mind to assist a mother in preparing emotionally and spirituality for her cesarean birth. SCE offers spiritual bonding with baby before birth, highly specialized support, a unique sacred plan, and a individualized Sacred Cesarean Birth Plan and sign for hospital. 7 sessions are uniquely planned for the mother and baby's healing needs with an emphasis in breath awareness, body movement, inner meditation, and other holistic body therapies. A sacred cesarean is a new philosophy that expresses compassion and kindness in birth for the cesarean mother and cesarean born child.
How is works? The Sacred Cesarean Experience starts at around 30-36 weeks in pregnancy and it involves 7 sessions before the birth and sometimes after. In the free consultation it is discussed how this experience can benefit the mother and baby. Each SCE is uniquely built around the birth and it is not a cookie cut out or pre-made experience. It is designed around the needs of the mother with a flexible outline in creating the most optimum birth experience within the cesarean.
Who is this for? All kinds of women that deeply want a birth that is kind, compassionate, empowering, and loving. Women join this program during pregnancy with issues of breech presentation, repeat cesarean/ elective, placenta previa, multiple births, second time mothers, and other medical conditions. Also for VBAC mothers that want a backup plan (suggest the Sacred Cesarean Birth E-Guide).
Sacred Cesarean Experience ○ It involves therapeutic guidance that works with a body/mind philosophy. ○ Bonding meditations, heart and breathe meditations, and sacred birth visualizations. ○ An individualized Sacred Cesarean Birth Plan designed specifically for mother & Birth Sign. ○ Preparation before cesarean birth for full support with emergency availability. ○ Talking to spirit of child and sacred understanding of baby communication. ○ Birth psychology focus for baby after in postnatal therapy. ○ During the cesarean the mother will apply her learning to feel deeply and internally resourced. ○ In postpartum recovery attention to healing, bonding, and wellness conversation for extra support for mother and child. ○ Sacred Cesarean Birth E-Guide (Sacred Entrance into the World) & Sacred KIT
A sacred cesarean helps a mother build confidence and involvement in her birth; her baby is born into a better situation under the conditions of a cesarean; a mother feels emotionally resourced before and after, and most importantly the mother gets a conscious, connected, and compassionate birth. Birthing women want the best outcome in birth for the baby and themselves in a safe, protective, and loving environment. SCE allows a mother to have a sacred and connected birth within the cesarean.
