A BabyMoon....Thoughts From Kerstin PDF Print E-mail

Like a honeymoon the term “Baby Moon” has come to mean many different things but one aspect is a constant fixture: time away. This can be done in a secluded location or in the comfort of your own home.  I was drawn to pregnancy related retreat work from my own instinctive need to create a BabyMoon for my second child.  I yearned to draw apart from the hustle and bustle of life and focus on the upcoming birth and the ramifications it had on my life and the life of my family.  So I did a silent weekend retreat on my own since there was nothing out there that really fit my needs.

I took time to journal and pray and meditate.  It was wonderful to connect with that sweet new life growing within me without the distractions of life's daily demands.  I took lots of walks in nature and just took time to breathe.  Not only was my sense of connection to my baby heightened during this time, my sense of self and my awareness of the beauty of the nature all around me reached new levels.   


It was a wonderful experience and one that I really felt called to share with other women.  Our culture just does not make the space or time necessary to spiritually and emotionally honor the coming of a new child.  Through a holistic program of relaxation, visualizations and meditation, ritual, and education, I've created a place for women to connect with themselves and their babies in a deeper way.  They are reinforced in trusting that their bodies know how to bring their babies into the world in the calm and gentle way that Nature intended. 


My background in sacred ritual, spiritual exercises, reiki energy healing, and natural childbirth education has given me a variety of tools to drawn on in creating this unique experience for myself and others.   I have also found in working with moms that it is important to take time afterward to integrate the birth into one’s life both energetically and emotionally.  So the experience does not stop with the prenatal retreat, but also includes postpartum birth circles for mom and baby.


For me a BabyMoon was a must and I think many other women find themselves in similar situations.  I look forward to meeting many of those women in the future and listening to their experiences and ideas
