Reiki energy is pure love, holding us in a container where we can release the things that block the Great Bright Light of our True Self, and to deeply engage a state of balance and wholeness—a state we call “healing.” Imagine growing and raising a child inside of such a container…
Sacred Childbirth with Reiki™ puts the power and practices of Reiki in your and your birth partner’s* hands to deeply support you during pregnancy, birth and throughout your parenting journey. This program is for those who are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant, and your birthing partner(s) if they wish to participate, who seek pathways of empowerment, connection and embodiment inside of your pregnancy, birthing and parenting journey. Whether you plan a home or hospital birth, Reiki will be a trusted and powerful ally for you.
You will learn the full system of Reiki at First Degree level, with the emphasis on the use of Reiki during pregnancy, birth and to support your growing child. You will leave with Reiki First Degree certification. You with gain the tools, experiences and knowledge to:
Form deep energetic connection with the baby, for profound early bonding between unborn baby and family;
Bring deep relaxation into the core of your being, and ease pain and discomfort during pregnancy, delivery and postpartum;
Reduce the need for medication to manage common symptoms of pregnancy (such as swollen feet, digestive problems, back and nerve pain, numbness of limbs, etc.);
Support you in navigating the ever-changing nature of the pregnant body; and to feel integrated through the changes;
Prepare the body and spirit for the birthing process for both baby and family;
Deepen your relationship to your powerful body and its innate capacity to birth your baby; support natural childbirth if that is desired;
Practice Reiki on self and others at the First Degree certification level.
You can take this training as part of a pre-scheduled class and join a cohort of others in this journey, or schedule a private training for you and your birth partner(s). Reach out with questions or to schedule a private training.

More About Reiki:
Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese Buddhism, Shintoism and martial arts, developed in the late 1800's by Mikao Usui. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work that is incredibly sweet and gentle as it loosens and releases pain, emotional blocks and undesired energy trapped in the body. Practicing Reiki leads us to a greater understanding of what healing really is.
It is complimentary to other forms of medical or healing work, and can support physical, mental and spiritual health. Reiki encourages a person's body and spirit to release anything that no longer serves, and that's ready to release. Just as pouring cool water through a dusty pipe washes away loose dust and debris, Reiki washes through a person's system and loosens up pain, negative emotions and energy blocks, re-energizing the system towards remembering the wholeness of your true self.
The benefits of Reiki include:
Reduction in stress and pain
Reduced reliance on pain medication
Greater clarity and calm; greater self-knowledge
Deeper integration between mind, body and spirit
Particularly supportive during pregnancy, times of injury or illness, or times of transition.
