Beyond that it’s about so much more, including:
~ Radical self responsibility.
~ Breaking cycles of trauma and abuse.
~ Coming back to yourself so that you can parent authentically.
~ Trusting your children are here to guide your journey as you re-parent yourself.
There are many things that I advocate for such as:
- Undisturbed pregnancy and birth
- Lotus birth
- Full-term breast feeding
- Co-sleeping and bed sharing
- Baby wearing
- Baby-led weaning
- Elimination communication
- Baby sign language
- Baby massage
- The co-creation of boundaries over discipline,
- Allowing children to access and follow their will
- Non-judgemental and fully informed medical choices
- Homeschooling and unschooling
- Sustainable living
- Spontaneous dance for pregnancy, birth and life and so much more.
My two favourite tools on this journey are Non-Violent Communication and Body Movement.
As you journey with me you’ll notice that all of these things are not mutually exclusive from what Conscious Parenting is deeply about. However, I enjoy normalising how incredibly powerful our children and our innate knowledge both are.
While we use the tools to support undisturbed and physiologically aligned conception, pregnancy, birth and post-partum, they are not required; every family is so uniquely different that there’s no ‘right’ way to journey. We are each on our own individual path and if you are ready to take full responsibility of your thoughts, actions, inactions and expressions and delve into conscious parenting, then I welcome to you come sit, as we grow together.
With love and gratitude
