"The opening inside yourself must come from you" - Gurmuka
When you're pregnant, you're more sensitive and emotional. And it's supposed to be that way.
You might notice you're getting stressed out about little things that wouldn't usually bother you - or big things that you thought you'd let go of; maybe your partner isn't helping out around the house the way you'd like him to - or maybe you're noticing you're feeling anxious about what the family expectations are after you give birth, or even at the birth - or maybe there's someone who you can't stand to be in the same room with.
Things that come up during pregnancy always come up for a reason. Pregnancy is designed to bring up your stuff, it's designed to make you feel uncomfortable, so you pay attention to it.
During pregnancy you have a unique opportunity to transform as a woman, it's designed this way so you don't have to carry forward some of stress, fear, tension and insecurities you have. You get to choose something different to move into motherhood with.
If you're noticing you're feeling antsy about something - pregnancy or birth related - or anything else in general, first of all notice what it is, and tell yourself the truth about it. THEN, put your hand on your heart and ask yourself what you most need? What would feel more loving to you?
Once you know the answer to these questions, you can go ahead and do something differently - so you can have different results, and feel more relaxed and energised throughout your pregnancy.

Local Midwife Gillian Sims and I are working together to bring you a unique workshop called Love Your Birth. Designed to support you through pregnancy, birth and into motherhood.
This workshop is limited to 10 women (no partners, men or kids - though if you're breastfeeding there are private rooms to express, and a cold fridge for storage - or you can have your husband/friend/mother, bring your little one by when it's time for a feed).
It's on the 15th and 16th of October 2016
Priced to please $120
You can relax and enjoy yummy baking, a refreshing lunch, tea, coffee (or decaf) and cool drinks.
We'll be in a beautiful architecturally designed home in Omokoroa, in the Bay of Plenty.
