Moons of Motherhood

{The Moon Month: 28 Days of Postpartum Care and Rest E-Course Coming Soon!}

The Moons of Motherhood

We live in a culture where birth is often viewed as a medical event that is painful, traumatic, and frightening.  At Light Footsteps, we believe there is another way to experience birth.  Birth should be a transformative, spiritual event where women undergo the deep work of moving from maidenhood to motherhood.  Ideally, we should work toward a birth that is a welcoming, loving, and warm experience for the new being coming Earthside.

We believe all women have the choice to birth where they feel safest and will be most supported to welcome their baby.  We also believe that a return to honoring women and babies is one of the key transformations that must take place to move toward a sustainable, Earth-centered culture.

After the birth of our daughter (read our birth story here), Christine became passionate about helping other women reclaim their sacred birthright to find joy and love in the pregnancy and birth process.  She has taken several courses with Sacred Pregnancy and loves to support women through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Currently, there are a variety of herbal remedies and support available for pregnant and postpartum women in our shop.

I took the leap and am training as a birth doula with Birth Arts International.

As part of the educational requirements I am required to attend 5 births in the community.  Any and all birth plans are welcome! If you are interested in having me support your birth (free of charge!) starting in January 2018, please contact me!
