About me
Ada first trained as a doula and went on to apprentice as a midwife and has been to many births in the role as either a doula, a midwife and more recently as a Somatic worker. Ada helps people work Somatically with the grief and trauma held in their body and can assist you in creating the tools needed to release old trauma to make more space for the current pregnancy, birth and/or postpartum experience.

This is not Childbirth Education. Meaning that I will not go into details about stages of labor or hospital procedures and birth positions or aftercare for newborns unless it is a ... moreplace you are holding fear, and then we will focus on what you personally need. I am an experienced birth worker, so my knowledge and experience with birth will always be present in sessions. However, we will instead be focusing on the Somatic wisdom that lives in our bodies.

We will together work with fears, past trauma (birth or other), grief or whatever is in the way, even if undefined.

We will do group somatic exercises and there will be focused time for everyone to do personal Somatic work while we all hold the space for what is present for you.

Together we will look deep at your specific questions, concerns and fears around pregnancy, birth and postpartum. You will build/add to your personal toolkit to help grow resiliency and capacity for pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

We will listen deeper to what you already know, what you need to remember and what you may be ready to release to make space for this birth. By working deeply with the fear of the unknown, you will remember and learn new settling practices while trying to expand your room for curiosity and perhaps excitement of the unknown.

I will offer my witness, accompaniment, intuition, knowledge and experience to facilitate you in creating the space to discover what your body remembers about integration and wholeness.

I deeply prioritize holding space for past and present trauma and grief. And this group is open to anyone ready to show up.

Group is open to 5 participants. Please email to schedule a short consultation to see if this group is right for you.
