Other Services

Birth Story Listening

Birth can be an incredible and sometimes complex experience. Many parents come away from birth with feelings of joy, gratitude, and pride. At the same time, unexpected or unwanted events can nag at you and create feelings of sadness, disappointment, or even anger. A private session with a trained Birth Story Listener gives you the space to explore and tell your story in a different way, and in a way that helps you begin to reframe your story and find healing. Birth Story sessions are helpful both for parents who have experienced a difficult birth and birth professionals who have attended difficult births.  Sessions are 60-90 minutes long and take place in a private 1 on 1 setting.

Cost: $50
Call Shannan Williams to book your session 918-274-3758
