Visualization plays a major role in trying to conceive. The connection between mind and body are forces that power the subconscious to send signals to perform our desired outcomes. By using guided imagery, you can leverage this innate and powerful mind-body connection to achieve real and physical changes in your body. Pregnancy is one area where visualization is key in achieving a positive result. When a desired pregnancy does not occur it can lead to high levels of stress, anxiety, depression and a host of other changes that often cause a chemical imbalance setting off a chain of events. Many women and couples are at a loss of where to begin. Below I’ve put together a few things that helped me and hopefully that can help you get started in your own personal visualization process:
- Keep a journal of positive affirmations
- Create a Vision Board
- Guided Meditation
- Think about your favorite form of exercise and do it!
- Surround yourself with positive people and those who support you in your journey
- Light a candle first thing in the morning for a short meditation or right before bed
- Think about your baby! See it, smell it, touch your belly and visualize your baby in your womb.
Trust me, it works! This process rewarded me with two beautiful girls 🙂

This is often the first question I’m asked when I meet women and the discussion turns into what I do for a living. After I explain it, I’m always met with a “Wow, that’s pretty cool” ” Is that like a Doula?” or ” Where were you when I was having my kids.” I love talking to people about what I do and how I can help them or someone they know have a phenomenal birth experience. Well, to answer the questions we birth consultants are a “jack of all trades” when it comes to birth. We come to your rescue about any and every question you may have that’s pre/post pregnancy related and beyond. Birth consultants work with an expectant woman or couple from pre-conception through post-partum recovery. Although we are NOT your primary caregiver, we ARE your advocate, support person, and friend. We will make sure your are not bullied by the medical world into making decisions you are not sure about. I truly believe a mother always knows, others make her second guess.
The before and after of the birth experience can be a scary road for some. It’s my job to make sure the fear of conceiving and giving birth becomes non-existent. Many couples have questions about the financial aspect of having a baby; this is another area I cover with clients. From arranging short and long term disability to reviewing hospital discharge bills and finding financial support for families the goal is to make sure your family is equipped to make informed decisions while having the birth experience you want.
During the last year I’ve worked with many beautiful mothers whom are overwhelmed with the process of conceiving or not conceiving when they would like. Having had the same experience, we often have the mind set that we are on our own time and babies will come when WE want them to. In essence, spiritually, this is possible however, everything must be in sync. Mama’s vibrations must be elevated so the body can do its work. When we offer resistance we are saying to the universe the very thing we are asking for is not what we want. Being open and receptive allows for many transformations to start to take place, when we let go we allow the season that’s supposed to take place in our lives manifest. Be open, Be True, Be You.
Now that’s something to think about! I knew right away when I was pregnant with my first child that I would have a waterbirth. It just seemed like it would be so calm and tranquil, and what better environment to bring a baby into. It was the best experience of my life, everything went exactly how we wanted, the water made labor more manageable and squatting was the best position for me as it allowed gravity to do its thing.
I really encourage you to think about what kind of birth you would like, I’ve worked with people who dreamed of having their babies outdoors in nature but were afraid to do so because of what the “naysayers” said. Listen to your inner goddess, she know’s exactly what to do and don’t forget to ask baby as well, believe it or not they speak to us a lot in the womb.
