Meditation While Waiting for Baby

Get your partner or a good friend who will be at your birth to do this Venus Kriya with you:

* Sit facing each other, knees touching, and look into each other’s eyes

* Put your palms together, fingers up with your partner’s.

* As you push each other’s Pam’s back and forth, alternate hands like paddling a boat. Sing as you rock from side to side: “Row row row your boat Gently down the stream, Merrily merrily merrily merrily, Life is but a dream”

* Listen to the words as you sing them—they’re reminding you to go with the flow

* Do this for three to five minutes.

Have fun and laugh! Remember, your baby is hearing the words, too.

Labor is like the weather: unpredictable. Due dates are imaginary numbers not created by God. It’s something that we get caught on but your body will do labor when it’s ready. Our babies are born at certain times and certain place otherwise there would be no order to the universe.

💫 Tibetans believe that regardless of the due date, a baby won’t come forward into the world until the star under which it is destined to be born in shining. 🌟

When we get hung up on the due dates we set ourselves up for disappointment as well as feeling a failure or “is there something wrong?” I encourage you to talk to your child. Whenever you want to be with your baby, roll your eyes up to your Third Eye point, which corresponds to your pituitary gland, called the master gland because it regulates hormones. This is your direct line to the womb. If you get quiet enough, you will know what your baby is thinking and feeling.

Slow down, space out, sleep, walk, get into your baby’s realm of frequency.

🌟Explore this sweet and simple meditation while waiting for your baby. Sending much love to all the pregnant mamas!

 "I cannot encapsulate a better experience than having Suzanna as our doula...She was not only incredible support during postpartum but we also consider her a friend. She provided us incredible support with such a calm, empowering demeanor. She is also such an incredible resource and wealth of knowledge. We couldn't have made it the last three months without her, and every time she was away, we missed her (and still do)! If you are looking for postpartum support or a night nurse, Suzanna truly is a great person to have and we are so grateful to have experienced sharing post birth with her." -NW 2020


"Suzanna helped me through the beginning of a new phase of motherhood as a stay-at-home mommy of two. She coached me, helped me create and track goals to keep my brain focused, and provided an outlet for much-needed adult interaction in those first few months while everything was overwhelming and new. She was patient and kind, she listened to my opinions and concerns, and made sure that my mental health was a priority when I didn’t have the brain space to spend on it.

Suzanna is incredibly knowledgeable about pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, postpartum, and childcare; which was so helpful when I was exhausted, struggling with the changes my body had just gone through and had two little ones to look after on top of it all. It was life-giving having someone to care specifically for me and my mental health in this transitional time. It helped me become the best mom I could be." -2018


“We cannot even begin to express our sincere gratitude for Suzanna and her expertise. As first time parents (and first time mom of a now almost 7 month old!), my husband and I were unfamiliar with the role of postpartum doulas. She introduced us to incredible care centered on the recovering mom and needs of the brand new infant. Our daughter arrived a bit early, and was less than 5 lbs when we brought her home; she required a “triple feeding schedule” that resulted in almost 90 minutes of various forms of feeding followed by 30 minutes of rest...and repeat!  Needless to say, and despite so much love and support from our families, we were exhausted. Suzanna was truly a light in the haze of sleeplessness and new-parent uncertainty. Her unassuming and warm presence, calming words, as well as evidence-based, postpartum/breastfeeding knowledge were unparalleled. She skillfully guided us all through the early weeks of parenthood (and with COVID looming). We recommend her services to all!” -2020
