Shamanic Healing After Cesarean Section or Traumatic Birth Experience

shamanic healing after childbirth Childbirth is one of the most important events in a Woman’s life. The memory of the experience will stay with her much longer than any other experience and affect her profoundly. The majority of the time giving birth proceeds normally and naturally as planned but on occasion something unexpected may occur which can result in in a negative experience , trauma and unplanned cesarean section. These negative experiences imprint in the LEF (Luminous Energy Field link) and unless cleared can continue to affect her physically , emotionally and spiritually for many years as well as making it stressful to plan another pregnancy. If a Cesarean Section is planned you can arrange for a session prior to the surgery and as soon as possible in order to facilitate a smoother and faster recovery. As a result of my own experiences I chose to become a Birth Doula and started a support group for women who were recovering from unplanned cesarean section and planning for Vaginal Birth After Cesarean ( VBAC). I attended births for over 10 years and helped women and their partners plan and experience more positive birth experiences. It took a long time to heal from my unplanned cesarean because at the time I was unaware of the effects on my energetic body. Certain events would trigger emotions that I thought were healed, I relived the experience over and over again, often blaming myself and asking “What if only….?” I was physically exhausted and in constant pain for 6 months and when it came time to plan the birth of my daughter old fears surfaced and I thought the same experience would repeat itself. Years later I still experienced negative emotions associated with my unplanned Cesarean and wish I would had known about the benefits of Shamanic healing. I am very happy to be able to help women in their recovery process today enabling them to move forward into a more positive experience. Shamanic Work is very beneficial and can help facilitate healing physically , emotionally and spiritually. Ideally Shamanic Work should be performed as soon as possible after the surgery to help facilitate healing and prevent heavy accumulations of sludge in the Chakra related closest to the incision. Typically the first two Chakra’s are affected and can contribute to imbalances in all of the Chakra’s The first Chakra is the Root Chakra Location: Perineum, base of spine, cockerel plexus The function of this Chakra is Survival and Grounding The symptoms of Root Chakra imbalance are:
  • Weight problems
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Constipation
  • Sciatica
  • Degenerative Arthritis
  • Knee Problems
The second Chakra is the Sacral Chakra. Location: Lower abdomen , genitals, womb Function: Desire, Pleasure, Sexuality, Procreation The symptoms of Sacral Chakra Imbalance are:
  • Impotence
  • Frigidity
  • Uterine, Bladder or Kidney Trouble
  • Lower Back issues
If you are planning a Vaginal Birth after Cesarean I would suggest you work with a practitioner at least a year in advance of planning your next birth. Many times I was hired as a Doula for VBAC support when there was only a month or so left in the pregnancy leaving little time if any to ideally prepare for unexpected issues that came up as a result of unresolved emotional issues related to the prior birth.
