Pregnancy

At Lotus Womb, we view pregnancy as a sacred time. As a woman begins to carry new life, she embarks upon a profound journey of transformation from Maiden to Mother. This journey, although often joyful, can certainly have its challenges and discomforts. Without the proper self-care and supports in place, these ailments have a way of taking center-stage. At Lotus Womb, we get to the root cause of these issues and work to resolve them. Pregnancy isn’t meant to be riddled with pain with discomfort. Just because it’s common, doesn’t mean it’s normal.

If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms during your pregnancy, we can help:

  • Constipation

  • Fatigue

  • Heartburn

  • Nausea

  • Uterine Cramping

  • Vaginal Yeast infections

  • Hemorrhoids

  • Round Ligament Pain

  • Baby’s birthing position

  • Edema

  • Emotional blocks and fears

  • Insomnia

  • Group B Strep

  • Stretch Marks

Blessingway Ceremony

In our baby-centered society, we often hold “Baby Showers” to celebrate a woman’s pregnancy. A beautiful alternative, a Blessingway Ceremony, instead honors the Mother. She gathers her closest sister-friends to participate in a loving ceremony facilitated by one of us. Each ceremony is tailored to individual desires and needs, but can include guided meditations, sacred feminine rituals, and pampering and adorning the mother. She will leave feeling like the Queen she is!

VBAC Support

Women who seek a vaginal birth after a history of cesarean are likely to face enormous pressure to schedule a repeat cesarean. Julia will help you unpack your previous birth, navigate emotional work, explore feelings, and become informed on your choices so you feel empowered and ready for your upcoming birth.


A woman as long as she lives, will remember how she was made to feel at her birth.” - Anna Verwaal
