When Anna discovered that she was pregnant, she reacted with fear and conflict. Unmarried and not ready or planning for children yet, she did not know how the baby’s father would take the news. In panic mode, she immediately felt nauseous. Over the next four months, Anna struggled with severe morning sickness while she planned a wedding.
Several years later, Anna again experienced an unexpected pregnancy. Again not prepared for a child, she “threw a temper tantrum”. As the pregnancy progressed, she experienced a plethora of prenatal complications indicative of potentially life-threatening pre-eclampsia: high blood pressure, lightheadedness, headaches, swelling, and nausea. With help from her midwife and an acupuncturist, Anna carried the pregnancy to term and delivered a healthy baby.
With both pregnancies, the initial negative emotional response Anna felt set the tone for a difficult prenatal period. When she discovered she was with child again, she knew she wanted a happier and healthier pregnancy than she’d had before.
Anna’s morning sickness in the first trimester presented early. She came to me for The Body Code™ work. We worked through traumas from the previous pregnancies. We made connections between her and her baby, and energetically cleared the space for a healthy pregnancy.
She experienced very little nausea with that pregnancy. Her energy levels during the pregnancy were higher, and her birth was surprisingly fast (only 5 hours!).
