Parent Soul Medicine
A 3 Month Journey Within to Cultivate Wellness
Are you feeling the weight of parenthood?
Is it long over due for you to get your own needs met, for you to reconnect with yourself & to start to feel like the parent you have always wanted MINUS the judgement and shame that just drags you down further?
You and so many other parents feel it. You aren't alone in this but it can FEEL like we are alone (this last few years can ALSO add to the isolation factor).
It's hard because you read all the books, you took classes, you prepared so much for birth and babe but what nobody prepares you for HOW to be a parent.
Not the baby care basics, I mean how to be with yourself, how to FEEL like a parent, how to HEAL from your birth, how to recover from depletion and exhaustion and how to be true to yourself while balancing parent life.
This course is for you if you...
Feel like you are falling apart on the inside but somehow seem to keep it together
Want to heal from the effects of birth trauma, postpartum depletion or postpartum mood disorders
Want to bond with your baby/children on a soul level
Desire a deeply intimate relationship with yourself
Shed your parent guilt/shame
Break toxic and harmful generational patterns
What is waiting for you inside?
You will sit in circle with other parents for three months with loving guidance from Postpartum Coach & Parent Soul Creatrix Meg Sweetman. Through weekly group calls, journal prompts, guided meditations & many other useful healing modalities - you will begin to break free from the self-defeating habits, to reclaim your story and begin to integrate the mother identity with your own - so you can feel whole, strong and resilient. Through doing the work and making this time for yourself -you will gain insight about yourself that will carry you through life in a confident and authentic manner. You will come out of this course with the tools you need to lead the life YOU want as a parent and as a sovereign and strong being.
Creating the container + Intention Setting
The gathering of energy – you and other postpartum parents first come together, uniting in the shared vision of prioritizing ourselves and honoring our journey into parenthood, using our life force - our breath to start to regulate ourselves we co-create the space that will hold one another through this journey of the soul.
Reparenting yourself - Healing Generational Wounds
Creating a rhythm (with you in the center)
You Inner Seasons – going with your flow
Now nourished, loved up, and finding our own footing we start to pinpoint the source of parental burn out, shedding layers of toxic generational patterns we learn what it means to put ourselves in the center of our daily rhythm and how to give to ourselves what we may have missed out on in childhood.
The Portal of Birth
Your Tools + EFT Tapping (Resource)
Birth Story Sharing
Here we begin to take stock of the innate coping skills we were born with while entering the portal of birth we work to practice acceptance and self-compassion. We honor who we were before entering the birth portal and who we are becoming. Through art modalities we process our stories collectively, surrounded with empathy and support.
Emotions as messengers (Resource)
Getting your needs met (Resource)
With new confidence, grounded in autonomy and trust in ourselves we start to feel more equipped to ride the waves of life, to navigate our own inner waters and our emotions – using them as beacons of light that we can shine on our inner most selves, allowing this emotional body to surface we speak our needs out to our support network with clarity and sure-ness.
Self Sabotage – the power of guilt & shame (Resource)
Movement + Nutrition + Sleep Hygiene
Now we emerge from the womb space, breathing life into our own needs we begin to break through parental guilt and stigma. We learn what our needs are, what makes us feel most ourselves and begin to heal ourselves, mind body and soul. Here we start with the basics of inviting movement into our lives, nourishing ourselves with easy but potent food choices and creating healthy sleep hygiene while beginning to touch on our own intimacy. (We have guest experts join us on some of these topics.)
Feeling more aligned within ourselves, connected and authentic – we merge these two pieces of our soul, the maiden and the mother (this is an energy not specific to gender), we reflect on our progress both as a group and our own path. We are now ready to cross the threshold into parenthood.
We have both undone and become. We are one with our identities.
We have concluded our Parent Soul Journey within this circle – but it only has just begun because we now have the tools to carry it forth in our lives.
We are our own teachers, healers and medicine makers.

& it's great to meet you where you are.
