My name is Carolyn Hood and I am mother to two beautiful children. In previous chapters of my life, before having children, I have been a neurological physiotherapist trained in Bobath therapy and I have studied meditation teaching and life coaching. I also love country living, my horses and being with soul sisters.
At the beginning of my motherhood journey, my doula gave me one piece of advice, which was to "Follow your heart and it will always be right for your baby". This set me on a journey I never imagined and also my husband! As a first time mum being surrounded by people who's advice did not reasonate with my heart, I had a hard road early on. I was not confident to stop self doubt from creeping in and was pressured by those around me to do things differently. Through this journey I found my strength and peace with the mother I was. The strength to be a gentle parent at this point in evolution and to shine! My husband too had a deep journey adjusting to gentle parenting. Along this hard road we rediscovered mutual understanding, respect and growth as we evolved in many leaps.
I then discovered the Steiner philosophy, crying tears of gratitude in that moment, with its intuitive depth and huge breadth of wisdom on how to nurture a soul to earth and a child's soul development. I spent the next years studying this wisdom and implementing it in our home, simplifying my lifestyle which has been an important part of my enjoyment of motherhood. I continue to spend this sacred time, passionately studying this wisdom and the art of homemaking, as we begin homeschooling. Following my inspiration and developing my intuition to guide my family, while also nurturing that of my children.
- a soul nurturing e course to guide you from busily pregnant to calm, centred and connected, ready for gentle birth and gentle mothering.
Do you desire to make your pregnancy a sacred journey but not sure how?
Do you struggle to find time to read all the books?
Are you worried about how your partner and you will work together in the parenting role?
Would you love to feel prepared for birth AND motherhood on ALL levels? Practically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually? Calm, grounded and connected?
This is how I felt at the beginning of my pregnancy. I read many books and had a doula but my preparation was patchy and i really never felt nurtured through my pregnancy.
The first two years with my baby were "a journey", a hard journey with my husband. I was chasing my tale researching products and reading what i needed to for the phase i was in. Little did i know my husband was not at all prepared or ready for parenthood and we were on opposite poles of parenting styles! Through the journey I learnt to be grounded with the mother I was and how to gently lead my family. We got through that period and are now a very connected and aligned gentle family. However, this learning and settling took away from the most beautiful time of life with a beautiful baby.
My heart felt desire is that you and your partner can feel nurtured and prepared so that you, the beautiful mother, can simply enjoy your first years with your baby. I have prepared a program that nurtures mother on all levels with all elements that I feel are important preparation for gentle birth, gentle motherhood and a gentle family.
