#201 – Midwifing Our Culture into a New Way with Rachelle Garcia Seliga

ATK - Podcast Branding V02-02

I feel so privileged to be able to speak to so many women around the world about how we need to do matresence differently. Even when the conversation cannot provide ‘easy’ answers. Even when we realise that, perhaps, the system is too broken. I already knew we need to honour the transition to motherhood and support women differently and this conversation only opened my eyes, yet again, to the requirements of midwifing ourselves and continuing to do it better. Listen as Amy and Rachelle talk about:

  • Cultural understandings, immigrating as a new mother and finding yourself in a brand new surroundings when the veil lifts and how we can look around and realise how much we desire more.
  • How our programming and conditioning can get potentised by the intensity of birth and how that can affect our birth experience.
  • Tuning into how mothers really feel, because as mothers we carry life and we provide an important aspect for humanity’s health.
  • Taking responsibility and being in a good way with our power, in order to exalt and uplift others – especially within a healthcare practitioner environment.

Rachelle embraces the original meaning of the word ‘midwife,’ which is caretaker of the people's health from ‘womb to tomb’ and has several ways to connect with her. She has a free ebook: The Five Cross-Cultural Prescriptions of Postpartum WELLNESS https://www.innatetraditions.com/download-free-ebook and a free class: Rites of Passage & The Postpartum Period https://www.innatetraditions.com/replay-free-class-rites-of-passage
