Matrix Birth Reimprinting

For all mothers or mothers-to-be, I highly recommend at least one session with a Matrix Birth Reimprinting practitioner. MBR is a powerful healing modality that I used during my second pregnancy to clear trauma from my own birth and Elan's birth. You can rewrite those experiences, connect with your baby and visualize your upcoming birth. (My actual birth ended up being very similar to what I experienced during my Matrix Birth Reimprinting session!)
