Heart of Birth & Parenting – Counseling, Coaching & Healing (Accepting New Clients)
“It is with joy, I bring you Heart of Birth and Parenting Consultations. Respecting and working with the natural unfolding of pregnancy, birth and parenting, I offer deep listening, practices and experiences to help you discover the Heart of Birth. I value building authentic relationships that are grounded in wisdom perspectives, building trust and connection with the sacred.
I BELIEVE BIRTH IS HOLY. Pregnancy, birth and parenting are natural expressions of life and who we are. This experience is transformative though not generally tended well in our modern culture. I help women and their partners remember this or discover it for the first time.” – Lisa Lichtig, MD & Mara’akame (Healer – Wixárika Tradition)
In 2015, Dr. Lichtig retired from offering prenatal care and attending births after 27 years of experience caring for approximately 800 pregnant women and families birthing at home and in the hospital. Dr. Lisa, as she is fondly referred to, still guides and supports families through the experience of pregnancy and birth and into parenthood; honoring and supporting the changes and growth that occur for pregnant women, their partners and their families. She now offers heart of birth and parenting consultations including and up to the first 6 weeks of postpartum guidance facilitating a gentle transition into parenthood. These consultations can augment a women’s regular prenatal care she may be receiving from a doctor, or midwife, and include support for the father and other children.
