Through writing, podcasting and birth support, Mellisa Reeves' goal is to provide connection and support for women and their experiences of motherhood, creating space for issues such as birth choices, loss, anxiety & career balance. She believes in the innate intuition that all women possess and in helping mothers truly own and tell their stories. She is the co-host of the podcast, Motherbirth.
Here are a few of the big topics we talked about:
Her transformation from someone who was completely disconnected from her intuition to a woman who understands just how deep her feminine power lies.
Finding the willingness to become who you want to be.
How a loss can be the catalyst to pull yourself into a new place of being.
How her son helped her begin to listen to her inner voice.
Learning to distinguish the difference between what we know in our head vs. what we know in our hearts and bodies.
Understanding that if what we are doing isn't working, we can choose to change it without risking anything.
Making the connection with everyone in your life AND with yourself the number one priority.
Understanding that our own needs are legitimate and learning how to take care of them.
In Melissa's Voice:
“Part of the journey of motherhood is realizing the stakes aren't as high as we think they are.”
“If you want something different you have to do something different.”
“Put the connection with your child first.”
“As women we don't believe that our own needs are legitimate, and that has to change.”
