After the profound experiences from my first pregnancy and birthing I was curious to see what was going to unfold for baby number two. Her journey begins well before her conception when my son was about 6 months old...

LESSON #1 ‘SHE IS MAKING HER PRESENCE KNOWN’.
This experience is hard to describe with words. It was such a palpable feeling that I will always remember.
One day when my son was about 6 months old I began to feel the presence of my second baby, a baby girl. The closest thing can describe the knowing of her presence to is a ‘full body craving’. Like when you’re really craving a certain food, you can feel it with your whole being and it consumes your mind. All day long, on and off, I had these full body knowings of my little girl, and I was convinced that if we were blessed enough to have a second bubba that she would be my little girl.
She made her presence known over the next 6 months leading up to me falling pregnant with her with regular visits to myself and one of my beautiful healers. This really blew me away at the time. And now as I write this it has become 'my normal' to communicate with my babies before they are conceived and born. They like to share with me what sex they will be, what name they would like to be called and a sneek peak into their personalities. It has also become something I love to do for others as well. To sit and tune in with their unborn babies energy and pass on any messages they have for their Mummas and anything else they wish to share.
LESSON #2 ‘ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE THE GUIDANCE YOU SEEK’.
Although my birth with my son was an incredible experience, it came with it’s challenges too. I had some physical recovery to do post birth and this lead to some fears when it came time to think about the birthing process again.
The week a pregnancy test confirmed the physical presence of my baby girl, so began some fears. Not as big as last time, because I had so much trust in my body knowing what to do. It was more of a ‘that post birth recovery was a part of the birthing process that I didn’t want to relive again’ kinda fear.
I was about 5 weeks pregnant (a week after her positive pregnancy test) when I felt the urge to talk to my baby girl and ask for her guidance. I closed my eyes and placed my hands on my belly and said something like, ‘This feeling that mummy is feeling, that you are also feeling, is some fear. I have a little bit of fear after your brother’s birth. Is there anything that you can show me about yours?’ Instantly I saw this image of a ‘woosh of water falling’ and fully body sensation of calm washed over me as my fear was taken away. Very similar to the experience of my son’s first communication with me. Like there was a vaccume above my head and all the stress was sucked away.
During the rest of my pregnancy when any fear surfaced I would call on this communication practice with my baby girl and I would see the exact same image. I would also be filled with calm and peace and any fears would be washed away instantly.
My images were later confirmed during her birth when after a blissful (yet intense towards the end) 4 hour labour, my waters broke and within minutes she was born. Exactly like the images she was showing me. This little divine being had my back as she made her way out into the world with so much ease, I didn’t even have to push once (a big contrast to having to pushing for almost 2 hours to help her brother arrive earth side). All I had to do was surrender. What more of a powerful and profound lesson to receive in life that to simply surrender.
LESSON #3 ‘LOOK HOW HIGH YOU CAN GO MUM’.
After my son’s birth being somewhat of an ‘awakening’ to my intuition and my eternal world within, it seemed as though one of my daughters lessons for me to was remember how high I could go energetically.
I would have to ground myself every day and had many a regular healing session to support me to ‘widen’ and ground my energy and throughout her pregnancy. It was initially a little scary as some of the high flying experiences were so high I thought I was going to leave my body and not be able to find it again. But with it came a huge lesson in the power of grounding and going within.
Through out my time being pregnant with my beautiful daughter I received pages and pages of downloads about the ‘Soul Sister Sessions’ and the ‘Soul Sister Retreat’ that I held back in 2016. I began taking these regular sessions when she was 6 months old and she gave me the insight to sink into my feminine and teach about the art of intuition and the power of sisterhood.
I received many other realisations about my path during this time and it was such a divine experience in being an open channel and surrendering to all my mind was holding onto. I was asked to surrender how I thought my birth would go, how my career would look and the tight constraints on how I needed life to be just to name a few.
