Somatic Pelvic Care
What Is Somatic Pelvic Care?
Somatic Pelvic Care for pregnancy, postpartum and pelvic pain :
Healing the most intimate parts of you requires intimate and intentional care.
Somatic Pelvic Care uses the power of your nervous system to activate your deepest inner resources to heal your pelvic health challenges from the within.
While most traditional approaches to healing the body and pelvic pain focus on the external solutions for your health and wellbeing, at Inner Rhythm Wellness we know that health, healing, and vitality is an inside job.
By blending hands on/in pelvic care, body work, and specific movement based exercises with somatic based mind-body tools to integrate the emotional and energetic imprints of past pelvic, sexual, birth, or generational trauma, you will be guided in unwinding the often unseen internal root cause of your pelvic health challenges.
What it includes:
Birth Story Alchemy looks like:
2 hour Birth Story Alchemy session (in person or virtual): In this session you will be gently guided into the heart of your subconscious mind, to uncover the part of your birth experience that feels most unresolved. From there you will be led in somatic based approaches to release trapped energy from the body, brain rewiring strategies, and solution focused dialogue to release stored trauma in the body and literally begin rewiring your brain to view your birth though the lens of compassion vs. pain. You will leave with more awareness, acceptance, and compassion toward your story, yourself, and others.
75 minute virtual integration session within 2 weeks later (in person or virtual): in this session we will either dive into another aspect of your birth story or continue to integrate the wisdom and learnings that came through in the initial session.
Virtual Support: You will have access to me for virtual support (voice/text via Voxer app) for the two weeks between session. This is like having your support team and a cheerleader in your back pocket!

-The Story of Inanna, as told in Birth Story Medicine by Pam England
My Birth Story listening session with Tara made me feel heard and affirmed. She gently guided me to the center of my experience and gave me new tools to work with it in my healing. Before I was looking for a "do over" in regards of my birth and questioning the decisions I made. After our session, I have a deeper sense of where my self-doubts and feelings about my birth experience come from and a way to work with them. I feel more centered.
I went into my birth story session with Tara not knowing what to expect. Within seconds, I was crying and releasing emotion I had no idea I was carrying around with me on a daily basis. Tara stayed present and kept me grounded throughout the session. By the end of it, I had processed through so much and was able to walk away with actionable steps to improve my relationship with my daughter and myself. I would definitely recommend a session for anyone who has been through a birthing experience that wasn’t what they hoped it would be!
Before our session I was having lots of postpartum anxiety and the feeling of "I am I not doing enough for my daughter". Tara made me feel comfortable throughout the session, I was a little nervous before because I don’t like opening up and we hadn’t met but I felt comfortable and listened to. She gave me a few action items to leave with that have changed my day to day for the better and how I show up for my daughter. I am also putting less pressure on myself and have less worry/ anxiety about household chores and trying to fit a million things into each and every day.
