Baby Talk To Me - Spirit Baby Messages for the Journey to Motherhood with Alison Shaloe | E85

by Dr Ruth Allan | Released Mon 16 Oct 23

Alison Shaloe is a qualified midwife and lactation consultant and Havening trainer by trade, as well as an energy healer and baby whisperer and author of the book ‘Baby Talk to Me - Spirit Baby Messages for the Journey to Motherhood’

She supports women on their journeys to motherhood practically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Part of her mission is to the heal the emotional wounds of the mother and she uses various modalities to do this. She also facilitates women’s empowerment groups helping women to birth more of themselves

In this Episode 85 we talk about her journey to becoming a midwife. She discusses the importance of ensuring autonomy of the midwife so they can work with the mothers on their journey through pregnancy and into motherhood. She also shares how she overcame imposter syndrome and negative self talk to support women in overcoming their birthing trauma and breastfeeding challenges

We discuss the importance of setting up the right environment for a mother to give birth, as well as the right environment for your baby to grow. Alison discusses how birthing trauma and medical intervention that the mother doesn't expect can have a dramatic impact on their ability to breast feed, and how she supports her clients with Havening to release their birthing trauma and reconnect with their body

I share my personal birthing experience as well as my miscarriage, and we discuss the importance of spiritual connection between parent and child in utero as well as after birth

Alison goes on to discuss the importance of addressing any of your unmet needs as a child to avoid this being translated into adulthood and parenthood and offers her advice to any parent who is concerned that their child or themselves is struggling with birthing trauma

I loved this episode, as having experienced a miscarriage myself, as well as a traumatic birthing experience, I think it's so important that we acknowledge the journey that the mother's, fathers and babies go on as they grow in this world, as well as the spirit messages that babies share with us when they leave this world
