Do you feel permanently rearranged since you’ve given birth?
You’re not alone.
I know you see all the magazine pictures of women losing baby weight in three weeks. I know your neighbor is at the park with her newborn who’s nine days old. I know you had NO idea what this was going to be like.
The truth is that we are ALL altered by childbirth. Irrevocably, permanently altered.
This could be cause for celebration. Our birthright and shortcut to spiritual liberation! If it weren’t so darn challenging.
Was your birth traumatic?
Do you feel injured?
Is sex painful or not an option?
Was your six week visit cursory and inadequate?
Do you have: Hemorrhoids? Prolapse? Scar Tissue? C-section?
Maybe things just aren’t quite right.
Well, I have some good news. You don’t have to just tolerate the way you are feeling.
I can guide you through the process of putting the pieces back together. You have options.
Through a combination of hands-on structural work, scar tissue remediation, and Somatic Experiencing work, you can feel like yourself again.
Each woman’s healing process is different (depending on the source of the discomfort and layers that need healing). Together, we will design a customized healing program based on your specific needs.
It’s worth it to prioritize your own health and your sexual wellbeing as a mother and a woman. For some conditions like diastasis (separation of the abdominal wall) and prolapse, the longer you wait, the worse it gets.
Reclaim your full vitality so that you can return to the activities you love and have the passionate intimate life you deserve.
“If you’ve ever had a baby, go to Kimberly Johnson. 3 years after my son was born, I discovered that I had a birth injury. I raced to my ob-gyn, only to be told that nothing can be done—exercises won’t work and when things get worse, surgery would be the only option. I was not ready to be on a slow path of degeneration, and thankfully I found Kimberly.
My first session was a revelation. She went through my entire birth story to find out what might have happened. With a remarkable breadth of knowledge, intellect, and ability to problem solve, Kimberly noticed things that my ob-gyn and doula had both overlooked. She then proceeded to start an entire rehabilitation: removing scar tissue, getting things back into proper position and alignment, reinvigorating nerves, addressing psychological blocks, dietary recommendations, and yes, exercises. She didn’t just try to fix the injury, but everything that might be amiss from the transition to motherhood. And she did it all with gentleness, compassion, and strength. Three sessions later, my physical issues are healing, my pelvic floor feels stronger, and on the whole, I feel better than I did before giving birth.
These sessions also made me realize that the work Kimberly does is not just important, but absolutely critical for women’s health. Our postnatal protocol is stuck in the Victorian era. It does exactly nothing for women after childbirth beyond the life threatening. We’re told to ignore our bodies, despite the major trauma of birth, grin and bear it and eventually things will return to normal. If they don’t (and they usually don’t), well that’s the price of motherhood. Kimberly is almost single-handedly trying to change this backwards perspective, and show that all women require proper postnatal information and care. I wish that every mother could have an appointment with Kimberly to receive that care and much, much more.”
