How you've been feeling may not be your normal, but it is normal for postpartum women.

Why start with coaching?

 

Hormones and low sleep play a role. But even when those are balancing out, many moms still feel stuck, low, perpetually overwhelmed, anxious, etc. postpartum. 

Here are some mental-emotional things that are happening postpartum that coaching can help you directly address and feel better:

  • Identity Loss
  • Freeze Response
  • New and More Intense Emotions

Identity Loss

Your identity shifts drastically when you become a mom, and for every child after your first, it changes all over again. With identity shift, grieving often needs to happen. When it doesn't... it can build up and hit you even harder after your next baby. (I don't mean to scare, just saying what I'm seeing.)

Freeze Response

Your nervous system can go into 'survival mode', drawing heavily on adrenaline and cortisol to operate. This can physically deplete you and make easy things feel HARD. It can also cause sleep and mental health symptoms (booooo!). My body-centered coaching will teach you tools to regulate your nervous system so you're operating from a more calm, focused and sustainable place.

Bigger Emotions

New, and/or Bigger, More Intense Emotions. As you have probably felt, whether you have a diagnosis or not, postpartum can be...intense. As emotions get bigger, your skills and tools to feel them, process them and move on from them need to get bigger too. My coaching program not only teaches you the steps to work with and through intense emotions (paralyzing overwhelm, anxiety, fear, rage, etc.), but you get tons of application/practice opportunities and feedback so it all sticks (like nursing pads. yay.)


What is this program?

 

Better than ‘Normal Again is a 12-week program for women at any stage postpartum (one day, one year or one decade) that blends clear-thinking coaching tools with the application of processing emotions in your body. Our goal is to get you feeling like you can calm your body down when you get worked up or off-kilter emotionally, that you can calm and redirect your mind when your thoughts seem to be overtaking you or worrisome, and that you will be able to identify some of the root cause of anxiety: stored traumas in your nervous system. It’s holistic, gentle and effective.

I found Lizzie when I was two months postpartum with my second baby.

During that time I felt the weight of responsibility of not just one, but now two small humans to help guide throughout life.

I wanted to give them the best gift I could think of: good mental health and resiliency. But I knew I couldn’t teach something that I hadn’t mastered. I knew Lizzie was the one who could help after our first consultation.

During our sessions she not only helped me learn tools for resiliency but she helped me think about things in my past in a more productive way.

She helped me navigate struggles I was having such as sleep deprivation, buffers, relationships, my motherhood, money, going back to my full time job, and last but not least: postpartum depression.

I learned tools that continue to benefit my life! The money I spent on coaching with Lizzie was the best money I’ve EVER spent on myself. Thank you Lizzie!

Week 2 Live Call
Intro to Healing: Strengthening Belief + Watch Out for Urgency

We take a look at what you’ve already been trying and what’s not working. Where you’re stuck. We identify any rush, desperation, urgency or discouragement and work on alchemizing those to hope, presence with the healing process and belief.

Week 3 Live Call
Intro to Healing: Holding the Space + Descending to the Heart

We build on our newly set foundation for healing and delve into the sensations of anxiety, what it looks like to “be in your body”, how to leave the mind and enter into the body, and how to understand and tune into the body’s sensations. We practice applying.

Week 4 Live Call
Calming your Body: The Why and How

We review how application week went, get into the nitty gritty of applying so you really get experience and help calming your anxiety, no matter the time of day or circumstances. You also learn about how sometimes trying to be calm isn’t the right answer.

Week 5 Live Call
Connecting Mind and Body: Practical Self-Regulating Techniques

I teach you some of my most tried-and-true grounding techniques. Since everyone is different, I give you many to choose from and try for your body and nervous system. You have a chance to practice and ask questions, get coaching.

Week 6 Live Call
Calm your Mind: Observing Thought, Noticing Patterns, The Model

I give you a tool that acts as a cross section observation of any thought, feeling, behaviors, choices or results you are noticing in yourself. Powerful tool. We practice becoming aware of our most common anxiety thoughts.

Week 7 Live Call
Calm your Mind: The Two Layers of Anxiety + Balancing your Imagination

We learned to de-escalate anxiety in the body, and now we are learning how to deconstruct it in our mind. We break anxiety into two layers and we learn how to stop resisting it (and therefore escalating it), and to instead balance it with calm and de-escalate your imagination’s conjurings.

Felica

After having postpartum depression twice, I was worried I’d run into it again. A couple weeks into the move, I knew that if I didn’t get help I was not going to be okay. I could feel myself slipping down into that pit.


Enter: Lizzie. I love working with Lizzie because she’s so real, and she gets it. Never in my life have I stuck up for, trusted, or fully valued myself until I found coaching. It has allowed me to observe my own mind. To own my power to create the life I want. To be the mom, wife, friend I want to be without shame. Coaching has opened up a world of possibility for me! Investing in myself is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

What We Cover In Phase Two

Week 8 Live Call
Application Week

No live call this week, in order to emphasize making space to practice and apply the tools learned. This week is your week to catch up on call replays you may have missed, to catch up or review any course work, to do any worksheets you haven’t done. To do meditations, listen to the private podcast. To do your monthly evaluation and self-reflect, reset your intentions.

Week 9 Live Call
Calm your Life: The Subconscious Mind, Trauma and the Nervous System

Now that our body and mind are connected, we are more confident in our ability to calm ourselves mid-anxiety, we are going to learn about one of the root causes of anxiety: trauma.

Week 10 Live Call
The Self Healing Session, When to Seek Conjunctive Help/Therapy

Coaching is not therapy, and sometimes therapy is needed and useful in addition to coaching. We learn about when to make this call, as well as how to walk through past trauma without reliving it and in a way that heals our nervous system.

Amanda

My techniques weren’t working, but the coaching I received from Lizzie helped me tackle each day as I overcame preconceived notions of what a ‘mother’ was supposed to be.


In these past several months, I’ve become a more emotionally available mother and wife, decreased my anxiety, and have even been promoted! If you think you have to do it all, or if the mountain looks too tall, I would highly encourage you to reach out to Lizzie for support.
