Love and let love in.

This journey I have been on this last year has been daunting to say the least. I have endless amazing days like all of us. I love my boys and the smiles that dance across their faces. I love even when we argue in the morning to get ready and to eat their breakfast.
A few weeks ago dreams began to form for me. A ten year struggle with the idea of nursing school is finally over, it never felt right or worth fighting for. Realistically I love teaching HypnoBirthing, I love being honest with a couple about their fears of parenting and birth. I know the quiet that happens in the first several years of parenting, the expectations that we can’t quite express. The flustered brain that hasn’t had 8 peaceful hours of sleep in who knows how long. Or the anxiety of a play date or a shopping trip with little ones. I know it all too well the image that a mother has.
I believe that families needs so much more love than any of us give them.
I believe strangers should help a mother as she checks out her groceries, smile and play pickaboo. I believe we should give genuine compliments to each other. Give ones that people don’t expect like “when I met your family you all glowed love.”
My dream is develop a place where families can learn to love one another openly and honestly. I would love to teach full time and have a space to do it in all the time. I would love to gather young families to teach one another. I hope to go back to school and pursue my dreams and develop a family therapy practice that is centered around wellness and joy.

About Kate Sullivan

I have been teaching HypnoBirthing and attending births as a HypnoBirthing Labor Companion since 2008. My passion comes from empowering every family, whether it is a quick inquiry to learn more or a client that I joyfully spend hours counseling with HypnoBirthing or rushing off to a birth at 2 in the morning. I want to teach you how to trust yourself, your body and give your partner those same tools so that you can begin your journey as parents with confidence.
