Manifesting your Desired Childbirth

In this episode, I speak with Mindset Pregnancy Coach, Shirley McGowan King. She is a woman of many talents. She is a Spiritual Counselor as well as the Founder of Mom-to-be Sisterhood. Through her own experiences of becoming a mom, she shares her tremendous wisdom and intuition in supporting other women to have the pregnancy and birthing experience they dream of. Bio: Hi, my name is Shirley McGowan King. I am a mompreneur, I am married and have 2 young children,1 and 4-years-old. I am half American and half Italian. I was born in Germany and was lucky to grow up three lingual. I am currently based in London, UK. I have created Mom to be Sisterhood because during my first pregnancy I noticed a lack of love and attention to detail during the care that I received from various professionals. As a consequence, I developed PND (Postnatal Depression). I was angry and resentful towards them. I couldn't understand why I had the negative experience when I wrote my birth plan and made everyone aware of my past and therefore the danger of developing PND. One day, I found myself thinking that someone has to do something about it and empower women to know their rights and be supported with the upmost care and love. That's how slowly but surely Mom To Be Sisterhood came to life. Today I'm supporting women across the world going from being anxious about their upcoming childbirth to feeling truly empowered, confident and nurtured at childbirth and beyond. This course that I am starting on the 21st February 2021 is about learning how to visualise and manifest your desired birth. It might sound impossible to you to have the control over your childbirth experience but the contrary is the case when you follow the method, I have used for my second childbirth experience. I was very scared when I found out I was pregnant for the second time and I had gone through this experience again. But it didn’t last long because I started the process of applying everything that I teach inside Mom To Be Sisterhood. Very soon I was able to enjoy my pregnancy and really look forward to meeting my baby girl knowing that I will be absolutely fine. In this course ‘Visualize & Manifest your Desired Childbirth’ I will teach you the method that I have used to manifest my desired child birth and transform myself to a powerful woman who created an amazing atmosphere around her at the hospital. It is so important for women to feel safe and taken good care of when they put their health and that of their unborn babies in other people’s hands. I show them how they can create that for themselves. The power is within us, we just need sometimes a little bit of help to recognise that and activate it. This has become my life’s purpose: Supporting pregnant women in their 3rd trimester to visualise and manifest their desired childbirth so that they can experience an empowered, nurtured and safe childbirth without fear, worries and the feeling of being out of control by using the universal laws.

Have the Relationship You Want

Transformational Relationship Coach Ana Ruiz takes on a deep dive into the root causes of failed relationships and what are some of the tools we need to attract a fulfilling relationship but also make it long-lasting. Who is Anna Ruiz? I empower couples and individuals to have fulfilling and long-lasting relationships. Since I was very young I watched my parents fight often. I remember feeling scared and helpless. I was 14 years old when they went through a very rough divorce. I created a story in my head that marriage is painful and non-stop conflict. Years of failed relationships and a longing for a healthy long-term committed relationship are the main reasons why one day I decided to seek help. I became a student of intimate relationships, psychology, attachment theory, neurobiology and eventually became a Relationship Coach certified to work with couples and individuals. I also found real love with a great man and we’ve been in a committed growth-oriented relationship for years. My relationship is a source of strength, support and inspiration to continue doing this work and live my life’s purpose by serving humanity. In my years working with couples and individuals, I’ve learned that most relationship issues are caused by the combination of one or more of the following factors: unhealed childhood wounds, unresolved current and/or previous relationship hurts, not knowing how to resolve conflict, and missing relationship tools or skills. I can help you with all of the above so you can have the relationship you want.

Farm Girl Fearing to Farm Girl Leading

In this episode, we have the incomparable Anessa Collins, She EO 1.0, a Leadership Coach for high achieving women. She has been empowering women into authentic leadership for over 14 years. This is her story: I’ve been where you are and felt the disconnect between being a successful leader and being myself. For so many years, I thought I needed to conform to succeed. Be quiet, be loud, be pretty, be perfect, follow the rules. Along the way, I gradually forgot who I was and this minimized my impact. On the outside, I checked all the success boxes (money, prestige, status). On the inside, I was unfulfilled, lost and misguided. I was a Farm-Girl Fearing. At 37, following years in corporate America, I embarked on a journey to rediscover myself, what made me tick, and what made me, special. I dove into the elements required for real change: mindset, habits and goal alignment. I leveraged 15 years of consulting where I had become an expert at helping professionals move through change. After a bit of hard work, I found myself and anchored my leadership as a SheEO. In 2008, I launched a thriving coaching practice dedicated to women and their health. During this time, I discovered many of my clients had lost themselves in the same shuffle. They were having an impact but wanted more. Getting more meant finding themselves and anchoring there. I was a Farm Girl Rising. Over and over again, I witnessed women reclaim themselves and create their own type of leadership firmly anchored in being authentically themselves. Deep work takes digging, incremental change, practice and real action, but you don’t have to do it alone. I am a SheEO. I am a storyteller. I am a woman leading women down a path I know well. My name is Anessa and I am a Farm Girl Leading. www.anessacollinscoaching.com

A New Beginning Post Cancer

Kristen Wood Ferullo is the owner of K-FIT Studio in Peabody, where she is also a resident. The fitness studio is very unique in its industry because it offers a variety of classes that appeal to the senior population. Kristen has been an ACE certified personal trainer since 2004, and a licensed physical therapy assistant since 2014. Kristen’s love for fitness only began during the early years of 2000. After battling weight her entire life, and becoming very overweight in her college years, she had finally decided to make a lifestyle change. That lifestyle change overtime became her career. After a breast cancer diagnosis in 2010, Kristen’s life had been changed, but her passion for health and fitness just grew even stronger. Her spirit and enthusiasm for fitness were very apparent throughout her cancer treatment. She believed exercise saved her life, and she wanted to continue to share her story with the hope of inspiring others. Not knowing just how she would do this, her life journey led her to the present day as being the K-FIT Studio owner.
