Episode 2: 

Do you need a healer? Are you the spiritual type or are you the hard scientific method by the books type? Well, this isn't your typical "woo-woo" shaman because does she have a pre-medicine background she brings in her personal human experience in her journey of preparing and having her baby. If you've always wondered about the history of healers and how they came to be and a glimpse of the story behind the authentic African Shaman, then that's only the tip of the iceberg. Listen in on what we dived into about "truth seekers," becoming a mom with endometriosis, and the raw truth about suffering.

Episode 4: 

What is the first step to recovery? Acknowledging the current circumstances. Facing our past can be hard, scary even. Trauma is often taboo in our society, but something we should actually discuss openly with one another. Join us as we talk with Sasha, founder of Realistic Parenting, as she shares the keys to recovering from traumatic pregnancies and births. Sasha opens up about her personal experience with a traumatic labor and how it impacted her transition into motherhood, and the online Pregnancy and Birth Trauma Healing coaching program she developed because of it. Listen closely to how Sasha points out the importance of checking in with yourself to see how you’re feeling and identifying where your emotions are stemming from so that you can begin taking your first steps to recovery.

Christine Miskinis is a Women’s Voice and Speaking Coach who focuses on teaching women how to tune-in to their inner voice to express their authentic voice in their lives.  She is the owner and founder of Rock it Out Woman.

Christine’s story began with healing her voice when she found out at age 24 that she had pre-cancerous cells growing from her stomach up into her esophagus from a lifetime of digestive issues.  She believes this was a direct result of not listening to her intuition, pushing her way through life and silencing her own voice in trying to be a successful woman. It wasn't until that moment in the doctor's office that she realized no one was going to “save” her, there was no magic “pill” to fix her, and that she was responsible for her life - Body, Mind and Spirit.  From there she went on to start her own business and follow her passion of supporting other women in speaking and giving transformational talks.
 

Today, Christine is focused on her Rock your Voice, Woman movement to ignite the Voices of empowered women to transform our world!
