Kia ora! Hello!
My name is Kirsty Fernandes and I'm so glad that you're here!
You can learn more about me here.
In the meantime, take a look around and let me know if you feel called to be supported by me in your pregnancy, postpartum or parenting journey.
Do you want to feel honoured and seen for all that you are and have gone through as a Māmā?
Our fertility, pregnancy and birth journeys are some of the biggest events in our lives - it requires us to be open, vulnerable and raw.
I will hold space for you to feel supported, seen and heard as you navigate this huge transition and rite of passage.
Sacred Pregnancy Retreat Weekends - to reflect inwards and connect with your growing baby
Birth Affirmation cards - to foster a positive mindset through labour and birth
Nurtured Postpartum Workshops - plan and prepare for your holistic recovering in postpartum (the 4th trimester and beyond) which can speed up your recovery and reduce your risk of postpartum depression, anxiety or other postnatal mental health challenges
Empowered Parenthood Workshop - preparing and supporting your older children for the arrival of their sibling
Māmā Honouring Ceremonies - group, individual and custom ceremonies to mark transition and transformation
Gift vouchers for the ultimate gift for a Māmā
Whether you are a first time or seventh time Māmā, became a Māmā 2 days ago or 25 years ago, or you have a woman in your life that you would like to honour, I am here for you.

Do you want to create more connection and cooperation in your family?

Navigate big changes like a new sibling, moving house, or a change in family dynamics

Manage sibling rivalry or conflict with effective tools

Help your children heal from stress and trauma and
Foster a strong connection with yourself, your children and within your family
Balance the needs of everyone in the family (yes, including yours!)
There is an equal balance of attention on you - your needs, your story and your healing. To have your feelings heard and held and be met with deep compassion and understanding.
