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.
Do you want to feel honoured and seen for all that you are?
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 rite of passage.
Sacred Pregnancy Retreat Weekends
Māmā Blessings - an alternative to a baby shower to empower birthing people
Nurtured Postpartum Workshops - plan and prepare for postpartum (the 4th trimester and beyond) which can reduce your risk of postpartum depression, anxiety or other postnatal mental health challenges
Empowered Parenthood Workshops - 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
Birth affirmation cards & gift vouchers
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?
Beyond birth, parenting is a journey which can be full of wonder and magic and also relentless and overwhelming.
Please get in touch if you would like support with helping your child to:
Develop healthy ways to express emotions
Respond empathetically and compassionately towards their siblings and others
Navigate big changes like a new sibling, moving house, or a change in family dynamics
Sleep more peacefully without sleep training
Cooperate willingly without the use of rewards and punishments (non punitive or democratic discipline)
Heal from stress and trauma and
Foster a strong connection with you and within themselves
There is also an equal balance of attention on you - your needs, your stories and your healing. To have your feelings heard and held and being met with deep compassion and understanding.
All of this can be done in ways that honour and respect everyone's needs (including yours!) and leads to long-term family connection and cohesion.
