We discuss some topics that may be sensitive for some listeners.

Many mothers experience a trauma in life prior to having children. More specifically a sexual trauma. These experiences can sometimes come up and affect us in a way that we did not expect when we have kids.

Lindsay discusses her journey to find Joy after trauma. We talk about her inspirational path to healing and helping mothers, after going through harrowing life experiences. 

-She shares about her children and the experiences of the birth of her first child, the loss of her second child, her rainbow baby, Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) and Postpartum depression.

-She shares how the loss of her son made it necessary to deal with her past trauma of rape and attempted murder at the age of 16.

-The devastation of postpartum depression after having her rainbow baby.

- She is healing through yoga, writing, spiritual coaching and other supportive approaches, and is helping mothers find their own joy and healing.

-She is writing a memoir of her life experience, with the goal of helping other mothers and families. (Link to support getting the Memoir published below)

Hello! My name is Lindsay and I am a Motivational Speaker, Writer, Doula, Trauma Yoga Instructor, Birth Psychology Specialist and Joy Restoration/Health Coach for Mamas.

I wear many hats in the work that I do but my focus is helping to bring light back into women that promotes inner healing. I am the creator of my 7-Week therapeutic writing series, “Journal Back to Joy." Here in Connecticut, I also teach my JOYoga® series.

They are yoga classes for women that are designed to prepare for Motherhood, mind, body and spirit, clear energy and restore JOY!

I spend most of my time taking care of my two young blondie daughters, Lillian and Layla, being a wife to my Irish (brogue and all) husband Jason, and all that motherhood/wifely duties entail.

I am also a mother to my angel son above, Joseph, whose love shines through me every day. My greatest passion is writing to inspire through my heart and through God. I am currently working on my first book, an inspirational memoir, entitled "Just Be" so stay tuned!
