Push Counseling & Coaching


So honored to be featured on Push Counseling & Coaching for Black History Month!

Here we go!! Our first business is unique, NEEDED, and so in line with focusing on a healthy parent and not just a healthy baby. Check out what Yvette of Eve Bloom Box has to say!!

I’m Eve the doula! Founder of EVE Birth Services, creator of EVE Bloom Box!

EVE Bloom Box includes everything mama needs to help reduce the pain and the mess! It's a reminder to be gentle with yourself and take time to love on yourself and HEAL from the journey of pregnancy and childbirth.

When a new baby comes into the world, everybody seems to forget about mama. The Bloom Box is a gift to help you remember mama, and all of the hard work she has done bringing her baby earth side!

As a doula my passion is to help mamas have trauma free empowering & victorious births! #makingblackhistory #shopblackbusiness #blacklivesmatter
I'd like to share a rather unusual and free aces prevention resource...parenting tips bumper stickers! Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo, CA nonprofit, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to schools, businesses, organizations, clinics, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times!

Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting and prevent child abuse five, ten, twenty, fifty years down the road. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations begin and often a phone is used to take a photo of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see!

Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to request this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.
Super excited to share that I will now be sharing office space with Push Counseling & Coaching !!! I feel so fancy lol! A doula with a downtown office ✨✨✨

I will now be holding doula sessions and accepting consultation appointments in person on a limited basis on Monday’s!!! Email me if you’d like more information! [email protected]

Yes, I’m a black woman who rocks 💛✊🏾! #makingblackhistory

Thank you Push Counseling & Coaching
Up next on “what’s the doc reading” is this gem about #trauma .

People frequently ask me why, as a chiropractor, I incorporate a focus on trauma in my practice. I’ve been asked “why does it even matter?” and “can you treat ptsd?” and everything in between.

So let’s dig into that a bit, because yes, it does matter, and no, I absolutely do not treat ptsd.

It matters because, as this book illustrates, the body literally keeps the score.
Whether your trauma stems from systemic traumas like racism, transphobia, or misogyny, or from personal trauma like child abuse, sexual assault, or a traumatic birth - or any other trauma or combination of traumas - it’s important for you to have trauma-informed providers on your team.

As a provider, knowing how trauma can impact the bodies of the people I care for is crucial to providing adequate care.
Your body can’t heal fully if you don’t feel safe.
My job as a provider is to make this space as safe as possible for you.

To address in more detail the “does chiropractic treat ptsd?” question, the answer is no.
That should always be managed by a qualified mental health professional.
That’s why collaboration with mental health professionals like the folks at Push Counseling & Coaching is so important to us.
That being said, bodywork *can* be a tool that some folks use in their trauma-healing process, but that decision is always between the patient and their mental health provider.

I’m here to provide safe, gentle, and effective chiropractic care to my patients, while acknowledging the complex stories their bodies have navigated and continue to navigate.

Another reason why we practice trauma-informed care - giving you the option to disclose as much or as little about your history as you need in order to feel safe.
Also why we are so appreciative of the amazing mental health professionals we work with at Push Counseling & Coaching!

Supporting birthing people, women, and mothers to and through parenthood and major life transitions. When I found out I was pregnant, I went through a roller coaster emotions ranging from sad to excited to scared.Pregnancy did not start off magical as most women experience in the first trimester.

However, as I progressed into the second trimester, I realized that my anxiety and depression in the beginning had not subsided. I asked friends and family if what I was feeling was common, and I was not encouraged by what I heard. I felt shame in being depressed while pregnant, not to mention the shame I felt for not having the perfect pregnancy. I went through much of my pregnancy alone and not

If infertility is part of your story, we want you to know that you are seen, you matter, and we support you.

We see you navigating this difficulty that you didn’t choose, that no one would choose.

Your sadness and anger are valid. Everything you are feeling is valid. Your emotions and experiences matter.

We support you in showing kindness to yourself this week and every day, extra on the toughest days. We care about you. You deserve care and support.

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week. 1 in 8 couples are impacted by infertility. Men, women, those with children, those without. It can be a silent, lonely experience. If you or someone you know is struggling through their infertility journey, know that it is not your fault. Take a look at https://www.resolve.org for more on National Infertility Week


What an incredible show of strength and determination in labor and self-advocacy!! Notice near the end, she knew her body and her limits and set the boundary to go to the hospital and birth her baby. 💪🏻

Around 2 in the morning on Saturday, Erin Maye Quade started going into labor.⁠

It was tough timing. This was going to be a big day. In just a few hours, Maye Quade was supposed to pull everything together and give a major speech.⁠

Maye Quade, 36, was running for state Senate, but she first needed to win the endorsement of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party to be her party’s nominee.⁠

Mitchell Walstad, Maye Quade’s campaign manager, told HuffPost that they asked convention organizers to move up the timing of the endorsement for their race. They reached an agreement to do so, but only after “pushback,” he said.⁠

“We went into the day not sure if she was even going to make it to the convention,” Walstad added. “She came and ― we had a little personal campaign room. So she’d go in there to have her contractions. And then she was like, ‘Great, I have 15 or 20 minutes until my next contraction happens. So I’ll go out and talk to delegates during this time trying to push through it.’”⁠

Remarkably, Maye Quade pushed through for hours ― and video of her speech shows just how tough it was. Toward the end of her remarks, Maye Quade had to stop and lean over as she had contractions. The crowd cheered in support.⁠

Maye Quade lasted through the first round of ballots, where delegates vote on who will be the nominee for the DFL (Minnesota’s version of the Democratic Party). Her opponent received the most votes that round (91-74, according to local TV station Fox 9) ― although not with enough to win outright ― but Maye Quade decided that she needed to go to the hospital and couldn’t do the one-on-one work needed ― personal conversations to persuade delegates to come to her side ― to succeed in the second round. So she withdrew from contention... but should organizers have postponed the convention?⁠

Motherhood is not always easy. Allow yourself to experience every emotion fully.



Repost from @transparentblackgirl

Eternal gratitude to the Black mother and her fortitude to carry the next generation earth side. This , we’re honoring the Black women who live out loud and show us that we deserve the best lives we can possibly have, while uplifting the women who educate on Black maternal health daily. There is no true exploration of wellness for Black women, without the discovery of womb wellness and maternal health. More Black mothers living lives filled with wellness, ease, wealth (in every way possible), and love. 📷 @jalisaevaughn

In the US, Black Mamas are 3-4 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white mamas.⁣⁠
Though there is no clear explanation as to why this is the case, we suspect it’s a combo of things including:⁣⁠
✅ Institutional racism in society & the health care system⁣⁣⁠
✅ Black women’s increased susceptibility to certain health conditions that can affect morbidities in pregnancy⁣⁣⁠
✅ Lack of access to quality prenatal care - significant underinvestment in family support and health care programs contribute to the alarming trends in maternal health⁣⁣⁠
Structural racism in health care means that Black Mamas often receive poorer quality care. It means denial of care when they seek help for pain and/or providers fail to treat them with dignity & respect.⁣⁠
These stressors & the cumulative experience of racism trigger a chain of biological processes, known as weathering, which undermines physical and mental health (& may explain why certain health conditions exist in the black community!)⁣⁠
❓What can we do in healthcare?⁣⁣⁠
✅ Strengthen existing health programs & support reproductive health care.⁣⁣⁠
✅ Offer black women tools to navigate the health care system: increase range of birth options, expand access to midwives & doulas, halt the overuse of C-sections in the US, & more access to childbirth education⁣⁣⁠
✅ Train providers to address racism in healthcare and build a more diverse health care workforce⁣⁣⁠
✅ Address maternal mental health & increase support for families before & after birth⁣⁣⁠
❓What can you do as a black mama?⁣⁣⁠
✅ Switch practices (if able) if you feel you aren’t being treated right!⁣⁣⁠
✅ Use your voice, continue to advocate for yourself during pregnancy & birth!⁣⁣⁠
✅ Take a birth course! ⁣⁣⁠
✅ Hire a doula or seek out a doula-volunteer program. Doulas increase patient satisfaction rates, lower stress, AND decrease c-sections⁣⁣⁠
Thank you to @blackmamasmatter for organizing Black Maternal Health Week.⁣⁠
In an effort to amplify the voices of Black Mamas in the MLN community, I invite you to share your stories below 💜


Trigger warning ⚠️ SA

***Trigger warning: sexual assault

This month is sexual assault prevention/ awareness month. It is NEVER the victim’s fault, but so often the victim is blamed in one way or another. Although this issue is difficult to talk through, healing is so necessary to being able to find hope and recovery. We want to be there for you, and have incredible counselors to help walk you through this long road. And for those that are not survivors, we encourage you to stand in solidarity and advocacy to stop victim blaming and start more conversations about helping survivors find healing.

Happy ! 🏳️‍⚧It’s more important than ever to celebrate our trans siblings as state lawmakers take up anti-trans bills at an alarming rate. Today and every day, trans people belong in Texas. Anti-trans bills don’t.

Trans community, every day of the year:
We see you. We support you. We love you.

Sometimes, life can feel overwhelming.⁠

Stress is something that we cannot avoid, especially in this fast-paced world we live in.⁠

Although it is part of our daily lives, we can still keep ourselves healthy by practicing stress management.⁠

Stress management includes exercises that can keep our body and mind resilient despite the challenges-- it helps us keep a healthy lifestyle and promote our well being. 😌⁠

About Push

So many people talk about how beautiful pregnancy, birth and motherhood are, but few tell us that it can be the hardest thing we’ve ever done. We don’t have as many conversations about not feeling like you’re doing everything perfectly and it creates the expectation that we have to be like the parent that seems to have it all. The truth is, none of us know what we are doing, it’s okay to not be okay, and comparison robs us of our value as a person and a parent.

One in five birthing people struggle during pregnancy or postpartum with depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues that impact their way of life. That’s not to mention the emotional toll of infertility, the immense pain of pregnancy and infant loss, and the roller coaster that comes with raising children into adults. Although this feeling is lonely, you do not have to do this alone. Reaching out for support is not weakness, but it is strength. You are in the right place. Push is a practice of women that are passionate about supporting mothers because of our journeys serving moms and becoming moms in one way or another.

Even if you go no further, we are proud of you for taking the first step just to see what resources exist. It feels overwhelming and maybe scary, but our job is to simply help remind you of your value as an individual and your worth as a mother. We want you to feel you’re in a place of no judgment and no shame. Your feelings matter and although you’re not okay now, we look forward to walking with you on journey from surviving to thriving. You can do this!
