Many of us experience deep, painful emotions around pelvic and menstrual health, some of us with the shame of infertility and others dealing with the emotional aloneness of being new mothers. I’ve been in all these situations at different times in my life and I can definitely relate.
Are you struggling with infertility yet putting on a brave face to congratulate a friend with her newborn, unable to share how you truly feel?
Are you a new mother feeling depressed and exhausted, hiding your challenges because you feel you have no right to complain to your friends now that you are a mom?
I get it! When we have the courage to open up to our reality and share it, we find compassion, hope, acceptance and real honest healing in all aspects of our lives. When we come together, we realize that we’re not so different after all. Whether we’re suffering from endometriosis, infertility, or are new mothers, we all at times experience pain, fatigue, depression and isolation.
When we stop fighting . . . pain, fatigue and depression, space is created where we can value our symptoms as our teachers. When we open up to listening to our body and work with it in softness, the body responds, calms down and symptoms often diminish. I’ve had the honour of witnessing exciting life-changing ‘aha’ moments as women realize how this all makes sense!
– This is the moment when self-healing begins.
– This is when we acknowledge that our bodies and our emotions are wise.
– This is when we find the courage to reconnect with our true selves and each other.
– This is when we regain our trust in listening to ourselves and each other, which we often lose after years of being told that what we feel is not real.
This is my soul space where I share my experiences and reflections through blogs, videos and courses about women’s health, happiness, spirituality, and all things magical. Whether you’re a woman with menstrual problems such as endometriosis, or infertility, a new mother or just interested in better well-being, welcome!
Here is an occasion to stop and connect to your own inner wisdom, your body’s ability to self heal. Along the way, you’ll be supported by me, and a community of women sharing the journey with you.
Yoga as a therapy is a complete, holistic and natural approach. I always adapt the practice to your specific needs. I offer a wide range of tools, such as Yoga movement and Restorative Yoga, breath and body awareness, mindfulness, written reflections, creativity, coaching, visualization and relaxation along with knowledge around diet and women history.
As a postpartum doula, my most important offering is to support the special bonding between you and your baby as well as that for the rest of the family. I mother the mother and I listen to what your needs are for you to best heal, enjoy and care for your new baby. I do what I can to make sure you feel cared for and supported.
Trine Mikkelsen became our post-partum doula during what was a very difficult period for my family. Trine was able to provide me with emotional support and practical advice that made me feel much less alone. She was also able to connect with and sooth my son (4 months at the time) in a way that was very intuitive and comfortable for me as a mother. She is very gifted at providing assistance in a wise, gentle and unobtrusive way. She was a godsend for us at that time and it has been lovely and enormously helpful to have her in our lives. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of support during the post-partum period!"

I hired Trine as my yoga therapist several months after the birth of my son. I didn't know what I needed except I knew I was feeling overwhelmed and disconnected from my body. When Trine arrived, she showed me what I needed: to be grounded, to accept who I am in this new and challenging role and to completely relax into myself as I was in that moment. I could feel myself softening, slowing down once she walked into my apartment. She has quality to her presence that quiets the noise inside yourself and guides you back to yourself each time. A joyous reunion! I enjoyed enormously our sessions together and asked her to continue on with me. She made an everlasting impression on me and my son."
Trine’s groundbreaking and compassionate approach in encouraging women to learn about their reproductive health is a boon for women of all ages, at all stages of their lives. Using the tools of mindfulness, meditation, visualization, reflection and yoga, Trine guides women on the path towards wholeness by empowering them with knowledge, and giving them tools to further understand and work with whatever challenges are facing them in achieving full and vibrant health. Bringing forth the wisdom of her own challenges with endometriosis, Trine facilitates with a combination of empirical knowledge, personal stories, and grounded spiritual practice. I attended Trine’s workshop, and during it Trine guided us through a visualization of our uterus, prompting participants to draw or write whatever came to mind. I drew a colorful and rich uterus with a beautiful and blooming pomegranate tree in the middle. A week later I found out that I was pregnant! I am now five months along in a healthy pregnancy, and I feel so grateful for the experience with Trine that prompted me to take all aspects of my life into my own hands. I am now reaping the benefits in a way that I never imagined possible!

Trine was an amazing support to me when I was on my journey towards giving birth to my third child. Going through those first fragile weeks after birth, with her guidance, I was able to establish a way for me to breastfeed for much longer this time around compared to my first two children. She helped me trust my own strength and find my own inner knowing. I went through such a great transformation and learned so much from this third baby, and Trine was of great help to me all the way. Now a year later I am still in a great healing process and Trine has become of great importance for me, as she is still part of my journey. She has helped me and guided me to hear my inner voice. I know I will keep turning to her for support as I step by step go further on my life path. I am deeply grateful for her insight, wisdom and the way she can “see” me and be with me without judgement."

Thank you Trine. My time with you helped me to understand how my creative energy and my approach to life directly relates to my physical body. Not only do I use this knowledge to bring focus to my life now, but I'm empowered to know that focusing my energy helps me calm and cool my body. You have led me to feel a real sense of agency over my life and my health. I can not thank you enough for your deep insights and wisdom.
