Clearing Your Child’s Birth Energy After a C-Section

The birth of a child is a beautiful experience. But it can also be traumatic for both mom and baby, especially when it’s a C-Section birth.

That pattern of trauma can replay over and over in your relationship with your child unless you clear that energy first. Why wouldn’t you? It’s so easy. I’ll show you how.

What you can learn from Katie Claire

When my granddaughter Katie Claire was born earlier this year, there were complications that led to my daughter Anne having an emergency C-Section.

We lovingly said later that Katie arrived in this world true to her Type 3 nature—intense and swiftly moving many people into action. (You can read about Katie’s birth story on Anne’s blog.)

But then Anne started to notice that Katie, even at even just a few months old, was expressing and continuing to replay that traumatic birth energy in a panicked way.

Watch the video to find out what messages were behind Katie’s overreacting and panic. and how to clear the traumatic birth energy by doing a proxy clearing for babies.

What did you take away from this video? How do you see your or your child’s birth energy playing out in life? Share your comments with me below.

More support for clearing your child’s birth energy

Even if you haven’t had a C-Section, you can—and should—clear your child’s birth energy.

It doesn’t matter how old your kids are, the energy of their birth can often influence their lives in negative ways.


When you do this, you’ll begin to notice profound changes in how your child relates to you and their world. When you clear any traumatic birth energy, it frees up your child to live healthy and true to their nature, unhindered by blocked energy or old patterns.

God Bless You,

    It amazes me how you always seem to know what to post when I need it most. Thank you for this.

    I have a double c-section/hysterectomy coming up in January. I will refer to this following the ordeal. I don’t know who will need emotional clearing more, me or my baby.

    • Carol H.

      May your experience be smooth, efficient, just right for you and your baby. Rather than setting it up as an ‘ordeal,’ maybe imagine all going well with best possible outcomes for all.

    This was great! I forwarded it to my T2 sister that I felt could benefit after her c-section she had earlier this year. Though I have not had c-sections I look forward to reflecting on the delivery of my own 4 children. Surely there is something that could use healing. I recall my first: He’s t2. I remembered during this video how emotional and scared I was anticipating the unknown. My son had some minor issues that prevented my husband and I from holding him for the first few hours. Then the nurse handed him to my mother before I ever even held him. I sadly still hold anger over that. It dawned on me during this video that purhaps I hovered over and coddled him because of what I viewed as traumatic.

    I am so glad I watched this. My son was born by C -Section 4 years ago and he seems to do act similar, with everything being a panic or almost painful, even when he wants a snack or something simple. Our experience was he had to be delivered within an hour or we both were going to die because I had HELLP Syndrome. We were transported to the hospital directly from a Dr. Appointment and in the room, when they were telling me we were going to die if the C-Section didn’t happen were two of my other children. They were crying and the whole thing was so upsetting. He is wonderful now after spending 3 months in the NICU and he almost died once. The entire experience was horrible and frightening for everyone. Just a C-Section alone without the major issues that come along with it, was so bizarre. They should probably all have a clearing from the event. Thanks Carol and Anne!

    Great video! I think my fiance who was born with forceps could really benefit from this. Loved how Katie spit up and released all that fear energy. Perfect timing.

    Wow, this was awesome. I was lucky enough to have had a natural birth with my daughter, but wasn’t in a wholly supportive environment. The nurse thought I was crazy for not getting an epidural and even crazier when I wanted to stand up to help get her ready for delivery. (She had been a nurse for more than ten years she said and never saw anything like it.) She kept pressing on my belly with the external monitor (I absolutely flat out refused the one they wanted to bolt into her head) and at the time I didn’t really realize it (this was my first and only) she was causing contractions to try and speed things along. As a result the contractions weren’t as strong so they were less effective, so the timing was probably the same. So although My daughter and I were more than happy to go at our pace, the nurse was trying to hurry us along. Where I see this play out with her is when she is getting ready for school! She needs constant prodding and it drives me bananas. I’m a T3/1.

    I luckily did not have to have a c section but with my 3rd child who is also a type 3, my labor went really fast and I almost had her on the way to the hospital. But it was not traumatic for me, she was just coming in a swift way true to her nature. I think it was a great experience, but I am also a type 3 and after she was born I felt great ready to go get back to work in the yard- which I did the day we got home from the hospital. After watching this video it helped me realize why her labor went the way it did and why I felt like it was such a great experience. Thank you for posting!

    Wow. I have a lot of work to do for myself and my two children. First, I’m a twin who was born a little bit early, and the new doctor in a different hospital from my mother’s plan had to be called back because I was the unexpected second baby. The really appreciated the “I am heard” idea in the talk/tap exercise shown. I added “I won’t be forgotten” “its ok to be still and quiet, you won’t be forgotten” — I’m a T4. Flash forward, each of my children were born early. Daughter T2/3 at 36 weeks vaginal birth but had fluid in her lungs and was whisked away to the NICU. I didn’t get the bonding and nursing immediately after birth that I’d hoped for and the NICU gave her a bottle as no one took me to my child or my child to me for almost 8 hours — till my husband T2/3 found a wheelchair and took me himself. I was crushed when my daughter couldn’t latch on but I overheard a female doctor asking the NICU staff to let her know of any mothers of NICU baby who intended to breast feed for a study she was conducting. I grabbed her coat and told her I’d overhead and please sign me up. I had a personal lactation consultant and a pump in my room within 30 minutes and learned to double pump that first evening. I accepted that my daughter would get bottles of my milk till we could get home and figure things out. She was there for 10 days. She was so peaceful except when the nurses would change the probes attached to her foot. The half joked that my daughter was so fierce that they needed 3-4 nurses to change this probe. In the end, my husband found a nipple shield that we used to help teach our daughter to latch on and eventually she did without the nipple shield. I nursed her till she was 18 months. three years later I had preterm labor at 24 weeks with our son. I was on bedrest and medication and had contractions every day of the rest of my pregnancy. My cervix was shortened and partially dilated. Once my sons lungs were safely developed and his size was over 5 lbs we began to step down the medication dosages. At 34 weeks the medication was stopped and within two days I was fully in labor. But how ironic, things didn’t progress and I had pitocin. But at 2:00 a.m. a monitor went off and within 2 minutes I was in the hallway being shaved and given medicine so quickly I was warned it would make me nauseas and on my way to an emergency c-section. I had no time to even think about it. A nurse who had known me throughout several hospital visits along the pregnancy took the task of waking and surgically dressing my husband. by 2:30 minutes I was cut open and Colin was out. He was fine, but had to go to the NICU to have his blood sugar tested since I had developed gestational diabetes (duh, bed rest). No biggie, we knew how to handle that. My husband made sure to get a wheelchair and as soon as I was stitched up, the helpful nurse helped again and I got right down there to nurse my son. But, someone had noticed something they didn’t like about his heart rate and he was to be admitted to the NICU for a low and unstable heart rate. In the end he stayed 8 days and was released after my husband and I were trained in infant CPR and Colin was put on a Holter Monitor, which alarmed if his heart rate dropped too low. Talk about a nervous homecoming! The alarm went off near constantly the first 24 hours and we ended up back at the hospital — turns out he has a naturally low heart rate and it runs in my husband’s family (uh, no one talked about their health so we didn’t know). He was in that monitor for 8 months so always had to have snap onesies and footies — never zippers — to accommodate the wires. Colin is a T1/2 and is an early riser with a ton of energy but a beautiful ability to relax. Seana is supremely good at relaxing and going with the flow but backs that with a force to be reckoned with! Like I said, lots to work on.
