Emotional Acuity

Emotional acuity is the practice of understanding how we’ve been shaped by our environments and experiences and using the information to navigate in a proactive manner.

We invite parents to have a greater role and impact by developing a better relationship with their experiences and ethics. We create safe spaces where we have an engaging and explorative dialogue to gain insight into the complexity of personhood.

We utilize this lens as an invitation for expectant parents to figure out how they’d like best to exercise body autonomy during their pregnancy and postpartum. We then create a viable plan of action to make this happen, including collaborative relationships with local agencies.
