Chantel Kismet is a Childbirth Educator and Parent Coach at Blooming Births.

She is all about supporting parents through their parenting journey through inner work and inner child bonding. She brings trauma-informed somatic modalities into her philosophy and is passionate on preventing birth trauma.

What you are today is a culmination of all everything that has happened in the past. What is your story and how did you end up setting up Blooming Births?

My own traumatic experience and postpartum led me down this path as a birth keeper. Initially, my drive was to protect the sacred journey of women during childbirth through advocacy, empowerment and transitioning into matrescence.

Over the years, this passion has blossomed into a heartfelt commitment to trauma healing and offering guidance to parents through inner healing.

What are 3 things every woman should know before she becomes a parent?


Parenthood can be demanding, both physically and emotionally, and it’s easy to forget about your own needs when you’re focused on caring for a child.

Knowing how to prioritize self-care, ask for help when needed, and find moments to recharge can make a significant difference in your well-being, and allow you to show up for your family


Motherhood often brings changes to a woman’s body and the way you view intimacy may change. You are also learning how to accept this new body.

How can you reconnect to your feminine energy through pleasure and sensuality? Exploring your sexual and sensual needs with yourself and your partner can build deeper connections.


You will make mistakes and you may not even know what you are doing. But trust that the mistakes you make are simply explorations and a chance to grow. Learn how to get good at connecting and repairing your relationships – with your spouse and with your child!

Tell us about a common presentation you see in preggies about to give birth?

The need for control and certainty or the need to do it all.

Each stage in a woman’s life unfolds as a unique season, and in each season, the balance of feminine and masculine energies may shift.

When you’re growing a new life within you, it’s crucial to recognize that this is a time to slow down, prioritize self-nurturing and embrace not knowing.

Instead of trying to juggle a million other responsibilities, it’s an opportunity to turn inward, cocoon yourself in self-love, and embrace the rest you deserve while growing that little human within you.

What advice would you give your 18-year-old self?

As you journey through life, the wisdom of self-discovery deepens, and the current version of yourself is a work in progress—a beautiful journey of growth.

Extend to yourself the gifts of kindness and compassion, for mistakes are simply stepping stones in your exploration of life.

Learn grounding tools, focus on meaningful connections and learn the art of investing.

How do you deal with self doubt and criticism?

It took my years to get here, and initially it started with building awareness and identifying when that negative narrative switched on. I have a daily practice that helps me get grounded.

When self-doubt and criticism arise, I pause and use IFS to bring in my nurturing presence and offer words that I would offer a young child if they had self-doubt and criticism.

If it’s affecting mean, then that’s probably a reflection of old patterns that creep up and so I go back to spirit and meditation.

What is one thing most people think they know, but you have another take on?

Most people think that parenting is all about the child when in fact, it’s all about the parent.

Understanding a child’s world through their eyes allows us to connect on a deeper level. It enables us to respond to their needs and emotions with empathy and compassion.

But in order to do so, we need to work on our inner shadows.

It sets the foundation for a nurturing and emotionally healthy parent-child relationship, creating an environment where your child can flourish and thrive!
