Lois Freedman - Counseling for Women

About Lois Freedman

Lois FreedmanLois Freedman, M.Ed., C.C.E. is a perinatal counselor, childbirth educator, and author of Birth as a Healing Experience: The Emotional Journey of Pregnancy through Postpartum. For more than 30 years, Lois has counseled women coping with anxiety, grief, traumatic birth, loss of a child, cesarean section, mother loss, miscarriage and life transitions. 

Lois created Healing from a Traumatic Birth workshops which help women speak about their difficult birth experience and heal from the trauma.  Women who attend the workshops come weeks, months or years after giving birth.  As a birthing woman, if you are left with a feeling of trauma or loss as you think about your birth experience, this confidential workshop is for you.

Helping women find joy and fulfillment in their personal and professional lives is another facet of the support Lois provides. As you take care of your family, having a designated time to explore finding the balance between nurturing yourself and taking care of others is an important gift you can give yourself.

Lois received her degrees from Northeastern University and Lesley University and is a long time member of the Partners in Perinatal Health Conference Planning Committee; the Boston Association for Childbirth Education (BACE); and the International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN). 

In 2018, Lois co-founded the South Shore Perinatal Wellness Center in Norwell, MA with other colleagues. A life-long dream to bring together like-minded, dedicated perinatal professionals has manifested! It is thrilling to be collaborating with compassionate caregivers and providing a warm, welcoming space where women can access a range of caregivers and services during the perinatal period and beyond.  

Lois cares passionately about pregnancy, birth and motherhood. She hopes that giving birth will always be honored and preserved as a natural, miraculous and spiritual experience.
