Testimonial for Michi Arguedas

HIRE MICHI! She hosted a cerrada for me, the traditional closing ceremony 40 days postpartum, and I wish every birthing person was able to experience this offering with her.

I wanted to celebrate what I had gone through in growing and birthing my kids, but I also wanted to process the hard parts and move into the next chapter of parenthood feeling like this chapter was fully honored. The cerrada was the perfect thing to hold all of those pieces.

I don't normally host or experience ceremonies like this, and my partner had no experience with them either. Michi was so helpful in connecting with me ahead of time to go over what the ceremony would involve, and how we could tailor it specifically to what felt good to me. On the day-of, she came to our home, set up her massage table and made our living room feel special and welcoming. The way she was able to seamlessly transition me and my friends from nervous, excited energy to holding a sacred space was really beautiful. You can tell she was born to do this work; it really comes so naturally to her.

This is just how my cerrada went, and again, she'll help you find a flow that feels right for you! She began by inviting me to share what my pregnancy, birth & postpartum journey had been like, what I was still holding that I wanted to release, and what I wanted to invite in moving forward. She also made it clear that I didn't have to share anything out loud if I wasn't feeling it, and could just set an intention quietly instead. She then hosted a steam for me, and everyone shared blessings and encouraging words while I (and everyone there, honestly) let the tears come. It's hard to describe how special that time felt. Afterwards, she gave me the most amazing massage (friends went home at this point) and I ended the evening tucked in bed feeling physically amazing and spiritually full.

I cannot recommend Michi's ceremonial work more highly. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Michi!
