We just wrapped up the Orgasmic Birth Virtual Conference! Were you able to join us?
My talk was about “Unleashing the Ecstasy in Birth” and I had the pleasure of speaking alongside my heroines, mentors, friends, and colleagues as we discussed transforming pregnancy, birth, and mothering to a positive, empowering, and pleasure-full experience.
It was groundbreaking, revolutionary and put forth a whole new paradigm of welcoming the next generation.
It is not too late. If you weren’t able to catch it live, you can purchase the entire experience here. Or consider doing a trial membership of En*theos’s learning academy. You will get access to the entire Orgasmic Birth Virtual Conference as well as their entire library of incredible wisdom, including several of my classes, and it only costs $10/month if you decide to stay on past the trial period.

I’ve got some really big news!!….
As you know, I put a lot of emphasis on a woman deepening her connection to her body and sensuality.
Even though there are many many other aspects of ecstatic birth prep, a woman’s relation to her sexuality is where the physical experience of birth needs the most healing and where a woman’s pleasure potential in birth skyrockets.
Pleasure is not an indulgence, but the most powerful and holistic birthing tool there is. (tweet!)
I was recently reading this article and was blown away by the following statement regarding some recent research.
“…they measured pain thresholds during childbirth. They found a significant reduction in pain sensitivity as the baby started to emerge through the birth canal, a correlation with G-spot stimulus. They speculate that without the pain-reducing effect of vaginal stimulation, childbirth might be even more painful, and that the pain-reducing effect could lessen the stress of childbirth and thereby promote bonding between mother and newborn.”
This speaks directly to the fact that pleasure and orgasm are built into our biological birthing system. The quote talks about reducing pain, but I’d like to take it to the next level and say that our biological system encourages pleasure during birth.
Isn’t that amazing?!?! This is why I am all fired up today. Keep reading.. it gets better :)
So why why why if pleasure in birth is built into our biology, why do so many women experience pain??
There are infinite answers to this question ranging from politics, to religion, to societal and individual psychology and beyond…A woman can address each and every one of those issues and still experience pain rather than pleasure in birth.
The single most important factor that most women do not address…
…that it does not occur to them to address..
The biggest thing that I have learned from my birth experiences is how to care for myself— that putting myself and my needs first gives me the capacity to care for others.
I’ve also learned that integrating pleasure into my self care gives me the capacity to care for others with joy.
And let me tell you… as a mother I am still working on that one. I have to practice every day. I have to remind myself and enlist friends to remind me too. Consciously taking my daily dose of pleasure is a doozy in a world that devalues pleasure, that is too busy for something as frivolous as PLEASURE.
Even though I have witnessed the gifts of pleasure firsthand (and teach them to expectant women for goodness sakes).. I still have to take myself back to basics in my practice on a regular basis.
Guess who benefits the most when I am in my pleasure?
…and pretty much everyone else who comes in my path.
This is the gift that I desperately desire to share with every expectant mother.
This is the gift I most want to pass onto my girls.The power of pleasure.This Mother’s day, I invite you to give yourself and the women that you love that gift.My friend and compatriot in the world of pleasurable birth, Debra Pascali-Bonaro and I are offering a free 21 day pleasure immersion.
