Against All Odds: An Ecstatic Birth

You may think everything needs to be perfect in order to have an Ecstatic Birth– a loving partner, the perfect birth environment, unwavering support. 

This Conversation to Transform Birth with new mom Anysa Olivera shows that you can transcend ANYTHING if you have prepared with consciousness and commitment.

She had the rug pulled out from her at 35 weeks, losing her partner of 10 years AND she birthed during the height of the pandemic.

Despite all this she was able to drop in deep for her daughter’s birth.

She shares–

“I made love to myself in the early hours of my birth, moved slowly and intentionally through my rushes and was surrounded by things that brought me pleasure.

I was in my body.

I was deeply human and animal tethered to this earth plane in no way I had ever been before.

I laughed and was joyful; I was empty and full.

I was lucid and when the time finally came to push my daughter, the ring of fire burned. I met the fire with pleasure as I pushed.

As I knew pushing her head was the climax of my birth journey, in the restful period I was in absolute pleasure.

I even recall looking up at all of the beautiful women around me and saying, “Ladies I feel soooo gooood!

“It was exactly what I had dreamed of.”  

Watch the full interview and discover how, “Against All Odds”, she was able to experience such Ecstasy in Birth.

Pandemic Relief for Expectant Moms

Intense times for sure. I’m thinking of all our pregnant women and what it must feel like to be gestating life at this time.

The last thing we want is to be bathing our unborn children in stress and fear hormones and yet, here we are amidst a global pandemic. 

I know this is quickly becoming a challenging financial period for many, so I am offering a PAY WHAT YOU CAN rate for OBaby!, my signature training for expectant mothers.

I honestly can’t think of anything better than flooding your body with energy, love, pleasure and divine flow as we navigate the pandemic. This is good for you and good for your Baby.

Locating ECSTASY through movement

I am really excited about this conversation with Stephanie Larson, Founder of Dancing for Birth, because for me, and so many others,

DANCING is–

So much fun and a powerful gateway to ECSTASY!

Incredibly effective in managing intensity of energy flow!

Powerful in transmuting sensations from pain to PLEASURE!

Supportive of the body’s physiological process in labor!

The Fall of Man? I Think Not.

There is something that deeply troubles me about our legacy….

That moment when a baby is born and a mother emerges is magical, sacred.. POWERFUL.. The highest of highs. Right?

On a personal level, for both parents, it is one of the major milestones of life. For the baby, it is literally LIFE itself.

On a global level, this moment ushers in the next generation of humanity.

It is DIVINE- the moment creation is actualized.

The FUTURE is literally being BORN.

A pivotal EXTRAordinary moment on the planet…

and yet our legacy declares that THIS is the moment that we will PUNISH WOMEN FOR THEIR SINS AGAINST MAN.

WHAAAAAaaaaaaaaat?

The Art of FEELING

What if there was a way to release all your doubts, know you are on the right path, and enjoy yourself along the way?

There is!!.. and it isn’t a magic pill, or a rabbit hole into an alternate universe.

This holy grail exists in the place you are least likely to look…

In the SENSATIONS of your BODY!!

The dominant conversation in birth is about bypassing sensation.. numbing.. avoiding our feeling space at all costs.

Ecstatic Birth is literally turning that upside down because the places that we are taught to avoid are precisely where our power lies.

Today I’m excited to share a guest blog post by Samara Concepcion, a woman who has been devoted to this somatic exploration.
