I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Birth is a BODY trip
In a culture that teaches us to live primarily in the mind, coming back to the body and letting it lead can feel alien, like speaking a foreign language.
Ecstasy lives in the body, but so does trauma.
Unresolved trauma is a major obstacle to a smooth and easy labor and delivery because it is held in the body, in our tissues, in the memory of our cells.
How often do you experience ecstasy?
Is it enough for you?
Or do you want MORE?
(Most of us want MORE.. special invitation below if that is you!)
The experience of true ecstasy is deeply nourishing but it is also quite elusive.
The truth is it isn’t that hard to locate ecstasy. We have just been looking in all the wrong places.
The place where ecstasy lives is the place that you have been conditioned to ignore.
(Ever ignored your need to pee because you were “busy?”… Yup, me too)
We have been trained to live in our heads while ecstasy lives in our BODIES.
Ooooooo, today I’d like to introduce you to a midwife that was featured in the documentary Orgasmic Birth!
In this Conversation to Transform Birth, Midwife Anne Margolis shares her insights on what it takes to open to pleasure in birth…
Some of these insights will surprise you!
I can’t wait for you to meet Ylia Sawitzki, a midwife working in New Zealand who has been immersed in pleasure and birth right from my very first event nearly 10 years ago!!! (Woah how time flies!!).
How is it possible to turn pain to pleasure in childbirth?
How is it possible to transform our birthing culture into one that empowers women rather than objectifies or victimizes them?
How is it possible to support clients in Ecstatic Birth?
The answer to all of these questions and more.. is always the same.
