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.
“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.
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!

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!!).
