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.
Today I’d like to share with you a woman who helped me personally when I was preparing for my births.
I had experienced a traumatic first birth and here I was, pregnant with my 2nd and determined to have a completely different experience.
The body holds memory and I knew within mine was a memory of trauma and with that, a whole lot of fear.
It is imperative to clear negative memories and trauma from the body ahead of birth! How?
