The Hardest Part of Birth Prep…

Preparing for an Ecstatic Birth can be So Much FUN.

I mean.. .who doesn’t love expanding pleasure in her life and body?!? Right?

We’ve been trained to put our energy and attention on positive manifestation.

Creation from a place of love and excitement truly is potent work, IF- you’ve done the deep work of clearing out your fears.

In the almost 10 years I have been doing this work, I have never met a woman that didn’t have resistance to this critical piece of birth prep.

Everyone has fears going into birth.. that is 100% normal and natural- fear of pain, motherhood, c-section, tearing… yes.. and the one mega fear underlying everything:

Birth as a Shamanic Journey

Last night I was cuddling in bed with my daughters, my heart expanding and aching with my love for them.

Calling them into my life was one of the most transformative journeys I have ever taken and it continues to this day.

Ever notice how your pulsating LOVE for another presses you to grow beyond your own edges?

My desires for my children take me into realms I would never venture into for myself.

NURTURING LIFE

I want you to meet one of the many exceptional guest teachers in the Ecstatic Birth Practitioner Training, Sokhna Heathyre Mabin.

A leading edge visionary of sacred fertility and creativity, Sokhna is a woman who stands for all women, for mothers, for babies, for LIFE.

As a doula of color, and one developing doula programs for her community, Sokhna intimately understands the challenges black women face in the birthing room and what long term solutions look like, solutions that include:

Respect.
Connection.
Community.
Support.
LOVE.

Autonomy and Immunity

One of the many, overflowing gifts that birth has given me is a sense of my own autonomy.

Navigating my options in preparation for my first birth, I prioritized everyone’s opinions and desires over my own. That didn’t play out very well.

I experienced a birth trauma that carried over into an inability to conceive and carry a second child.

I looked everywhere for answers and I found none, until I was encouraged to look within.

Sensations of Pleasure in Birth

We received such a powerful transmission from Lisa Weinstein who so bravely and boldly shared her birth experiences with us.

Lisa gave potent words and feelings to the layers of Ecstasy and Orgasmic pleasure possible in childbirth.

If you have any doubt….
Curious how it is possible…
Want to understand what the heck I mean…
