“My recent birth with my second son Silver was the most ecstatic experience of my life bringing me closer to divine bliss than ever before. I birthed on my own terms, in my garden, inspired and supported by the wild elements around me.
The birth was a devotional act, a deep bow and surrender to our great Mother, The Divine creatrix and in total reverence to all mothers past and future. I somehow felt it my duty and honour to dedicate Silver’s birth as a reclamation of women’s body and wild soul, honouring the journey as a primal act of ancient feminine wisdom and divine connection.

There is a whole wide range of pleasure available to a woman in childbirth, emotional, spiritual and physical and so many nuances in between: Ecstasy, orgasm, bliss and so much more.

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:

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?
We know being in the BODY is key in childbirth, but sometimes that can feel so HARD.
We all hold trauma in our bodies–
whether it is from a personal experience, like abuse or assault, or something we’ve internalized from the collective, such as sexual shame.
Sometimes we are not even aware of the depths of our trauma until we peel one layer only to find another and then another.
As passionate as I am about Ecstatic BIRTH, childbirth is a portal. The true journey is that of motherhood.
How can we create an Ecstatic experience in motherhood? Even in those early days when everything is new and raw and tender?
I’m excited to share with you a woman who is devoting her career to supporting moms and doula’s in creating an optimal postpartum period.
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.
