There are as many different ways to prepare for an Ecstatic Birth as there are women on the planet. Each woman is unique and has her own unique desires, experiences, fears and circumstances.
Connecting women to their inner wisdom is a huge part of the work that I do with my private clients. However there is one element that is completely universal, that I touch upon with every woman I work with, right away, up front and center.
The single most important factor in preparing for your birth.. is surrounding yourself with people that believe in you, your body’s wisdom, and can hold your vision for you, unequivocally.
I remember interviewing my first OB… asking her if she could support my desire to birth naturally. She said, “Of course! I will do whatever you want, but keep an open mind. Wait till you feel that first contraction…” If only I had had the wisdom, the courage, and the conviction to walk away at the moment and find someone truly aligned with my desire for a natural birth, I would have saved my body from a whole lot of trauma.
Imagine if your practitioner spoke to you about using pleasure as a holistic birthing tool? About accessing the wisdom of your body, the bliss that is always available within? Imagine if she could fully hold your vision of an Ecstatic Birth for you mind, body, and soul- even when you were doubting yourself?
I hear from doulas, childbirth educators, midwives, (even those that attend natural births) over and over again that they don’t have the embodied knowledge, or the training in this paradigm which is why I created this program specifically for practitioners.
Can you imagine how powerful it would be if everyone supporting you during your pregnancy and birth were able to hold your vision for an Ecstatic Birth and support you in that desire?
I’d like to give you an opportunity to get your birth team on the same page and aligned in the paradigm of Ecstatic Birth. I’m hosting an encore presentation of my introductory training for birth practitioners on Monday- a complimentary webinar and invitation into a larger journey.
Practitioners, I invite you to dive in and share with your networks. Not any one of us can change the landscape of birth alone, but together, we can move mountains.
Let’s stand together in transforming the landscape of birth from pain to pleasure!
