Birth is the ultimate act of trust and surrender – to the unknown and to the profound intelligence of our female bodies. The demands of modern life have resulted in many of us being more present in our thoughts than in our exquisite bodies. Our focus is often on doing rather than on just being, leaving us quite disconnected from our true feminine power and magic.
How then can we relax and open to birth our babies with relative ease, let alone ecstasy?
This workshop is a lush sanctuary in which to:
- slow down and connect with what’s really present for you as you approach your baby’s birth
- learn to deeply trust and surrender to the power and instinctual knowing of your exquisite womanly body
- connect fully with your primal intelligence, sensuality and sexuality as powerful tools for labour and birth
- experience these as doorways to the transcendent states associated with undisturbed and ecstatic birth
- explore your dreams, desires and vision as you transition to motherhood
- draw on the support of Mother Earth and the women who have birthed before you
- set your intention for a deeper level of self-nurturing and learning to receive support as an ongoing priority in the days ahead
- celebrate your magnificence as Woman and Mother
- fully immerse in the miracle of bringing new life into the world
The workshop will include a session of Primal Mama: embodiment for birth practices as an invitation to fully inhabit your primal body; empowering information on maximising your potential for the safe, undisturbed birth of your baby; tips for cultivating the potential for ecstatic birth; a somatic journey to prepare for the feeling of birthing your baby; other processes to deepen your trust in normal physiological birth.
There will be time set aside for you to enter a deep state of relaxation as you reflect on your vision for the birth of your baby. This space will also allow you to articulate your fears, transmute them in a simple but powerful ritual and replace them with positive intentions for the birth of your baby and your life as a mother.
Being held unconditionally by a circle of women will have the added benefit of stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system and flow of oxytocin & endorphins – the very conditions you will want to replicate in labour.
The cost of the workshop includes nourishing snacks and a resource pack with information related to pregnancy, birth and the “fourth trimester” to help clarify your intentions and boost your confidence. You will also receive a gift of a free birth hypnosis audio.
Places at this workshop are strictly limited to create an intimate and sacred container as you dive into your own depths in the company of like-minded women.
You are welcome to attend at any stage of your pregnancy. If you have any physical limitations, please discuss these briefly with me prior to the day in relation to gentle yoga movements.
The workshop will most likely leave you feeling deeply nourished, totally blissful and empowered for your journey of pregnancy, birth and beyond.
