It is with great excitement I announce the first round of this amazing education series for 2020!
After becoming a doula, I assumed that I had it all under control. I was going to birth my second child with calmness and serenity. (Ha!)
I understood the Fear/Pain/Tension cycle!
I had the affirmations, I read the positive birthing stories, I was PREPARED!
You can imagine my surprise when I found myself stressed and scared towards the end of my pregnancy. You can imagine my surprise when I went into labour and realized that I had left out a very important part of the preparation.
What I needed was to create a space to slow down and dig deep.
What I needed was to explore my inner landscapes; my relationships with myself, my body, my baby, my own birth experiences.
I needed to be more in touch with the whole spectrum of emotions that one can feel during pregnancy and childbirth.
More connection to the divine feminine and the universal wisdoms of childbearing.
What I needed was more than evidence based information and hip squeezes.
If you are pregnant and feeling stressed, overwhelmed with the quantity and quality of information available, this series is for you.
If you want a safe and slow space where we will change the language of birth from fear to excitement, this series is for you.
