Yoga Birth represents a collection of services that support and empower expectant moms throughout the childbearing cycle. Underlying each of these services is a belief that pregnancy and motherhood is a normal, healthy life event, an opportunity for self-discovery and transformation, and an initiation into a value system that respects and honors women's creative power. Rooted in the philosophies and practices of yoga, my approach balances knowledge and intuition as complimentary forces guiding women toward taking personal responsibility for the quality of their birth and their lives. I aim to hold the space for a shift in how birth is experienced - eschewing a fear based paradigm and creating a model of consciousness, empowerment, joy, calm, ease, trust and love - no matter the method by which baby is born.
Consistent, non-judgemental, loving support during labor can help a woman and her partner ease the fears and pain of childbirth and dramatically increase the chances of a healthy, positive outcome.
Childbirth is a sacred event that imprints itself in a deep and lasting way on the mother, her partner, and especially the baby. Effective education is vital to setting the stage for a healthy, conscious, empowering birth.
Practicing yoga during pregnancy is an unparalleled way to stay physically comfortable, emotionally centered and spiritually connected during a deeply transformative time of a woman's life.
