Tap Your Creative Powers for a Positive Childbirth Journey  

Creating the childbirth experience of your dreams

Many pregnancy and childbirth guides focus on what is happening in a mother’s body.  Yet what is happening in the body is created and informed by what is happening in our dreams,  images  and thoughts. This draws upon a creative intelligence within and around us, whether we know it or not.

How do we tap into the vast creative intelligence we have as creators of life, as parents-to-be?

Created by Dr. Catherine Shainberg and collaborating birth professsionals, DreamBirth® offers a direct, simple and powerful method for you to access this inner reservoir.  Once you have tapped into it, you will never lose it. In this way, childbirth using DreamBirth transforms the experience and the people having the experience of childbirth.

DreamBirth® can be used

  • For personal use  by mothers (and all parents and birth helpers) as a self-development tool.
  • For professional use by birthing professionals who are interested in becoming trained and certified in DreamBirth®

So many experts. DreamBirth® for Bonding and Parenting helps the mother (and partner) go inside to get advice from her wise self, her truly knowing self  and through that truly know your baby’s needs, how to create emotional connection, and lay the foundation for your child’s extraordinary life.
