DreamBirth® | Pregnancy & Childbirth I
8 classes | Thursdays 2:30 to 4:00 PM EDT | Sept 15, 22, 29, Oct 6, 13, 20, 27, Nov 3
Part 1 – Four sessions | Imagery to prepare for birth
The main focus of these four classes is to understand how imagery works, how it is learned, and how best to respond to the “necessity of the image” when working with clients. This segment will show how imagery can help the mother connect with the baby to create a sense of safety and support while also preparing the practitioner to work with clients in these imagery exercises. These sessions have a special focus on the problems and issues that arise during the first and second trimesters: nausea, fatigue, emotional swings and fears, shifts in body image and premature contractions. Exercises to prepare for procedures and to deal with fears of mothering will also be presented and practiced.
Part 2 – Four sessions | Imagery to clear the way
The focus of these four classes is on using imagery to promote strong, warm relationships with partners, parents, one’s other children, friends, work colleagues, doctors, and midwives. These classes will also use imagery to address ancestral issues, stuck patterns, incorrect thinking and inner child issues; handling emotions that get in the way, including guilt, anger, fear, and lack of self-worth; building optimism and well-being; and dealing with previous difficulties with childbirth.
Participants will receive a Zoom link prior to the first session.
