Description

DreamBirth® | Pregnancy & Birth |  Course 2  | Tuesdays | 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM EDT | 5 Dec 2023 – 20 Feb 2024

DreamBirth® is a tool par excellence to address both the inner fears, worries, beliefs, and ancestral patterns that get in the way of a good pregnancy and birth, as well the external demands of partners, parents, other children, and hospital procedures and attitudes of birthing personnel that can also impede the natural flow of events. Taught by Claudia Raiken, Master Practitioner and Director of DreamBirth®, it is an excellent tool to create the conditions for a positive birth experience.

DreamBirth® Pregnancy and Birth | Course 2: Flexibility of body and mind; Preparing for birth; Asking permission of the body. Continue with emotions that get in the way.

Part 1: Flexibility of Body and Mind

The main focus of the first four classes is to develop flexibility of body and mind, as both birth and mothering require it. The importance of alignment is for increased comfort and an easier birth: With correct alignment there is more room for baby, and allows baby to descend.

We will study:

  • Exercises that expand and lengthen.
  • Exercises to turn breech or misaligned baby.

These exercises use light, air and water images for expansion; they also focus on the connections between the jaw and pelvis, mouth and cervix.

Part 2: Preparing for birth, for both birthing professional and birthing parents

The focus of the last four classes is preparing for the birth, for both doula and birthing parents, and exercises for postpartum issues. We introduce exercises for the husband or partner. Learn exercises to prepare for the birth, for both doula and birthing parents, and exercises for postpartum issues.

These four classes focus on exercises for birthing professionals and exercises for making decisions! We will study:

  • Exercises to deal with contractions, hospital procedures and with problems that can arise during labor, including placenta not releasing. 
  • Exercises for cesarean, or any other intervention, wanted or not wanted; importance of getting body’s (and baby’s) permission.  
  • Exercises for immediately after the birth: to connect with baby, to clear the body if any medications were taken, to heal any tears or incisions, to talk to doctors and nurses and to encourage for milk supply. 

Classes will be organized around practitioner’s needs and desires,  as each situation presented may require different exercises than those mentioned above.

Participants will receive a  Zoom link prior to the first session.

Fee: $360
