I believe that the breath is both an anchor and a doorway in cultivating a quiet mind, a relaxed body and a balanced life. The breath is a constant regardless of our life’s journey or milestones. My interest and passion for embracing life’s moments with complete mind/body presence first led me into the field of social work and then into mindfulness meditation and that is where my own journey into childbirth education began over eight years ago.
I became a certified HypnoBirthing® Childbirth educator because I have always been passionate about supporting women as they connect to their unique, powerful and innate wisdom to give birth in a calm and confident way. It is a beautiful and sacred moment when women begin to recognize and trust their bodies as their most intimate teacher. The role of the birth partner throughout the birthing process is no less important as they are the protectors of space and the voice of encouragement and comfort.
Over the 5-week period of classes, you will learn to trust the power of your birthing body and learn a set of unique breathing and relaxation techniques that can be used during labour to create a more calm and positive birthing experience. Each class will provide a structure to quiet your mind and relax your body so that you will release any fears, preconceived expectations or anxieties about birth. As you expand your ability to be present, you will trust and embrace the unknown and unexpected of birth while increasing your curiosity, joy and wonder at the sacredness of the moment.
As your journey unfolds, my intention is to empower and guide you, along with your birth partner, towards an informed, calm and mindful pregnancy and birthing experience. I believe every woman has the right to choose and be informed of all her options when it comes to childbirth and to surround herself with health care practitioners that fully support and align with her birth preferences and values. I would be honoured to be part of your journey by supporting and guiding you in the miracle of birth.
If you are interested in connecting on a deeper level to your birthing body and participating with the birthing process, then HypnoBirthing® childbirth classes are for you.
