Positive Birth Workshop
Please email me to be put on the list for the next upcoming retreat.
Pregnancy is a time of deep spirituality and growth – a rite of passage whether it’s your first or your tenth child. I believe it is so important to take time for you and your baby in every pregnancy and this workshop gives you he space to do this.
In this workshop we explore the physical sides of pregnancy and birth through somatic body work as well as exploration of the mind and spiritual side of birth through vision boarding, journal writing and discussions.
I believe in the mind body connection and how important it is to link the two in pregnancy and birth so you can have the birth of your dreams.
- What would it take for you to have the birth you want?
- What does your upcoming birth look and feel like?
- How do you want to feel after your birth?
I can help guide you to do your inner work so you can have the birth you and your family deserve and desire.
We Will Explore
- Birthing Options
- Birth fear releasing
- Your ‘red thread’ or ‘Mother’ line
- Birth visioning
- The spiritual side of birth
Feel safe and held while I help you explore exactly what you want for you birth.
1.) Session 1 @ Palmyra Yoga Shala
In this session we meet for the first time and I welcome you to the circle. We connect to Mother Earth and each other in ceremony. I will introduce you to the themes we will be exploring and leave you with some journaling activities to complete by the the time we next meet.
2.) Session 2 @ Palmyra Yoga Shala
This day is about unpacking your beliefs around birth. From the journaling activities you have explored in the week – we will talk through your red thread, your menarche and cultural experiences of birth. Talk about your fears and releasing them. The wound reveals the cure.
3.) Session 3 @ Palmyra Yoga Shala
This day is about bringing your birth vision alive. You will create your birth plan/map/vision. We will then do somatic work where we get out of your head and into your body. We will literally “act out” your upcoming birth – figuring out what works and what doesn’t. Don’t leave it to the day to figure it out – let’s explore it now. Confronted? Good! This birth and this is real. If you are struggling in this activity – it’s going to give you some big clues on what you need to figure before you actually give birth. How good is it that you are doing this now instead of in your actually birth? What a blessing, what a gift! We will then explore your vision for your postpartum period and how you can achieve it. Lastly we will be integrating your mind work into your body through song and dance circle.

“This workshop was a really positive part of my pregnancy and birthing process. I had not been able to connect with similar minded mums in the mainstream groups or even friends without feeling fear or judgement. But in this circle of ladies, my choices and education surrounding a natural birth were validated, supported and celebrated. The topics covered really helped me to work through things I didn’t even realise were deeply affecting me. By the end all fears were replaced with my own personal mantras and I have so much knowledge. I feel a whole new level of confidence.” Ashlee
