-------

The Birth Village is a space for you to take a pause and connect: with your pregnancy, your upcoming birth, and other women. We will meet twice a month, and at each encounter we will talk, share and discuss. Each encounter will last 2h and they will all have the same general structure:

  • A first moment to share and ask questions. Around a cup of tea, women can bring to the circle anything that their own worries, fears or questions, and share with the rest her own thoughts and experiences
  • Then, we will discuss specific topics around pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum
  • Then, we will do together some concrete activities to help you connect with your pregnancy and your baby
  • We will finish with a closing exercise (relaxation, cooling down, affirmation cards, etc), and meet again in our circle to have a last cup of tea and a moment to share final thoughts and reflections

At each of the Birth Village sessions we will focus in one of the four possible themes: FeelFlowBreathe and Dive (keep reading to find out more about each topic). They do not have a particular order and you can join to only one encounter or to as many as you want.

At every session we will do some movement exercises (in some sessions more than others, but this aspect will always be present!), so please try and bring comfortable clothes 🙂

As an important remark, please be aware that The Birth Village is not a birth preparation course. These are dynamical sessions with a very active participation of the attendants. They will absolutely help you prepare for birth, but the sessions do not have a lecture format. If you are looking for more structured classes (both theoretical and practical), have a look at my Birth is Movement course! You can absolutely also do both, since the topics do not really overlap.

* The four themes *

As mentioned above, all the sessions have the same structure, but at each encounter we will focus on a specific topic. Here you can find out more about what to expect from each type of session.

- Breathe

During this encounter we will review the important role of the diaphragm both during pregnancy and for pushing, as well as other considerations for the pushing phase of labor. We will learn how to open up space, and do vocalization and breathing exercises with the pregnancy balls and suspensions. 

- Flow

On this session we will talk about how to create your birth plan and why it is so important. We will also talk about the importance of knowing your options, of advocating for yourself, and being aware of the “cascade of interventions”. We will discuss how to flow with determination while we create our own visual birth plans together, and we will find our own flow moving with the help of props and music.

- Feel

On this encounter we will explore our own relationship with pain, get familiar with its role during labor, and talk about the different coping techniques to be used during labor, as well as the importance of finding your own ritual during contractions. We will learn to recognize and register our pelvis and our pelvic floor, and do mobility exercises using pregnancy balls and suspensions. Bring confortable clothing!

- Dive

During this session we will review in detail the basic needs of a woman in labor (inspired by the works of M. Odent and R. Ehrhardt). We will learn about the importance of trully diving into labor, and how to facilitate this. Then we will also discuss about the importane of trully diving into postpartum as well, while we discuss the basic needs of newborns. We will together create a labor charm for each participant that will be a connecting line between the baby in the womb, during labor, and after they are born, when it will be used as a babywearing/breastfeeding/bonding necklace. We will finish with some relaxing postures using the balls and suspensions.
