Imagery is the language of the body, of experiencing. It is the first language the body understands. As Catherine Shainberg, the creator of DreamBirth
® explains, “The body doesn’t understand words as well as it does pictures. You can’t tell your heart to beat less quickly, but by imagery you can learn to quiet heart beats, to lower high blood pressure, to stop premature contractions…”, to get the baby in the right position, to open easily, to diffuse and lessen pain—the list is endless.
® you can:
• Learn to see, connect and communicate with your baby throughout your Pregnancy
• Create an easeful and beneficial birth environment for you and your baby
• Promote optimal fetal positioning
• Diminish fears
• Help reduce pain during labor
• Accelerate the post- partum healing process
• Minimize side effects of medication
• Create deeper intimacy between you and your partner
In these three Modules, you will experience and learn the exercises that have transformed many lives.
We will do the exercises together. They last from one to three minutes, are very easy to learn, and are relaxing and fun to do. Each module consists of 4 weeks, with one 90 minute Class per week.
“To get pregnant, like a good farmer, you will want to clear the land, removing any stones and fertilizing the field, before you start planting your seeds” — DreamBirth by Catherine Shainberg
Great or small beliefs can get in the way of conception: for example, “all the women in my family that have narrow hips have trouble conceiving,” or, “If I have a baby I can’t have a career,” or “if I have a baby my relationship with my husband will be ruined”, and on and on. Learn exercises to clear belief systems that get in the way, as well clearing resentments of the past and fears of the future. Learn exercises to move past old relationships, miscarriages and abortions, and how to repair and make vibrant present relationships.
These recorded classes are taught by Claudia Raiken, who worked with Catherine on the development of the DreamBirth
® method, with seven other doulas, nurses, psychologists and birth professionals. The method has been producing innovative and successful results for women for over ten years.
