There are no words to express my gratitude for the miracle dream birth I had 2 weeks ago…This was baby #6 after a 13-year break. Each of my births was complicated, with 2 emergency C-sections, 3 difficult deliveries and long painful recoveries involving episiotimies with many stitches.
My DreamBirth® delivery was painless and all of 3 pushes. I had my baby girl placed on my chest because there were no complications—I've never been given this privilege. I'll never forget that moment. DreamBirth® gave me a sense of tremendous control and strength. —Miriam Peykar

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 with imagery you can quiet the heart, lower high blood pressure, stop premature contractions…”
Getting the baby in the right position, opening easily, diffusing and lessening pain—the list is endless.

With DreamBirth® 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 the five Modules, you will experience and learn the exercises that have transformed many births.
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.

The focus of this Module is preparing for the birth—for both doula and birthing parents—and exercises for postpartum issues. You will learn:
• How to deal with contractions and hospital procedures
• The importance of checking with baby and body and how to do it
• Exercises to deal with problems that arise during labor, including placenta not releasing. • Exercises for caesarian, or any other intervention, wanted or not wanted
• The importance of getting body’s (and baby’s) permission and how to do it.
• Exercises for making decisions.
This module focuses on exercises for birthing professionals.

Class 1
Preparing for labor, exercises for laboring woman and doula

Class 2
What doula and partner can do to clear birthing space, to bring the best out of medical personnel, how to best be ‘heard’, and in general what to do in specific situations that need remediation

Class 3
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

Class 4
Exercises for milk supply, calming overwhelm, for sleep exhaustion, for quietening oneself. Exercises to repair body postpartum, and to connect with baby long distance.

Classes will be taught by Claudia Raiken, who worked with Catherine on the development of the DreamBirth® method, with seven other doulas, nurses, psychologists and birth professionals:
“I can unequivocally assert that there is no greater tool for both pregnancy and childbirth than DreamBirth®. It is also an incredible tool for conception: 95% of the women I worked with have conceived. Many of these women came to me in desperation, still unable to conceive after having multiple IVF’s. DreamBirth® is a beautiful adjunct to any other modality that is being used for conception; it will enhance the effects of acupuncture, herbs, and IVF.”
