The logic behind this preparation
The basis for a calm and peaceful birth is inside every mammal
Did you know women are, like all other female mammals, designed to give birth without suffering and in a very natural and gentle way?
Unfortunately, however, the vast majority of women is bombarded with negative ideas and suggestions about birth from a very young age, and therefore they often see birth as a very difficult and painful process.
This negative approach causes tension, fear and anxiety during labor and this will trigger the so called "fear response" in the body: blood is deviated from the uterus and the release of labor hormones is disturbed. That leads to a longer and more difficult labor.
But believe me: it's NOT meant to be like that.
This course teaches women to direct the mind and the body to a calm and positive state, helping them to achieve a calmer birth experience. By changing the previously mentioned negative approach that is often associated with labor, the mother prevents the creation of tension and anxiety during the process. This way, instead of feeling stressed and anxious, she feels confident and calm during labor. This will then boost the production of labor hormones and facilitate the process.
The result: a calm, peaceful and positive birth experience for mother AND baby, which will then carry the impressions of this day for the rest of their lives.
I believe that the right knowledge can transform birth into a beautiful and life changing experience- for mother and for baby
My name is Angela, I'm a biologist and totally passionate about everything surrounding the birth universe. The way mammals give life to their babies has always fascinated me.
I learned relaxation techniques for the birth of my second daughter and that helped me to experience labor in a very calm and focused way.
In the beginning of 2018 I went to London to follow a childbirth educator course. I trained with Katherine Graves, head of the KGHypnobirthing association in the United Kingdom.
I truly believe that the right knowledge can transform the way a family experiences birth and along this journey I have been helping couples to achieve a positive birth for their babies.
I'm Brazilian, currently living in the Netherlands.
I wish you an amazing pregnancy and birth journey!
