CUSTOMIZED CHILDBIRTH PREPARATION
Activating your capabilities to approach birth confidently
and to face whatever comes your way
Birth and its preparation mean something different for every woman. Customized childbirth preparation adresses those aspects and processes that are particularly important to you. What your childbirth preparation will look like depends on your questions and wishes. As a Gestalt psychotherapist, childbirth mentor and Yoga teacher I offer a wide spectrum of approaches, knowledge and experience, to provide you with a comprehensive and holistic childbirth preparation.
Together we choose the methods and practices that serve you best. This can be one or any combination of the following:
Coping with pain, intensity and exhaustion: Learning and practicing various tested techniques
Gestalt therapy: Dialogue, self-awareness, exploration, strengthening of resources and resilience. Navigating worries, boundaries, fears
Yoga: Body and breath awareness in motion. Stretching, strengthening, relaxing
Orientation and information about many different topics such as: supportive measures for a low intervention birth, acupressure points during labor, navigating medical necessities, decision making before, during and after birth
Birthing from Within™ childbirth preparation: Self-discovery, working with assumptions and beliefs, communication with your birth team, creative elements, self-care
Meditation: Practice to relax and find your center, peace, calmness
By working with women around birth, I have learned to not see worries and fears as obstacles. On the contrary, I often find them to be valuable clues and hidden resources. Pregnancy and birth are influenced by various factors, not all of which can be planned or controlled. Preparing for birth and parenthood also means activating tools needed to face the unknown and unexpected.
There is no right or wrong way to give birth. Birth is diverse and unique. So is customized childbirth preparation.
It is open to all pregnant women, regardless of where and how they plan to give birth, their reproductive history, sexual orientation, how far along and what shape they are in.
It is also ideal as a supplement to a regular birth preparation course (Geburtsvorbereitungskurs).
Frequency and duration of your preparation depends on your wishes. You can do session alone and/or with your partner or birth companion.
