Mindful Birthing for Women – Mapping your ideal birth. – taught by Charlotte Scott, ncltmb, cld – brings her experience from 2 decades of leading women’s circles, 7 years of teaching the BOLD Childbirth Empowerment Method to pregnant mamas. A longtime student of Gabrielle Roth and the 5Rhythms she combines a passion for movement with her training in Dancing for Birth™ and her years of mindfulness training to enhance her childbirth preparation for women.
From birth plans to pain coping and labor fears women have lots of thoughts about what they might need for a positive birth experience. The journey of motherhood begins as a desire, a dream or a realization. It might be the most exciting time or the scariest. This is a workshop to navigate these intense times.
Instead of a “birth plan” what about a Birth Map? What does your Map need to guide you through this amazing and intense time? Does it currently have roadblocks or obstacles to you having the birth you are dreaming of? Do you feel like you are unsure of your birth choices? Or perhaps you feel as if you have made all the “right” choices, but wonder what it takes to meet the challenge?
Mindful Birthing – Couples Workshop is 5 hrs of hands on childbirth preparation and partner preparation. Taught by Charlotte Scott, ltmb, cld. Charlotte is a labor doula, licensed body worker, massage therapist and childbirth educator.
This can be taken as a refresher for couples or as an opportunity to deepen partner preparation.
