Welcome to Art of Birthing
Birth is a time of transformation and celebration .
A time of conflicted feelings dancing between joy and excitement and fear and anxiety. Birth brings change and therefore resistance and desire. Desire for change, expansion and movement to the next stage of life and simultaneously resistance to changing too much!
I have designed Art of Birthing as a unique course designed to take you and your partner (or just you) through the dance of transformation to the birth of your new family in a way that is fun , explorative, family focused, meditative, confidence building and uniquely suited to each couple as you go at your own pace and in your own way.
I take 4-6 clients a month offering a midwife led birth either at home or hospital. I am currently using Vincent Pallotti and Constantiaberg as private hospital backup otherwise home-births and a provincial hospital for those without medical aid.
Art of Birthing Support Programme
I offer 4 sessions in conjunction with the 4 modules using soul integration and family constellations as part of the process.
I offer four sessions post birth spaced out over a six month period working on integrating the birth experience and the new role of parenting using the same modalities.
In conjunction with the Art of Birthing programme, I offer labour support for those women who would prefer a doctor led birth, but would like to labour at home for as long as possible before transferring to the hospital once in active labour. I would monitor your progress at home as a midwife, but would step into the doula role once in hospital.
I offer placenta encapsulation which involves dehydrating and encapsulating your placenta for the many post partum recovery benefits such as increased vitality, improved milk production and faster healing.
