Easy Birth: Addressing the #1 Fear Most Pregnant Women Harbor

Great call last night with Debra Pascali-Bonaro! She confirmed what I’ve suspected all along: the way a woman gives birth has the potential to change how she feels about herself forever. The way she feels has consequences for how she mothers and cares for her baby. Babies are also affected emotionally and physically, and over the long term, by their birth experience, and it has consequences for a woman’s other relationships, as well as for society.The creator and director of the documentary film Orgasmic Birth, knows what she’s talking about and when Debra speaks, people listen. She made it very clear that birth CAN be a profoundly sensual, sexual, and spiritual experience. When women agree to feel their labors, the flow of oxytocin will increase which is beneficial to both mother and the baby before and after birth. But in order to enable an orgasmic birth, a woman has to feel safe and open to surrender –something that doesn’t often happen under the watchful eyes of doctors, nurses and other medical personnel.Tomorrow is the final call in the Holistic Pregnancy Tele-Summit series and I said I saved the best for last so it should be a good one. I’ve got a panel of birthing experts with different perspectives lined up for a lively discussion about childbirth choices and what you really need to have a successful and pleasurable childbirth experience whichever method of delivery you choose.

Our distinguished panel consists of:

Laura Shanley — author, freelance writer, speaker, and childbirth consultant widely recognized as one of the leading voices in the natural-birth movement. A new and expanded edition of her book, “Unassisted Childbirth,” with a forward by physician and homebirth advocate Michel Odent, was released in 2012. Laura maintains a website dedicated to natural childbirth: http://www.unassistedchildbirth.com. Her work has been featured on ABC News, “20/20,” “The Doctors,” BBC, Discovery Channel, Disney, The New York Times, Reuters, and The Washington Post. She also works with women on a one-on-one basis, providing them with childbirth education and emotional support before and during pregnancy.

Rena’ Koerner –owner and founder of Integrative Childbirth Services and the Lullaby Lounge –a Southern California based place where families can come for education and proper support beginning with childbirth classes, baby classes, exercise and nutrition, all the way through the postpartum period, with special emphasis on addressing postpartum mood disorders. As a trained and certified Childbirth Professional for over ten years, Rena’ has had the pleasure of serving over 350 families. She co-founded Doulas for Surrogacy with partner Darla Burns to offer support to all triads. Her goal is to bring knowledge and compassion to both clients and students. She continues to stay abreast of the latest research as it pertains to fertility, pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. She has sat on the Board of Directors for local, state and even national organizations, so she could spread the word of choices in childbirth.

Sheila Kamara Hay is the creatrix and visionary behind Ecstatic-Birth.com. She fiercely desires to share with women that childbirth is not something they must endure, but something they can enjoy. As a mother of three, Sheila has experienced firsthand a range of births — from the traumatic to the ecstatic — and has advised and inspired countless women in the creation or reclamation of their births. Sheila serves on the board of Choices for Childbirth, a not-for-profit organization that raises awareness among expectant mothers about their options for childbirth. Sheila has worked closely with leading women in the fields of birth and pleasure, including Dr. Christiane Northrup and Regena Thomashauer (of Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts). Sheila loves cracking wide open her worldview of what’s possible in life and passing that knowledge on to other women.

These three birth professionals are passionate advocates for childbirth choices and bring an interesting and eye-opening perspective on the subject!
