Orgasmic Birth: Can it Really Be This Good?

The Final Week of The Holistic Pregnancy Tele-Summit has begun and we’ve saved the best for last! I’m excited and honored to be interviewing our expert Debra Pascali-Bonaro for tomorrow’s eye-opening call: Orgasmic Birth: Can it Really Be This Good?

Debra is one of the founding mothers of the “doula” movement. She has been a doula for over 25 years, and has trained thousands of doulas and birth professionals around the world in the practices of gentle birth support. After attending more than 400 births over more than two decades, she believes most births can occur with less technology and interference and that childbirth is a process to be enjoyed and cherished.

Debra Pascali-Bonaro is the creator and director of Orgasmic Birth: Nature’s Best Kept Secret, a documentary that examines the intimate nature of birth –an everyday miracle– and the ways in which our current system of care during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period disrupts the normal rhythms of birth and causes a myriad of other problems.  Debra is also the co-author of the book “Orgasmic Birth, Your Guide to a Safe, Satisfying and Pleasurable Birth Experience” which goes beyond the film and turns the information into a helpful guide.

Debra’s work has been featured on ABC’s 20/20, The NBC Today Show, Discovery Health, in The New York Times, The LA Times, The UK Times ands numerous parenting and health magazines.

We’ll be talking about:

  • Why having a joyful, ecstatic birth is so important to you and your baby’s long term health and wellbeing

 

  • The relationship between sexuality and birth, how orgasm can transform your birth experience and why societal taboos around feminine sexuality keep a lot of women from having this experience

 

  • How to consciously create a birth environment conducive to having a joyful birth no matter where you choose to have it

 

  • Having a natural vaginal birth after having a C-section in a prior birth (VBAC) and how to have an orgasmic birth experience after having had less than satisfying prior birth experiences

 

We’re going LIVE at 5PM Pacific/8PM Eastern. Don’t miss this very important call!

Holistic Pregnancy Tele-Summit Recap of Call with Dr. Stacey Rosenberg

We had another amazing call last night with Dr. Stacey Rosenberg D.C, chiropractor and author of Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby. Hope you were able to attend and get her great tips for how to avoid a C-Section.

Here’s a quick recap and my “Cliff Notes” from last night’s call in case you weren’t able to join us:

Simple Ways to Avoid a C-Section?” 5/23/13 Training Call with Dr. Stacey Rosenberg

The major physical changes you undergo while pregnant can weaken your pelvis and alter the position of your baby leading to longer, more painful labor or worse, a C-Section.

Your baby is in a breech position if it is not facing head down. This can significantly increase your time in labor and cause complications during birth, ultimately requiring a C-Section.

The optimum position for your baby to ensure a smooth and relatively pain-free birth is head down with his or her face towards your spine. If your baby is head down but the back of the head is facing your spine, this will lead to a lot of pain during delivery due to the pressure of its skull pressing against your pubic bone.

Balance, gravity, and movement are the 3 main factors that can work in your favor to help you keep your baby in the proper position –especially during labor! Stacey explained why lying on your back is the worst possible thing you can do during labor. If you opt for a hospital birth, the longer they monitor you, the greater your risk of needing a C-section. So make sure you have the freedom and space to move around and get in motion!.

We also learned that proper chiropractic care significantly reduces time in labor –as much as 29% for first-time pregnant women and even more for subsequent births!

There’s still time to register and listen to the replay from Thursday’s call with Stacey. But hurry, the replay is coming down after midnight pacific time on Saturday! To register, go to :http://www.dropwise.info.

Simple Ways to Avoid a C-Section: Holistic Pregnancy Tele-Summit Call with Dr. Stacey Rosenberg

We’re off to a great start so far with the Holistic Pregnancy Tele-Summit! This evening is our 2nd call in the series: “Simple Ways to Avoid a C-Section” with our resident expert Dr. Stacey Rosenberg D.C., chiropractor and author of Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby.

I was impressed by the depth of knowledge that Stacey has when it comes to having a healthier pregnancy and safer, more efficient childbirth. As both a chiropractor that specializes in pre-natal chiropractic care and a mother of two, she has more than one perspective on this subject!

We’ve set an intention for tonight’s call:  Help you understand how the physical changes during pregnancy can lead to situations that require a C-Section and simple holistic ways to address them to minimize the likelihood that you will need one.

Tonight we’ll be talking about:

  • Some of the major physical changes and common spinal issues that can weaken you during pregnancy and lead to problems during childbirth
  • The role that chiropractic care can play in helping you enjoy a healthier pregnancy and a safer childbirth
  • Knowing when a C-Section is really necessary and how to minimize the likelihood of having one
  • Simple but specific exercises you can do to naturally move your baby out of a breech position (one of the main conditions that lead to needing a C-section!) if it happens to you.

We’re going LIVE at 5PM Pacific/8PM Eastern. There’s still time to register and get onto this call. If this subject interests you then please register now. Even if you can’t make it to tonight’s call you can still access the audio replay up until midnight pacific time on Saturday, May.
