“I wish I’d known about this when I was pregnant with my babies…”
How often I've heard women who've already had their children comment that they wish they’d known about the different ways to be supported during pregnancy and birth and the options for preparing for labour.
Getting ready to bring life into the world involves much more than simply eating the right foods, moderate exercise and wishful thinking. Birth is huge initiation for mother, father and baby, a rite of passage, a deeply transforming life experience that affects the emotion and the psyche.
These fears and memories stem from the Limbic System, a subconscious part of the brain that was absorbing all of the earliest experiences from the moment of conception, through gestation, birth and into early childhood. It is these imprints and fears, left unaddressed that become amplified during labour, often showing up in the form a birth complication.
These memories are deep and may need some guidance to be realized, but they are not difficult to access and even re-code. Simple yet profound processes have been developed to ‘let go’ of old fears and outdated belief systems, and replace them with new, supportive pathways within the brain and nervous system. In the lead up to childbirth this is of crucial importance for those wishing to become a clear channel for birthing energy to flow through, to enable gentle and graceful birth. Not only does releasing fear have a positive effect on the actual labour, it helps to avoid passing on any trauma or unnecessary dysfunctional beliefs about birth, life, love and creativity to baby.
Birth Into Being Method as developed by Russian born conscious birth visionary Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova, is designed to re-code Limbic Imprints that may be holding you back from freely and easily creating anything new – whether it be new life, a new project or even an upgraded version of yourself. Working specifically with the knowledge of pre-natal psychology, the fundamentals of neuroplasticity, and magical, mystical energy of birth, Birth Into Being can help you move forward fearlessly.
If you are in the process of creating new life and desire to be as free as possible from fear or any inhibiting core beliefs you may still be holding on to, give your emotional and psychological preparation the rightful place it deserves. This will become the beautiful gift of a gentle, aware beginning for you and your baby.
