Reducing traumatic births is one of the many focuses of the Birth Into Being Method. The main focus is healing one's own birth trauma, from the person’s own formative period (conception through early childhood).
Often in these workshops, participants are not interested in birth at all. For example, young unmarried men or older women who are past their childbearing age will come for their own healing of their dynamic with the Birthing Field. As a natural side effect of this work their creative force is no longer obstructed, so it is easy to give birth to whatever they want to give birth to, any creative project, including a human baby! While this Method helps pregnant women avoid possible future complications at birth, it is not limited to it.
Sorry, but no. Babies are not allowed in the workshop room.
Check with the Facilitator of the event to determine your individual needs. It may be possible to have your baby at the location of the event so long as the baby is not a distraction to you or the other participants. A support person would be required and greatly appreciated. You may also consider arranging sleeping accommodations away from the other participants in respect of their needs. As this is an intense training, everyone will need their rest.
Not at all. The Birth Into Being Method approach does not focus on re-living the pain or trauma, but rather on creation of new "reference points" in the nervous system, and a new alternative memory (non-cognitive). The "cathartic" part only lasts for a few moments.
Yes. There are numerous Birth Into Being Method Facilitators who offer private 1-on-1 and/or Skype sessions. Please check the "Practitioners" tab for certified Facilitators.
Please Note: While online sessions are a useful modern healing tool and may be creative in their enactment, they lack the group dynamic, which is a pivotal player in this work. We highly recommend attending a workshop if you can. The dynamic created by a circle of people with strong intention propels each individual so much further than on a 1-to-1 basis.
The actual process of the Limbic Imprint Re-Coding is on the second day of the workshop.
Please Note: In this instance, you can pay for attending only one day (the fee is half of the total cost for Level 1).
It is better to attend one day than none at all!
At this point the main thing to help your baby (or any small child) heal their birth trauma is TOUCH. Your skin to their skin - holding, massaging, kissing, acupressure, Jin Shin Jitsy (ancient technique of holding different points on the body, connecting and activating meridians). Or you could try it’s modern version TARA approach, developed by Stephanie Mines, the author of ‘We Are All in Shock’. You can do EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) on her, an even simpler version of TARA. If you can find a very good chiropractor or skillful cranio-sacral practitioner, it would be very, very helpful for both of you to integrate a big experience. Every layer of healing that you would experience will be reflected in the baby. You are still one system. The more you learn to accept and love yourself, the more you can relax into being who you are, the more the baby can relax into having a body.
Remember that the important thing is that everyone is alive and the healing will happen, just because you love your baby. When the baby feels loved, Mom gets away with a lot of incompetent decisions. Birth is never predictable and has it's own logic. Baby’s Soul had her/his own agenda, which you had no way of knowing. When it comes to birthing and dying, there are no accidents. The way a baby is born is not only up to you, their spirit also had a big part in how it unfolded. Just keep loving your baby, that is the best remedy. Babies are very forgiving.
First things first - a pregnant woman needs to heal her own birth trauma. While therapy sessions may be helpful in understanding what happened, it may potentially be re-traumatizing. The actual healing happens when a new reference point is acquired in the nervous system because it allows the woman to know what it feels like to not be harmed at the time she was born.
Then, the next step of importance is for the father of the baby to heal his own birth trauma, especially if he was circumcised. If he is going to be present at the birth, he needs to be able to stay strong, relaxed and focused.
Of course, the next step would be to make sure that everyone in the delivery team is free from anxiety about their own births, because, inevitably, it would be projected onto the Birthing Field and prolong the labor.
The main ingredient in ecstatic birth is the woman's ability to relax and surrender. To expand instead of contracting. Giving birth is more of a shamanic rite of passage, initiation into the Divine Feminine Art of Creation. It is not a mechanical, medical event. We applaud magicians when they pull a rabbit out of the hat. Most women can pull a whole new human being out of their own bodies! There is nothing more powerful in this reality than that! Every woman who has done this consciously is a Hero of our time!
It depends on the age of the person who was not breastfed -
For a baby, touch of any kind (including skilled adjustment or massage) is the best medicine! Attention is also important. Other than that, whatever the mother can do to neutralize her own trauma, will immediately show on the baby. There is a reason why there was no breastfeeding. When that reason is addressed appropriately, lots of tension goes away in her and, automatically, in a baby. Absence of breastfeeding is not the cause, it's a consequence of something else, which needs to be looked at.
For an adult, the Birth Into Being Method workshops are an effective way to deal with this. he whole point of the Method is to efficiently help people heal the trauma they experienced during their formative period.
Also, it is important that you talk to your child and explain that you will have to be gone to 'become a better mommy,' or something like that. They may not understand all the words, but they will definitely get the message and most kids cooperate when they are communicated to properly.
After planning for a Conscious Birth, my experience was so traumatic... It was not what I had dreamed of. What could I have done for a more harmonious, less violent and less medicalized birth?
