Prepare for a Joyful Birth

I am very concerned about the expectations of birthing in our culture. It seems that it is considered a medical event, and that pregnancy is a disease! Certainly it is considered a painful, awful, agonizing experience which the medical professionals can eliminate with the magic of an epidural. NONE of this is true! In my book, I explain what a normal, natural experience pregnancy and birth should be and how to achieve that joyful experience.

How and Why of Tailor Sitting

It is a mystery to me why a Tailor would sit this way but that is what we call this exercise! It is a useful posture during pregnancy and it is excellent for mothering. So many things can be done with small children by getting on the floor and being on the same level. You can do all manner of chores while a crawling baby feels secure and content having you on the same level. Of course you are saving energy by sitting rather than standing and your baby likes your company on the floor. I hope you find it comfortable and easy to use. I certainly did as a young mother.

Pelvic Rock for Life

This simple exercise is especially important during pregnancy but I have found it to be useful ever since I learned to do it. It became an important routine for me after I no longer was pregnant. Any time you have a backache, do Pelvic Rocks. Do them regularly to prevent a back ache. Amazing but true. I can't live without the Pelvic Rock exercise!

Exercise Essentials

Birth is a normal natural function of the female body. It works because the human race has survived even when it is NOT considered to be a medical event. Sometimes medical intervention is necessary and lives are saved but it does not have to be the normal birth experience. It is too bad to miss the most amazing, exciting and magical experience in the life of a woman.. It is also healthier for the newborn baby to make sure there are no drugs getting into that wee baby's brain and body. Birth is normal and natural but we have to learn how to do it and we have to get our bodies ready for the very athletic event called BIRTH.
