Conscious Pregnancy and Childbirth

The great womb of the mother is the cradle of love and safety that nurtures us into being, and the experience within informs the cellular and emotional foundations of the child.

The vibrational frequency of your consciousness and the way you perceive life has a huge impact on the soul that you will attract into your being as a mother.

Your state of mind, your physical health, your bond with your baby, your relationship with yourself, with others and with the world, are all transmitted through your womb and will determine the foundation of your child’s subconscious, the root of their personality.
 
With the incredible power of creation comes great responsibility.

For your child to experience the highest form of love upon arrival into this physical matrix, the mother’s vessel must be clear, pure and peaceful. Due to ancestral karma in our feminine lineage, we carry wounds which when lit with awareness, have the potential to heal and transmute into acceptance, love and forgiveness.

Your conscious collaboration in this creation is necessary and in addition to acupuncture, I will offer you other means in which to raise and purify your temple in preparation for this great act.

Acupuncture is well documented, researched and proven to be extremely effective in the cleansing, preparation, facilitation, and maintenance of this sacred experience and initiation.

Antenatal

FIRST TRIMESTER

0-12 weeks: nausea, fatigue, anxiety, constipation, risk of miscarriage, IVF assistance

SECOND TRIMESTER

14-27 weeks: heartburn, constipation, haemorrhoids, headaches, stress, pelvic pain

THIRD TRIMESTER

29-36 weeks: heaviness, tiredness, back pain, sciatica, labour anxiety, breech presentation

Breech presentation

Research has shown that this non-invasive treatment significantly increases the chances of your baby turning spontaneously, and my personal experience has shown 100% success.

How do we do it? We use a technique called moxibustion (mugwort herb burnt and used in the form of a stick) in combination with acupuncture which is safe and relaxing. The protocol also includes daily self-treatment with guided instruction on how to use the sticks at home. Although this is ideal at week 33-35, I have seen many babies turn at week 38+.

It is important to note that there is nothing wrong with a breech baby, but it has been branded as a problem by creating stress around the potential of a medical intervention instead of re-training midwives to deliver babies feet first. However, on a deeper level, a breech presentation can indicate that the mother has not yet made herself ready for birth and that she may need to focus on the heart-uterus connection with her baby.

FREQUENCY:

On an individual basis, every 2-4 weeks or as needed.

Pre-Birth Programme

How can acupuncture help?
Weekly treatments are recommended to:

  • Boost your stamina
  • Open the cervix
  • Relax your nervous system
  • Promote foetal positioning
  • Support your emotional and physical health
  • Strengthen the heart-uterus connection between mother and baby

FREQUENCY:

From week 36

Other practical conversations to have together with your partner and with me: vaccinations, home birth, doula and midwife assistance.

Labour Induction

This approach is not encouraged. The medical system can create fear when we are rushed and threatened by the very real possibility of planned surgery. It is of great importance that we make informed decisions from a place of power rather than from a place of fear.

A baby will arrive when mother and baby are ready. Unless there is a significant medical problem, there is no need to worry.

If you have concerns at this time in your pregnancy, please contact me to see how we can work together with your baby to promote natural birth.

Acupressure

The beloved men by our sides often feel helpless, lost and left out of this magical process. Acupressure is a wonderful opportunity for them to feel more empowered and involved in the birth of your child. The points and techniques are easily taught to you and your partner. They are an effective tool to help calm your mind, reduce pain and enhance your whole birthing experience.

Postnatal

This is the first 6 weeks (42 days) after your child arrives earth-side.  

Preparation for this time involves creating a safe container in which your needs can be met so you can relax and receive. It is essential to rest and heal during this time, and to receive support and care for yourself and your baby. Regardless of your situation, there are ways in which this is possible for every new mother when it is prioritised as highly important.

The rest that you take now will serve you beyond the momentary need to do household chores. This is very important for your recovery and is a fairly short amount of time given that you have been pregnant for almost 10 months. Fundamental to this time is getting as much physical rest as possible, a diet that nourishes your blood and replenishes your energy, and of course bonding with your newborn.

How can acupuncture help? In addition to emotional support, it is useful for:

  • Efficient recovery – perineal and abdominal
  • Hormonal fluctuations and postpartum depression
  • Milk production and mastitis
  • Fatigue
  • Night sweats
  • Haemorrhoids
