Parenting is a lifetime journey.
Your first pregnancy is often a busy time of planning and preparation. It is a time of completing work projects or planning new ones to provide a stable income for your new family. It is often a time of moving house or renovating your old one.
Have you ever considered that pregnancy is also the perfect time to take a break?
Taking time out to commemorate the relationship you have with your partner can be a powerful way of cementing your mutual support of one another which is the basis for a healthy family dynamic in the future. You may be sure that your relationship will change and grow, yet it is up to you to choose the direction in which it grows. Not all couples find early parenthood easy, but those who communicate with one another and listen to each other’s specific needs for support are more likely to find the newborn months bliss and love-filled.
Spending quality time in nature during your pregnancy while you discuss your expectations, fears and anxieties for your upcoming birth, consider your parenting roles and consciously plan for the changes ahead is time well spent. It can change your lifelong relationship with your child and with one another.
Where better to celebrate your future family than on a relaxing birth preparation journey in the Okavango before embarking on the lifetime journey of parenting?
Pregnancy is a time of spiritual connection.
As Rosie said in her session with her unborn child “It’s almost like I can see the connection between my heart and womb where the baby is; there’s this strong red force connecting us. She’s a naughty, cheeky elf with a grin and then a laugh like music.” Rosie’s sense was that her baby was such a happy, giggly being that she wanted lots of laughter to make the birth easier. The session made her feel “calm but strong at the same time”.
Her husband who attended the session with her described his connection to their baby thus; “it seems like a glowing white ribbon from my heart. Like a longing, I can’t find words for it. It’s just love; bursting at the seams kind of stuff.”
What is the purpose of the Unborn Child Intensives?
Birth is a peak experience that has the potential to transform us, and birthing with conscious awareness offers our children an initial experience of life where they are shown that they need not be afraid – that life in all its intensity is something to embrace, laugh with, cry about and cherish.
During the 2 or 4 day Intensive we offer you:
Daily birth preparation for you and your partner to ensure that your birth choices are in accord with your intentions for your baby’s birth (they seldom are, simply because birthing parents might not know what to expect, what impact birth has on their relationship with their baby or how to advocate for birth options that feel important to them.)
The days are individually curated to suit your unique situation and include:
- 3 or 4 in-depth 3 hour long soul sessions (1 is a shared session, the others are individual) to come into a place of harmony with your baby on a soul level prior to the birth. These sessions are powerful for clearing karmic issues between you and your child, releasing your own experiences of being parented that may not feel optimal, letting go of birth fears or trauma from previous births, or to simply create a lasting soul bond with your incoming child.
- Discussions on birth preparation to empower you to create a beautifully supportive and welcoming entrance into the world for your baby. Birth is your child’s primary imprint, let it be one where your child is honoured for his or her precious soul wisdom.
- Daily shamanic massage for stress release for both of you prior to the birth – including tuition on how to support one another with touch as a form of healing communication
- Guided meditations specifically designed for birthing well.
Meeting your unborn baby on a soul level prior to birth shifts your relationship to a sacred level of connection. One of the most uplifting experiences of pregnancy is to work with forming a relationship with your child when he or she is still in the womb.
Unborn babies are so connected to their soul’s knowing that they hold a wisdom that far surpasses our narrow, limited version of reality. Shortly into any session working with unborn children they reveal themselves to be filled with unconditional love and to have a deep acceptance of us and our inability to understand life from their much clearer perspective.
Parent’s inner wisdom guides them to feel this connection to their babies. Even those parents who don’t trust in their ability to connect intuitively to their child in the womb seem to easily establish this relationship once they relax and allow the process to unfold. As they soften, listen and feel the quality of his essence, the baby then tells them what he needs to say.
“Robyn’s birth preparation sessions were just beautiful, each session a delight. It gave me the space to express and explore and connect and move and dance and be centered be with my partner (completely) and feel moments of deep connection with my baby and experience her wisdom and beauty, this being filled with love. And our babe’s arrival was so sudden and unexpected, her presence, her beingness, her realness left Ivan and I laughing in delight, in amazement and wonder and connection and love. A sense of utter presence which we could hold. Our midwife wasn’t able to get to us in time, so it was just Ivan and I and this new new being. In the weeks and months that followed I have been able to hold my small beautiful little child and look deep into her eyes and see and be met by the magnificent beautiful love soul being God within and say yes hello I know you and fill to the brim with love and tears and emotion. ” – Lisa
