Body-based birth coaching
Somatobirthing™ is a holistic approach with deep somatic awareness.
The intuitive, instinctive, meditative movements and the active birth positions will support you to own your birth experience.
Breath awareness and focus exercises in addition to childbirth education will help you stay mindful and positive.
Welcome to Somatobirthing™
I am here to support you in the childbearing period, and beyond.
I draw on my twenty years experience in childbirth education, pregnancy yoga, birth attendance as a doula, and counselling.
I offer prenatal classes and consultations online only.
You are very welcome to contact me if you are expecting.
The less you fear,
the more relaxed
It is well-known that a mother’s relaxation have a significant effect on the baby during pregnancy as well as labour and birth. Our relaxations, both deep and dynamic, will support you to reach a level of somatocentered consciousness,
a relaxed, “trance-like” state that occurs naturally during labour.
Somatobirthing™ with Réka will help you stay aware, focused, present and at ease during your time of expectancy and later on in labour so that you can draw on your natural instincts easily and trust your inner resources.
THE THREE PILLARS OF SOMATOBIRTHING™
Informational birth preparation
Whether you plan to give birth in a hospital, a birth centre or at home, the more you know about how you and your baby are connected and work together, the more you can trust your own power.
Feeling your way through birth
Knowing is power but birth does not happen in our head! It is a deeply somatic experience but most modern women are not in contact with their bodies. We use intuitive movement to build and restore this connection to our instinctual selves.
BREATH + FOCUS
Balance in and out
We practice our breathing and pain coping techniques together with movement, our relaxations are also dynamic – this is what birth is like. It is not enough just to sit, we need to disperse the powerful energies of birth in the body – this is what makes this experience so overwhelmingly beautiful!
