The Flow of Life expresses itself through pregnancy and birth. When this flow is thwarted or impeded, the birth is not able to follow is natural impetus and this can create internal stress.
Vaginal Birth After Caesarian (VBAC) and Homebirth After Caesarian (HBAC) are gaining momentum in South Africa and provision needs to be made for women seeking these options through collaboration of the medical health care systems. Preventing unnecessary caesarians by providing adequate support and information to women should be the first approach.
A woman who is respected and supported during pregnancy and childbirth, can achieve giving birth with confidence and without trauma. When we protect the rights of women in childbirth we protect their future as well as ours.
After many years of witnessing first hand and studying the current status quo of Caesarian sections in childbirth in South Africa, I am presenting a Cape Town VBAC Stats and Facts Workshop at Mtwana Birth Centre on 11th July 2016.
We as women hold within us the ultimate creative space and forces. Honouring our ‘womb’anhood enables us to gather and shape our futures and release the culmination of our creative process. When we allow ourselves to surrender to and release our power, we give birth to ourselves, our partners and our children throughout our lives.
Mother love follows on from the experience of pain during labour and birth andthe pain may be the key to the protective instinct and bonding behaviour of the mother towards her offspring
A homebirth can provide a birthing mother with the right environment for giving birth in ecstasy, for finding her power, for transcendence and beautiful memories , for changing the world.
