Stress during pregnancy affects the development of the baby before and after birth. Covid 19 has increased the stressors to pregnant women, and needs to be mitigated by increased support systems and strategies.
Women spend years learning to behave in certain ways in order to ‘fit in’ to society. Giving Birth acts as a gateway to rediscover blocked parts of the self that enable a woman to reclaim her life force.
Traditionally we have thought that babies had only 5 senses and that they only started learning after birth. Research is beginning to show that babies use many senses to gather information, even before birth.
The recent crash of a Germanwings airbus by Andreas Lubnitz elicits disturbing questions and deeper examination of the factors underlying this event.
Marianne is hosting a Spiritual Birth Workshop in Scarborough, Cape Town on the weekend of the 16th and 17th February 2013. With a panoramic view of nature and the ocean, this idyllic location is a perfect place in which to explore the spiritual effects of natural birth!
The period of our lives that has the most impact on our personality and adult health is the period we spend in the womb. Preparing ourselves for pregnancy and bonding with our unborn babies prior to birth will help to safeguard their emotional, physical and mental health, and our relationships with them.
Marianne will be presenting a Natural Birth workshop on the eighth and ninth of December 2012, at Passionate Births in Hilton, Pietermaritzburg. Register now for your chance to experience this uplifting and educational workshop on natural birth.
