ABOUT CONCEPTION & BIRTH

By Marina & Colin
December 2011

Here's the idea: Conception and pregnancy are natural processes. You probably didn't use a book of meditations and exercises to conceive and stay pregnant. Birth is a natural process also although you wouldn't know it if you carefully observe the birth industry that's in place in our hospitals and clinics.

Your body and baby know what to do when it's delivery time. Do you trust your body? Does your midwife or doctor trust your body? The role of these practices is to bring your mind more into the harmony that is inherent in a conscious pregnancy and delivery.

Marina says that some of her most satisfying midwife experiences have come from couples that learned from her and had healthy home water births without her presence. "You got pregnant without me! You can give birth without me! That's the best!" This is not declared lightly; these are couples who dedicated themselves to the practices and informed themselves about birth. This does not necessarily mean that they concentrated on what could go wrong during delivery. They simply worked on the body with Iron Shirt Chi Kung to encourage what the woman's body already knows about pregnancy and birth. They used the meditations to focus the mind in trust of the healthy body and natural process. Some couples chose to deliver their baby alone without Marina and some simply found themselves in the delivery situation and no midwife or doctor in sight!

Regardless of your choice of how to birth you can enjoy your pregnancy even more with the tools Marina can provide you. Many of these practices survive from ancient Taoist sources because they are so effective at improving health and reducing stress. When a pregnant woman does this she passes the improved health and vitality on to her developing baby. When a couple learns how to properly make love during pregnancy this loving, orgasmic vibration is passed on to baby. What better way to begin 'sex education'!
