How brain-training can help you have a positive birth

Marie Berwald, October 2020

Hi, I'm Marie.

Here’s the brutal truth about birth prep:

Traditional prenatal classes leave women feeling scared of birth. Having a baby is already nerve-racking.  There are so many unknowns. The last thing you need is to feel more nervous and unsure of your ability to do this.  

In most birth classes, you'll spend a lot of time learning about all the things that can go wrong.   This undermines your trust in your body. It also creates fear and the expectation that something is likely to go badly.

The more fearful you feel, the more difficult labour becomes.

Why?

Labour is controlled by a complex cocktail of awesome hormones, like oxytocin (the love hormone) and endorphins (the pain blocking hormones).  Stress, worry and fear change the body's response to labour; blocking those good hormones, tightening the muscles, restricting blood flow, and making labour more painful.

Most typical childbirth classes focus on ways to lessen the pain, with comfort measures like water, doulas and peanut balls.  And yes those have their place, but focusing on that is missing the point. The pain has already been created.

So what's the alternative?  

A BRAIN-SCIENCE approach to pregnancy and birth. During pregnancy your brain is already rewiring itself. You've probably already noticed from the mood swings, cankles and "baby brain" that there are some phenomenal changes happening inside you - and not just your body. Your brain changes too. With learning, you can remodel and retrain your brain to "think different" - thereby changing the pain signals and how your brain interprets them.

Whether your ideal birth is a serene water birth, an effective epidural or a calm cesarean, every pregnant women wants a birth that she'll look back on as a positive experience.  

You need the right kind of brain training to get there! Your mind can be trained for confidence, peace and emotional resilience.  And guess what?  That training happens while you rest on your couch!

And I can teach you how to get started with a simple technique that I've perfected over years and years of teaching childbirth classes.
