Why Bhava Birth?
BECAUSE you value research and evidence based practices.
BECAUSE you believe that birth doesn't have to be painful, scary, or traumatic.
BECAUSE you've tried other courses or methods and didn't find exactly what you were looking for.
BECAUSE you want to prepare for birth not just mentally, but emotionally, physically & spiritually, too.
BECAUSE you are well-acquainted with grief and want more coping tools before, during, and after birth.
BECAUSE you're not interested in learning a rigid method, but want to tap in to your own power & intuition.
because how you FEEL about your birth matters as much as the OUTCOMES
This course is for lovers of Eastern wisdom & Western research, who see the world through a holistic lens, who consider birth to be a spiritually enriching experience, and want more tools to successfully navigate
their entire childbirth process.
What does "bhava" mean?
Formerly known as Bodhi Birth, this course takes its name from the Sanskrit word BHAVA
which means "becoming," and if spelled BHAVAH can also mean "to give birth."
Buddhists define it as the growth we experience within the cycle of life, death, and rebirth.
birth is a metamorphosis
Like a caterpillar in its chrysalis that emerges a butterfly,
childbirth is an opportunity to discover your wings, to heal your life, and to experience your own rebirth.
How you approach your childbirth experience will serve as a template for the rest of your life.
When you discover your voice in the labor room, you have it forever.
birthing is becoming
