It is often believed that relaxation is a special technique.  Entire childbirth "methods" have been founded on different styles of relaxation.  I want to let you in on a little secret, though....  ready for it?

Relaxation is a state of mind.  Duh, right?  But, think about it for a moment.  It isn't a technique - it is the ability to tell your body "OK, we can do this" in any setting at any moment.  For more about the art of relaxation, take a look at this Esali Reflections...

What is an Esali Reflection?  Sometimes a conversation or thought inspires me during nap time, in the morning at breakfast when I haven't even showered, in the evening before bed... anytime... and I want to share that thought with you - like calling up an old friend or a nice afternoon visit from a neighbor.  No fancy video work here - just friend to friend - you me and a cup of tea... because we can't always sit over my table, but we can enjoy a few moments with the marvels of modern technology.

Esali Birth is a perinatal and birth philosophy. Start calling this a “Childbirth Method,” and you’ve instantly downgraded the quality of education and importance of an Esali Birth course. Anyone can have a baby, but unless you’re taking a responsible role and actively creating your perinatal experience, not everyone can have a healthy birth experience. Yes, there are many instances where birth is not perfect, and birth is not meant to be perfect. Like pooping, it is really just another natural bodily function that has a variety of outcomes and small yet significant ways it can be changed. Only this particular function has a lasting impact on your life, your baby’s life, your partner’s life, and any other person connceted to that child.



Tell me your story. I'd love to help you have a happy healthy birth!
