Change the world

Changing the World from a Woman’s Perspective

There is always a lot of talk about how we can change the world and specifically how we can do this from a woman’s perspective? So many wonderful ideas and thoughts shared, looking at where change can happen. I wholeheartedly support discussion and action. In my eyes, a woman’s voice must always be placed on the round table of discussion. I have been saying this for a very long time. […]

Reduce birth trauma

Reduce Birth Trauma – Heal and Support Mothers

I want to share an insight with you all as an Independent Childbirth Educator, that on my 55th birthday has called me to reveal as a concern of mine. It may be challenging as a point of view due to it being  a very emotionally delicate topic, yet I trust it needs to be raised as food for thought and a legitimate lens of inquiry. With sensitivity, let’s address the […]

Getting free from birth fear

Modern Epidemic: Getting Free from Birth Fear – My Experiences in Byron Bay in the 1990’s

In 1996 when I was pregnant with my first son Kailash, I was living in the capital of Australia’s home birth scene, Byron Bay. At the time I attended a voluntary pregnancy support group that had supported hundreds of families over 15 years since its inception and continue to support them to today.

“Physiology and Herstory” meets “the science”.

What is the best global attitude that is needed to inform pregnant mothers for birthing? These truths that each woman inherently knows within her body, the body that she has been connected with from pre birth and birth. Herstory birth body that follows the mother line – the thread of unbroken wisdom that when trusted provides many answers on the journey. Are we supporting reliance on her inner body wisdom or […]

In Utero Resonance – A Spiritual View Of The Mother and Baby Dance –

Lately I have been thinking alot about the real, raw and wildly powerful sensory experience that I delved in to when my babies were in utero.’Utero Resonance’ The mother / baby resonance that is in general, often neglected by mainstream society when we address the pregnancy/birth experience yet in my own journey this resonance gave me the basis of connection with my babies that informed and influenced our birth experience.

Science of Mother and Baby

Science of Mother and Baby

“Science mother baby”, When it comes to pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting I see that there has been a huge lean toward proving things scientifically and via evidence based knowledge. I, like many, am very interested in how science and evidence configures in our understanding of the birth and beyond field. It is valuable to have these pillars to support our deeper understanding if we are looking through the lens […]

belly dance

A Birth Secret – Women aren’t meant to give birth on their backs.

“A Birth Secret” Women aren’t meant to give birth on their backs.  It just doesn’t work as well!  Throughout the ages and throughout the world, women have moved, swayed, squatted, and danced through their labor.  In the Middle Eastern culture I come from, that movement is whats been coined “belly dance”.  It is a sensual dance that helps the birthing mother move in a way that opens her body – […]

What can birth keepers do about birth fear?

Birth fear what can be done about it? I have been having many conversations of late with various birth professionals and there is a running theme that rises through our conversations that I didn’t experience to this extent even 2-3 years ago.

Hijacking the birth limelight from mother and baby.

Hijacking birth limelight This is a very real and at times challenging ideology to present to birth professionals, OB’s, Dr’s, educators and teachers because of the hidden nature of their own deep birth wounding that can play in the shadows of their psyche. The way I see childbirth education is that it must take the best aspects of the essence and feel of traditional women’s wisdom and knowing that used […]
