DreamBirth is a system of short, simple imagery exercises designed specifically for pregnancy and childbirth. DreamBirth® techniques are learned and practiced during pregnancy under the guidance of certified DreamBirth® practitioners. This is a method devised by psychologist and imagery teacher, Dr. Catherine Shainberg, to assist mothers, and their attendants, in finding the true richness and deep power within the birth process.
In the words of Dr. Shainberg,
“Imagery is the oldest language in the world. Pre-verbal, it communicates through pictures—and it is through these pictures that the outside world is reconstructed and displayed in our minds… Since ancient times, mystics and yogis have used images to change body temperature, heart beat, even mend broken bones. Olympic athletes use visualization to win gold medals. By creating specific images in our minds, we talk to our bodies. We can train them to respond to visual cues, enabling us to access our most hidden body functions. DreamBirth®, an imagery process uniquely geared to procreation, pregnancy, and birth gives the future mother access to this power, maximizing her body’s natural abilities to conceive, carry and give birth in perfect health. DreamBirth® optimizes women’s innate ability to give birth easily, naturally and triumphantly.“
