Publisher's Summary

Tapping your creative power for the complete journey of childbirth.
Many pregnancy guides focus on what’s going on in a mother’s body - yet our thoughts, dreams, and imagination can have the greatest impact on our experience of childbirth. Dr. Catherine Shainberg’s DreamBirth is a powerful method for using imagery to access your body’s vast creative intelligence. With DreamBirth, she presents imagery exercises created for parents and birth professionals alike, with more than 90 practices for:

Conception - easing anxiety, harmonizing with your partner, and welcoming a new life
Pregnancy - reducing physical discomfort and morning sickness, rehearsing for birth, and tuning in to your body’s needs and to your baby
Labor - minimizing medication, choosing the right professional care, and consciously monitoring each step of the birth
Bonding - feeling into your baby’s needs, nursing, and emotional connection, and supporting your child’s extraordinary life
"Women and men are life creators," teaches Dr. Shainberg. "DreamBirth reconnects us with the boundless knowledge that nature has given to us for this purpose." Join this pioneering clinician to learn imaginal methods for transforming your hopes into reality - into the birth of your dreams.

Great for Listeners vs Readers

I bought this for my daughter-in-law who prefers listening over reading after I'd read about Catherine Shainberg in an article about thinking outside the box. Researching her, I found number of YouTube interviews related to this book. Although I'm out of the childbearing years, I listened to the first section and then happily gifted a copy to my daughter-in-law. I've even found a few exercises I did myself and bookmarked to go back to in the future. I think it may be beneficial to use a slower speed or make a practice of stopping the recording periodically to experience the exercises to the fullest. I found her accent pleasant and her voice soothing.
