What is the yoga birth method?
The Yoga Birth Method is an 8 step birthing pathway that empowers women through a natural and mindful childbirth experience. YBM's philosophy is for the mother to connect with her baby during childbirth and to engage in her labor as an experience of enlightenment. A very specific sequence of breathing and postures adapted to the physical and emotional changes in the stages of labor enable women to manage contractions from a calm, meditative and controlled perspective.
What is the purpose of the yoga birth method?
The Purpose of The Yoga Birth Method is to give women an opportunity to embrace childbirth as a natural and joyful experience. How a woman gives birth becomes her birth story and that birth story is shared each time she reflects on the birth of her child. YBM was founded by Dorothy as a way to give women the best birth story possible. Yoga is an ancient practice of breathing, movement and mindful awareness that invokes personal wellbeing and stress free living. This method applied to childbirth gives women the exact same experience during the challenges of labor.
How does it work?
There are 8 steps that a woman uses. By following the 8 steps she does not need to "try" to manage contractions, the pathway is a natural progression of mindful awareness of birth intentions, movement that aligns mother's pelvis to baby's cardinal birthing movements and breathing strategies that manage the physical exertion in the first stage of labor. When she is using the sequence in labor it becomes a natural and effortless embodiment of meditation
