Body Ready MethodSM

Body-Ready-Method-Certified-Logo

I offer Body Ready MethodSM alignment and corrective sessions as an add on to my birth doula services.  During pregnancy we will work in one-on-one sessions in your home to help you optimize balance, strength and resiliency in your body to help stack the cards in your favor for the birth you are hoping to achieve. I can suggest positions and perform hands-on techniques, to create balance and space in the body to support the physiological process of birth. I can work with you in the immediate postpartum period to create a simple protocol to follow to encourage optimal recovery from pregnancy and childbirth. You can choose to have one session or three sessions – it’s completely up to you and how you feel it would help your body and birth.

Why you want to work with a Body Ready MethodSM Pro:

  • I have a deep understanding of how to help you prepare for your desired birth
  • I can help address and minimize pregnancy related aches and pains, such as back or pelvic pain
  • I can help you maintain or gain a functional core and pelvic floor
  • I can help you learn how to move during pregnancy to optimize fetal positioning
  • I understand what your baby is trying to do and the moves to help create space for baby to do it!
  • I have a deep understanding of birth positions
  • I use hands on balancing and release techniques to help create better baby positioning, space and yield
  • This work can help decrease pushing time during labor
  • I can support you into a smooth transition into recovery and postpartum

Body Ready Birth Workshop - Beginning in March

Offered in Tacoma and in Auburn!

This Body Ready Birth workshop is a one day, six-hour, class with online access to educational videos and information once the class is completed. It is best to take this class between 32-36 weeks of pregnancy but can be taken any time before or after that as well.  This class is not a comprehensive childbirth education class and I recommend taking that class too (and early in your pregnancy if possible).

This in-person Body Ready Birth workshop will help you discover how to help baby progress more easily for your most efficient birth! This class will help you: know what to do when (and why) in each stage of labor to progress smoothly; cut through the endless ‘tips and tricks’ and learn what really works; avoid trial and error during labor; have complete confidence that you know what works in your body; PLUS you’ll learn specific, hands-on techniques for your partner to use to help with progress and comfort too!

This is not an exercise class, we use mindfulness and gentle targeted movements to help your body and baby.

 

Your body was designed for this process – Help it remember how!

  • Know how you and your partner can tune into where baby is in your pelvis and let that help guide your movement
  • Practice the most effective birth positions before birth so you’re ready to intuitively find the position your body needs when it needs it
  • Create functional mobility in your pelvis to proactively address common musculoskeletal reasons for delays in labor
  • Prepare all 3 levels of the pelvis differently so you can open it for exactly where baby is during labor
  • Get your partner ready by practicing hands-on techniques together so they’re ready to support you to stay comfortable and progress through labor
  • Empower yourself to be an active part of birthing your baby and stack the cards in your favor for a more efficient birthing process

With this class you get:

  • 6 hours of in-person class time to learn and practice functional movement
  • Learn hands-on techniques to practice with your partner so they are comfortable with them too
  • Time with me, a certified Body Ready Method Pro, to ask questions and gain knowledge
  • Online access to targeted birth training videos to easily continue to practice at home and create that muscle-brain connection
  • Online access to movement videos to prepare each level of the pelvis
  • Online access to printable handouts to have with you in labor
  • Lifetime access to the online platform

This wisdom is already inside your body and I am here to help you access it!

Partners are welcomed and encouraged so they can learn the hands-on techniques to help you during labor.

Cost $175 per couple
