Introduction

The Birth Art Café is a new concept in enriching the experience of preparing for childbirth and motherhood by exploring the motherhood journey and connecting with one’s own inner wisdom through meditation and making art.


The Birth Art CaféTM is a new concept in enriching the experience of preparing for childbirth and motherhood. Participants are encouraged to explore the motherhood journey through relaxation and creativity in order to connect with their intuition and inner wisdom. Participants find it takes them to a completely different level of empowerment and perspective which is only possible when the rational thinking brain is given a back seat.

Although conventional childbirth education has an important role in helping women make important choices and decisions, it is not the left, rational, logical side of the brain that actually gives birth. By actively participating in creative processes, women (and partners) have the opportunity to connect to their creative, instinctual right side of the brain that is active in birth - the part of one’s being that is beyond the mind that cannot be accessed by thinking or reading books.

The two possible routes of training in Birth Art are:

  • For those with a general interest in Birth Art, Day1will give the participants insight into the reasons for using art during pregnancy and mother with babes-in-arms phase and how it can make a difference in the unfoldment of pregnancy and birth, and also the ease of transition into motherhood.
  • For those wanting to run a Birth Art Café, on Days 2 and 3, there will be training in how to set up the Birth Art Café from a practical, inner and personal perspective. The training is very much hands on and experiential giving the participants the tools and confidence necessary to set up and run a Birth Art Café.

"As we twelve shared and learnt and laboured together, I felt such a sense of ancient wisdom and connection flowing between us. Each tear & giggle brought us closer together and closer to the 'birth'. I 'birthed' a new me during our meditation, when my heart opened, and I heard and knew that all I had to do was accept myself as perfect for that moment.... The magic rose from within in and shone... I felt honoured and blessed to be part of this training and know that it will impact my clients as strongly as it has done me." Lisa Mansour, Breastfeeding Counsellor

Goals
