Are you a midwife or birth professional
and would like to train to run your own Birth Art Cafe?

“The Birth Art Café is a really good idea and good luck with it… Creative activities of these kinds will be of special help to any woman who has had a traumatic birth experience or who is anxious about birth” - Sheila Kitzinger

Find a Birth Art Cafe near you

Are you seeking for the magic answer to have a calm birth?
Are you looking for ways to be in control?
Are you wanting to avoid pain?


Unfortunately I can't promise this for you.

What I can say is that at the Birth Art Cafe you will discover
secret wisdom

of motherhood and how to access your
power
to traverse the unknown, raw and sometimes wild passage into motherhood,
however it unfolds, with
courage.


CURIOUS?

CONGRATULATIONS

You have had the courage to look out of your comfort zone into the unknown.

So have I got your attention now?

So the truth about birth is that it is an unknown journey. 
It is a rite of passage. 
You are moving into a new state of being - a baby mother. 
This is an exciting, massive and at times terrifying transition. 
The more you try to resist the change, the fear of pain or loosing control,
the more it takes hold.

On the other hand, the more you allow these feelings to be present,
the less power they have over you.

At the Birth Art Cafe, we explore all feelings, concerns and issues in a safe environment, and through relaxation and creativity,
find new ways of perceiving these issues.

If you are looking for ways to feel prepared and supported in your
journey into motherhood and beyond,
the Birth Art Cafe IS for you.

The Birth Art Cafe is for you
if you agree to any of the following:

I know nothing about art.
I am so busy I haven't had time to think about the birth/ baby.
I'm worried about giving birth/ being a good mother.
I had a diffucult birth and don't know if I can do it again.
I feel guilty/ failure I didn't have the birth I wanted.

“The Birth Art Café is an idea whose time is long overdue. Taking the time to connect more deeply with our selves which is perhaps best done by art and crafts that any woman can do, can only help us have a better birth, connect more deeply with our babies and be happier and more easeful mothers. Bravo Tamara for leading the way” (Suzanne Arms - Internationally acclaimed author, photojournalist, visionary and birth activist)

 

Pregnant Women

Another way to prepare for childbirth and motherhood in an informal setting. The workshops are booked is series of 6. Come to one series or throughout your pregnancy. These sessions can be taken in addition to or instead of any antenatal classes you are already doing. It is also possible to try one class to see if you like it.

An opportunity to explore pregnancy, birth & motherhood together. Women, traditionally, have turned to other women for advice and sustenance during pregnancy. You can take part in optional creative processes to stimulate the primitive (right) part of the brain that is active during labour and birth.

 

New Mums

To do something for yourselves. For those who want, to help integrate the birth experience through creativity and explore issues facing new mums eg feeding, sleeping, crying, exhaustion... The workshops are booked in a series of 6. Come to one series or until your baby is crawling. These sessions can be taken in addition to or instead of any antenatal classes you are already doing. It is also possible to try one class to see if you like it.

“I also wanted to thank you for listening to me, I was really overwhelmed by all the feelings that just came pouring out (about the birth). I carried on writing things down when I came home and I was quite amazed by all the feelings that I had been suppressing.... I can work on them now that I have acknowledged them.” (After a difficult birth)
