Myofascial Release Therapy

Fascia massage technique to relax and hydrate the connective tissue, so that there is room for the baby in the womb.

FasciaFlow stands for letting go of physical tension/injuries as well as thoughts and patterns (such as traumas) that get stuck in the body. Through a combination of different treatment techniques, old patterns are broken and the self-healing capacity of the body is addressed. With this, body and mind release tension and you can move pain-free and relaxed again.

TIPS FOR PREGNANCY BOOKS

Mindful Birth – Nancy Bardacke (US)
'Mindful birth' applies the power of the increasingly well-known mindfulness training to pregnancy and childbirth. American obstetrician Nancy Bardacke provides insights and information about mindfulness, meditation techniques, yoga exercises and pain management. I would definitely recommend this book if you are a bit anxious about childbirth or are plagued by anxious thoughts during your pregnancy. Mindfulness helps you experience and appreciate your pregnancy and delivery in this moment.

Free Birth – Anna Myrte Korteweg
Despite the somewhat critical view of the author/doula on Dutch hospitals and obstetrics, this book provides a nice overview of what you can do and experience yourself in the field of natural birth. From a holistic obstetrician to a lotus birth; everything comes along.

Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond – Francoise Freedman (UK in English)
This book, written by Birthlight UK founder and my teacher Francoise Freedman, contains step-by-step yoga poses, relaxation and breathing exercises specially adapted for each trimester of pregnancy.

Giving birth on its own – Wendy Schouten
I personally find part 3 of this book (The Golden Tips for a natural childbirth) very strong. Fortunately, this is a large part of the book (the earlier parts are accounts of her own experiences during her four deliveries).
