If you are currently pregnant or hoping to be sometime in the near future, horror stories of labor pain have probably popped into your head at least once. We’ve all heard them recanted by those who’ve experienced less than serene labors and deliveries. While the joy of expecting your precious little one ultimately triumphs over any concern you may have about the pain of childbirth, many are fearful of this natural process, especially if this is your first pregnancy.
Whether you were able to conceive easily or you consider yours to be a miracle pregnancy, you want things to go well, without complications and with as little stress and discomfort as possible. Where, though, can you find the answers you need when there are such conflicting opinions about which options are best, safest, most natural or available to you? You need information you can trust, from a source who has both the credentials and experience to ease your mind, spirit and body. Your baby is too precious to trust to just anyone and often conventional wisdom asks you to do that very thing.
I’m Dr. Laurie Binder LAc, RNCNP, LCCE, and Doctor of Acupuncture. I have put together two informational video resources to help expectant mothers and their birth partners understand the natural options for augmenting and enhancing both the pregnancy and the childbirth process.
Acupressure for Childbirth
My Acupressure and Breathing for Childbirth instructional video is a comprehensive compilation of the natural options available to those mothers hoping for a calm, relaxed, totally natural pregnancy and childbirth experience. Though the video’s aim is for a natural process, it supports conventional methods as well.
Using my experience as a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Class Educator, my Acupressure For Fertility and Childbirth DVDs will guide you through the entire pregnancy and childbirth experience. Whether your birth plan is geared toward a completely natural birth or more of a conventional labor and delivery, this comprehensive video will teach you the specific acupressure points and organized breathing techniques to make your birthing experience one that you and your birth partner will want to remember.
Acupressure for Fertility
In case you are in the process of trying to conceive, my comprehensive Acupressure For Fertility and Childbirth video also explains the numerous factors that play a vital role in increasing a woman’s fertility including:
• fertility acu-point location and proper stimulation
• food and lifestyle changes to increase fertility
• determine your most fertile opportunities
• meditative techniques to tranquilize stress and thereby improve fertility
Pregnancy and childbirth are natural processes which can be looked forward to with joy and anticipation rather than with anxiety and fear; however, information is key. From maintaining a healthy pregnancy to increasing labor and delivery comfort levels and so much more, the Acupressure For Fertility and Acupressure and Breathing for Childbirth DVDs provides expectant mothers the techniques and information necessary to augment whatever plan they choose and bring their pregnancy to fruition with the best possible outcome and experience.
