The Mamabamba way

There is richness and magic in birth. Yet because we are afraid of its pain and power we turn our backs on it, choosing instead to sanitise it and strip it of feeling through medical interventions.

Yet birth is a peak experience that has the potential to transform us, and birthing with conscious awareness offers our children an initial experience of life where they are shown that they need not be afraid – that life in all its intensity is something to embrace, laugh with, cry about and cherish.

The stories, meditations and lived experience in this book are powerful wisdom for expecting parents. It shows us concretely how to relax into, accept and transform the fear and pain of birth by coming back to the present moment to be aware of our body and mind.
