The Previda Method

The Instincts you strengthen for birth are the instincts that strengthen your sense of purpose as a parent.

What is the Previda Methodology?

    • The Previda Method is the result of observing many childbirth education classes around the world and clearly seeing the deficiencies that make them outdated and ineffective. In the era of information, simply giving more information and biased information at that, is an unacceptable loss of an opportunity that we, as educators cannot justify any longer to our students.

 

    • What modern couples are asking us, at this critical time in their lives, is for guidance to connect more with their growing baby, with eachother and with their inner voice that will strengthen their sense of knowingness as a mother or father. Learning to include teaching strategies that emphasize these connections is part of what the Previda workshops cover by teaching new skills in the following 5 areas:

Innovative Ways of Teaching Basic Childbirth Education

For understanding of birth to take place, learning must come from experiencing  these ideas at a deeper level, beyond the mental construct and into the emotional, the physical and the intuitive.

To name a few of these topics:

  • How our bodies work, what happens during pregnancy, during birth, during breastfeeding, during postpartum in the female body.
  • Seeing the spectrum of  ways of being born and understanding why we feel drawn to more natural or more medicalized options.
  • Healthy lifestyle / nutrition and weight gain
  • What is a contraction? How does it feel?
  • What does fear have to do with pain?
  • Early labor, transitioning towards the hospital birth
  • Trusting the design, letting go of the control, taking a leap of faith into the unkown.
  • Making choices, negotiating your preferences and communicating effectively with authority figures.
  • The power of touch, the need for connection.
  • The first encounter with your child
  • Feeling overwhelmed after the birth: preparing for postpartum
  • Early Breastfeeding
  • Newborn Babycare  

Integrative Movement

Bilateral movements that unite the wiring in both sides of the brain as a means of interiorizing the understanding of new concepts about birth.

To name a few:  the “windmill”, the “swimmer”, “lemniskat”, balance poses, “take your shirt off”, “take and let go”

Postures that Connect

These postures are done in silence without any sense of hurriedness in order to sense the thoughts and sensations that we usually distract ourselves from and in this case, as a way of really feeling the presence of the baby.

To name a few:  “the oak pose”, the “check-in”, forehead to forehead, hand on heart, “hugging the baby”

Sensing Resistence

The  experiential awareness that comes from hearing our minds sabotage our ability to move forward when resistence arises is essential to understanding how we act under duress.  These practices are wonderful opportunities to recognize where we need to change in order for labor to not be met with the same resistance.

To  name a few:  “lateral chair pose”, arm up, arm reléase, using ice

Course Logistics

The art and science of quality childbirth education programs are based on solid and proven recommendations for the selection of topics, sequencing, clear objectives, clear philosophy and innovative and effective teaching methods, evaluation process and training strategies.
