Pregnancy and childbirth are obviously physical events, but they are much more than that - they represent a major life transition. The changes that occur with pregnancy and childbirth affect your whole life: your identity, your relationships, your values, and your beliefs. So it makes sense to consider body, mind, and spirit during your pregnancy and childbirth.
A holistic approach can help you:
- Have the healthiest pregnancy possible
- Achieve the best possible overall wellbeing during pregnancy
- Increase your chances for a natural progression of labor
- Alleviate the risks posed by pain meds and other medical interventions
