Join me on an enchanting quest from Womb to World: starting with an oxytocin-fuelled boat ride across the waves of Pre-Labour Seas to the golden shores of First Stage Sands.
Smell the wildflowers of Early Labour Meadow as you take a walk at sunrise, then gain pace as you climb Active Labour Hill. Brave the heights of Transition Peaks, then enjoy a well-deserved rest whilst you float gently past the ducks on Take-a-break Lake. After your boat ride, catch the steam train at Second Stage Station, as you descend into Down-Breathing Dells.
Disembark from your carriage to cross Rainbow Birth Bridge and fall in love with your baby as you soak up the oxytocin under the womb-like glow of sunset in Golden Hour Skies.
On the final stretch your journey takes you into the Third Stage of Placenta Plains, where you follow the umbilical cord path until you reach the lofty heights of Congratulations Kingdom.
A fun and informative tool for pregnant women and birthing people, doulas, birthkeepers and hypnobirthing teachers to introduce an idea of how the flow of birth may occur, and some of the comfort measures that might be helpful during each stage.
