This circle will be an opportunity for pregnant women to experience the intimacy and empowerment of sharing their process with other women, in a safe and gentle environment.
Pascale will take you into the journey of giving birth according to how nature intended it. Participants will get tools, practices and knowledge that will help them allow instinct and intuition to guide them, thus enabling to become more aware of the physiological needs of their own body and ultimately allowing the process of birth to unfold naturally, with confidence and trust.

- Physiological birth rehearsal through visualization
- Making contact with the baby
- Exploring breathing techniques & vocalization
- Movements and positions to facilitate the first stage
- Perineum and pelvic release exercise
- Supported positions for the second stage
- Breathing and relaxation techniques for coping with strong sensations
- Passive & active bearing
There will be an opening and closing and space for questions and sharing.
