This module introduces what we consider to be the most important topic of the Shakti birth preparation series. The effectiveness of all other physical, emotional, and mental birth preparation is rooted in utilizing what we know about how the nervous system works. Whether the practice is asana, saying affirmations, reading birth stories, or learning breathing techniques, the benefits are all dependant on the nervous system being activated in a way that promotes healthier pregnancy, and easier birthing.
Module three is organized much like the previous two, however it is here that the process of truly understanding how this program accomplishes its goals begins. Watch the video and then carefully read the topic summary to review and solidify understanding of the content. We recommend that your birth partner also read the nervous system and birth section. When your birth supports understand what the nervous system needs for easier birthing they are better equipped help you receive it.
