Are you wondering about natural birth preparation?
While teaching prenatal yoga, I became interested in the different ways to prepare the body and mind for labor. In this e-book, I share the tips, tools and thoughts from my yoga and dance background that were helpful for me in preparation for labor in view of natural childbirth.
I’ve included all the tools and exercises that were helpful for me in both of my pregnancies and that carried me through my 2, not pain-free, but manageable natural labors!:
- pain management techniques,
- relaxation exercises and
- mental preparation tips
Prepare your body and mind for labor
Labor and birth are a mystery, but welcoming what arises and “letting labor happen” were what helped me in both of my experiences. Fear held me back in my first labor, but when I understood that the pain was normal, this helped me let go and let my body relax.

It’s been truly a very helpful resource to put at rest many of my last minute concerns and doubts, and a very hilarious one at that. Loved the humour and the cute stick figure diagrams as well, along with your exuberant positive outlook at enjoying pregnancy! – Sangu
There is so much birth wisdom and love shared in this ebook! Myriam does a fantastic job of walking you through the elements of preparing yourself for childbirth. Not only does she explain why, but also gives multiple examples on how to do each suggestion. I love the quotes and affirmations that are included throughout to help you positively train your mind during pregnancy – a really important part of birth preparation that is often over looked. As a mama of 4, I wish an amazing resource like this would have been available when I was preparing for my births! – Lisa
