About:

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26th 2023 10 - 11:30 AM PST, VIA LIVE ZOOM In general, we strive to be people other people can like, and get along easily with. However, in order to be in "good" relationships with other humans, a common experience of life is one where we have been taught it is selfish to center our needs, it is not okay to take up too much space, and it is too risky to firmly voice our no. We are constantly being pushed, in overt & subliminal ways, to shrink, conform, and erase ourselves in order to belong to a group, to receive help & care, to mitigate threats of harm, and ensure safety. The anxiety that builds under these pressures is immense. Over-time, this narrows our ability to trust ourselves, and trust the cues of the world around us. This dynamic becomes especially heightened when we move through pregnancy and birth. Becoming occupied for the well-being of not only ourselves, but the new human we are growing, catapults us into more complex ways of relating. There are many voices present that are not ours; that of our partner/non-gestational parent, potentially our in-laws, extended family, friends, not to mention care providers, and their authority system. And then, amid all those voices, we are asked to move forward with decisions that we are fully accountable for regarding the outcome. It can be easy to just want to go with the flow and say yes to whatever! But, where is your voice in all that? In this 1.5 hour experimental workshop, we will explore that and so much more: - Learn more about the biological & somatic impulses behind people pleasing & fawning strategies and the structural & systemic oppression that supports these behaviors - Via guided meditation explore your personal why behind developing people pleasing strategies and how you erase yourself - Via a somatic exercise, understand and become more familiar with your embodied yes & no - In breakout rooms utilize the container to share what came up for you during the guided meditation and somatic exercise - Express fears & anxieties around how people pleasing may arise for you in pregnancy, labor, and/or postpartum Every participant will be given a PDF outlining ways to navigate difficult conversations with care providers. This is a workshop for pregnant women and people, their partners, for Doulas and birth workers, childbirth educators, and anyone dedicated to serving this initiation If you need a payment plan, please email me: thelanguageofbirth@gmail.com
