Preparing yourelf for Pregnancy and Childbirth - on Saturday, January 9th 1999

Despite the fact that medical care is "better than ever before", we are as a race full of more disease and degeneration than ever. Planned pregnancy is the best way to insure that the mother and baby are in optimum health.

When the mother prepares her vessel for conception by cleansing both her body and mind she consciosly raises her vibration to call in an enlightened soul. Once pregnant she nourishes the new soul with a high quality diet as well as with uplifting thoughts of beauty and tranquility to guide both her and baby through an easy pregnancy and birth.

Childbirth preparation gives a woman the necessary tools that she will need during her labor, and for her days as a new mother. The more information that she knows the better she is able to cope with the demands made from her changing body and emotions that come with this new phase of life.
