The Science Behind a Positive Birth: Understanding the Five Elements

By: Care Messer | Childbirth education, Hypnobirthing, Podcast | November 2, 2023

Today Ashley and I discuss the five universal elements of birth. After watching these tools work so well for our Hypnobirthing students and doula clients – we need to talk about it! The use of setting yourself with these 5 things will create an optimal birth experience regardless of whether the birth is medicated, unmedicated or surgical. The work of obstetrician Michel Odent has truly taken us back to our roots. At the end of the show, we will give you practical tips on how to use them in your labor and even postpartum. This is the link for the eye mask we use in our classes and with our clients.
