There’s More To Birth Education Than Science and Anatomy

By: Care Messer | Birth, Childbirth education, Podcast | March 21, 2024

In our second show featuring childbirth educators, we welcome Haize Hawke. Haize is a Mother, Doula, Student Midwife, Meditation Teacher, Healer, a Life Coach and Spiritual Counselor and I am blessed to call her my soul family. This conversation is much more than regular birth education and will show you just how expanded connection between your self and your partner can be.

Haize goes deep in how she focuses on “excavating” the parent relationship while in her birth classes and also during prenatal meetings with her clients. The caretakers of this new baby do so much better when they are “Team Us.” Haize talks about how having vulnerable conversations with each other and being on the same page with ideals and standards, set the stage for how you will be running your life as a central unit from here on out. Thinking through all of life’s possibilities BEFORE your baby is born, helps you find out where you are as a couple and where you will be as a parent to your new baby.

Haize also discusses the importance of slowing down during pregnancy so you can have an easier time doing so in postpartum. We are meant to have “preggo brain” so that we take more time to relax and integrate becoming a parent and reflecting on the life we are leaving behind. There is an ancient system in place within our bodies that if we don’t override it, will only serve our highest good.

And doulas- just wait until you hear how Haize sets the intention in the room for not only her clients but for each staff member as they enter the birth room. This episode is not to be missed!
