Review quote

"The creative imagery expertise and medical background of School of Images founder Shainberg (Kabbalah and the Power of Dreaming) joins with the wisdom of seven compassionate birth professionals in this practical, comprehensive guidebook that offers 161 targeted visualizations to address almost every situation likely to arise during pregnancy and childbirth.Shainberg comes across as a caring and trustworthy guide, offering the reins to the mother to consciously direct her experience during labor and delivery. Exercises focused on communicating with the unborn child, for both parents, will help families feel bonded well before the birth...Shainberg gives the birthing woman comfort and control as she accesses her own wisdom." -"Publisher's Weekly " "DreamBirth is a gift to the parents of the future and a much-needed medicine to transform our current birth culture from fear to freedom. A most beautiful and useful book!" -Christiane Northrup, MD, OB/GYN Author of the New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause "An exceptional resource for nourishing the inner life of mother and baby, building the warm loving connection that will enhance labor and birth and make mothering easy and pleasurable." -Sarah J. Buckley, MD Author of Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering "DreamBirth is just what has been missing from the Pregnancy and Birth section of bookstores. In DreamBirth, Shainberg paints glorious pictures, from conception to the first smile, enabling each woman to call upon her inner guidance and yield to the powerful force of nature, letting her baby descend, turn, emerge, and attach in the way that every baby can, without the interference of fear. Shainberg's easy-to-follow meditations are the perfect preparation for parents and an incredible sourcebook for practitioners." -Barbara Harper, RN of Waterbirth International Author of Gentle Birth Choices "Full of sound advice and practical exercises, DreamBirth opens many doors for a profound shift in perception, seeing pregnancy as not only a mechanical, physiological process, but as an opportunity to know the joy and magic of creation." -Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova Founder of Birth Into Being "Shainberg, like Julia Cameron in The Artist's Way, offers the tools to ignite a deep-seated creativity, one that feeds not only the mind, but the soul." -PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "Catherine Shainberg is a profound spiritual teacher ..." -ROBERT MOSS Author of Dreamways of the Iroquoisshow more
