March classes

Please join us for the following FREE classes

Pregnancy Guided Meditation
March 9th
 at 5:30-6:30 pm

Come and join us for a calm and relaxing hour in which you will quiet your mind and turn within, to create a deeper connection and awareness to your changing body and growing baby.

It is often hard to find a moment to slow down, sit quietly, listen to your body and your intuition and especially connect to the baby growing inside you. This guided meditation will provide you with the opportunity to be present in the moment and enjoy your pregnancy at a deeper level. Your partner, should he choose to come, can join you in the journey of the guided meditation and relaxation offering an opportunity to connect with you and your baby in a more profound way.

Stay after for a short Q&A to discover ways to create the pregnancy and birth you desire.

Meditations will usually be held on the first Tuesday of the month at 10 am and on the 2nd Monday of the month at 5:30 pm. Please be sure to check the schedule for any changes.

Intervention Intelligence Class
 March 23rd 6:30-8:30 pm

This class will discuss common medical interventions in pregnancy and labor, as well as newborn procedures. If you plan to give birth in the hospital you need to know: what interventions are done and what procedures are followed, why they are done, what the benefits and risks are, which ones are optional, and how to go about making the best decision for yourself and your baby. Recognize that you have choices, discover what a respectful birth is for you, and learn about different philosophies and techniques for comfortable childbirth. This way you can make informed decisions and play an active role in your birth experience.

This class will usually be held on the 4th Monday of the month at 6:30 pm. Please be sure to check the schedule for any changes.

Both classes will be held at The Red Tent in Boca Raton
4838 Northwest Boca Raton Boulevard, 
Boca Raton, FL 33431
PH: (561) 865-5791
For more information and to reserve a spot please call 561 808 3142

A wonderful birth!

I have a wonderful birth to share with you and information on classes being held.

I had the pleasure of getting back into the swing of things this new year with one of the most beautiful and sweetest births I have ever had the honor of serving. Luckily it seams that more and more clients are making informed decisions that help them create the birth they want. This last birth was with a repeat client who had a previous difficult hospital birth. With that experience behind them they decided to have a home birth with respectful midwives which lead to a sweet, gentle and fast birth. What does that mean? It means doing what the mother wants, being in the position she wants and were she wants, spontaneous pushing (never told how and and how hard to push), in an upright position as the baby is being born, as the baby gently emerges (no pulling on the head), baby guided into the mother's arms by the mother's hands, while leaning on dad, no suction, no hat, placenta is birthed on its own, the the cord is cut with no hurry, skin to skin, low lights, and taking a moment to take it all in. It truly is so beautiful to witness such a miracle, I feel so blessed!
In addition to accompanying women and their partner's in pregnancy and birth I feel it is very important to create a good foundation for a relaxing and trusting birth. That is one of the reasons I enjoy offering pregnancy meditation and childbirth education classes, to help women create that foundation for the birth they want.
We had our first guided meditation on February 3rd, with the company of some lovely pregnant women. In the Childbirth Education tab are the classes and meditations offered the rest of this month. You can also register here. I hope you can join us and that you help us get the word out to help create even more loving births!
As always, thank you for your love and support,
Zeresh, CD, CBE, M.Ed.
