About Dreambirth®




What is Dreambirth® imagery?

What is DreamBirth® Imagery?  In short, It is a compilation of many, many hundreds of imagination exercises , short visualizations, that take less than a minute to do, and deal with every aspect of conception (including attracting a partner!), pregnancy, childbirth and early mothering. They are very short, easy and fun to do, can be done anywhere and they have the ability to affect your body, your emotions, your mind, and even the people you love and those around you.  The exercises are extraordinary, almost magical in their power, and in how they make you feel.



What mothers are saying


I visited him in my womb and saw him bright eyed and laughing. He looks just as I used to picture him. I tried to fill him with light while working to sever connections to painful feelings and old habits that were not serving me or him. I could not have gotten through the birth without the vision of us in our garden, working together to bring him out as his own, into hands of light.

I learned to speak to my baby and she to me, so much so that , I could feel what day I may expect her to arrive. And sure enough, she was ready to go, and came into this world so quickly! Without all of the mental preparation and imagery techniques, I don’t know how we would have done this as quickly and as calmly as we had.
