The idea of creating "SoundBirth Practitioners" was born when some of the pregnant women I was talking to about SoundBirth were asking me if someone else could play the bowl for them because a) their partner didn't want to play the bowl for whatever reason; b) the woman preferred her partner to be doing other things like holding her hand or giving her a massage or c) the couple didn't want to purchase a crystal singing bowl.
I also found that birth professionals and sound therapists were interested in adding this tool to their birth bag full of tricks so I decided to go ahead and create a SoundBirth Practitioner Training.
Some of the Soundbirth Practitioners have more of a birth background and some have more of a sound background which they will share with you on my website (when I get around to doing this!). But either way they have all been trained by myself either in person or online so they know how to support you using their voice and a crystal singing bowl!
What are the Main Benefits of Hiring a SoundBirth Practitioner?
What SoundBirth Practitioners Will Not Do?
1. SoundBirth Practitioners are not required to give advice about any birth decisions. This is up to you and your chosen midwife and/or obstetrician.
2. SoundBirth Practitioners won't be giving you massages or using other birth techniques while they are in the role of "SoundBirth Practitioner". They will be too busy playing the the bowl for you. Plus some of them are not trained birth professionals.
So there you go!
