When Wellness Meets Birth Activism with Kemi Johnson

Feb 24, 2022

As a therapist I always ask clients about their own births as it is clear the affect it has on the physical structures or the body as well as the physiology.

Birth is a massive event in your life – your own birth and the birth of your children but what if it could be a positive rite of passage (or even orgasmic) rather than something to fear.

Have you ever considered just how much your own birth has impacted your life, your choices, your mental health as a child and all the way into adulthood?

What if it could have been different? What would the impact of this be on the world when it is such a fundamental event in life.

There is a huge amount of evidence to show how significant  birth is – for the whole family and our communities at large.

In this weeks episode I am talking with the magnificent Kemi Johnson – an expert in the birth world – an activist, educator, birth nerd and birth keeper.

In this powerful episode we talk about:

The impact and trauma of c section on the body – every layer of the body is cut into and this is more significant, affecting your baby and your own body in ways you may not have realised are linked.

The power of Bowen technique (which I teach on the sacred Health training) for the whole family and how it positively impacts babies health.

What is Industrialised birthing and what a birth looks like when there is real choice and autonomy.

Impact of birth on body and first breath – the links to anxiety and function.

We talk about the anatomy of the breasts and specifically them being an extension of the heart.

What it looks like to birth outside of the system and how complimentary therapies such as Bowen are vital for everyone .

Come over to Instagram and let me know what you learnt  after listening to this episode and if you want to be able to work with babies and whole families using light touch get in touch.
