Four main advantages that set Yaya Guru apart from just about any other childbirth course is that these classes are:
up to date
Being independent means that no hospital or care provider is paying me. I am not censored in teaching, nor do I have a vested interest in “selling” you any procedures because of someone else’s policies. This also means that content is more in depth than contracted educator’s. You will receive more unfiltered, concentrated information and heart than from a hospital sponsored or even from other 'methods' that train and contract with educators.
Birth practices and findings sometimes change rapidly, which is why staying up to date is a high priority for Yaya Guru. No waiting for materials and content to go up the chain, get approved, and then updated like most other childbirth educators. I stay well informed of current research findings, make it a point to stay well read, attend conferences, network with local birth professionals, and volunteer with childbirth organizations.
And because I am also a holistic professional, you get the advantages that that knowledge brings to the birth year. Allopathic medicine has very few methods to avoid, treat, and remedy ailments and complications without putting assuming some major risks. On the other hand, holistic medicine offers time tested, reliable, safe and affordable methods to create health and wellbeing during pregnancy and beyond. As the author of The Way of the Peaceful Birther, I firmly believe that the birth year can and should be a peaceful, empowering experience no matter the outcome, and that fear and anger have no place in birth. Yaya Guru is a process, not a method, and offers a unique approach to the integration of mind, body and spirit. My goal is to help you approach your experience peacefully, that facilitates your innate knowledge and inform you of all your options for maternity care, birthplace and parenting choices.
I also have a firm belief that the most likely way to acheive the safest, most satisfying birth is through the applying the principals of gospel of Jesus Christ and making Him the center of your experience. If you choose to spiritually enter into this experience with your whole heart, I testify that you can uncover an amazing amount of hidden treasures of knowledge, that will impact the level of safety as well as satisfaction you desire.
