Words to Describe Birth

Updated: Sep 8, 2022

When it comes to describing birth, do you find yourself running out of words?

Birth is an experience that many struggle to find the right words to describe EXQUISITE capacity to touch every aspect of your life.

The term ineffable can be used to describe the INTENSE EXPERIENCE OF PURE LOVE; the overwhelming surge of joy felt by new parents - truly ineffable.

The same term can also be used to describe the UNADULTERATED ELATION you felt when that long-awaited positive line on a pregnancy test emerged, signalling you that your life will be forever changed.

Anything ineffable is unspeakably beautiful, or moving.

It’s beyond expression.

Something so powerful or emotional that you can't even describe it, it’s ineffable.

Ineffable remains one of my most loved words to describe the DELICIOUS SENSATIONS elicited when we dive deeply into our plush somatic practices - the exquisite entwining of intentional breathing with languid rhythmic movement.

I love the way immersing in these practices -

- Down regulates the nervous system;

- Opens the gateway to surges of dreamy birthing hormones;

- Transports rooms full of women into accessing the transcendent state of deep labour;

- Tasting and feeling all of these sensations in a place of loving guidance;

- Building deep familiarity and comfort in how birth CAN FEEL; and

- Creating profound, embodied birthing confidence.

As I write this, words feel barely enough to describe the luxe experience - simply Ineffable!!.
