THE BIG STRETCH is a DVD produced by Alieta Belle and Jenny Blyth that presents a fresh insight into the amazing journey each woman takes in becoming a mother.
Women in different stages of pregnancy and preparing for a natural birth reflect on how they and 'stretched' in everyway - emotionally, physically and spiritually.
You are invited to become intimately engaged, share in the transformation, and follow their stories to the first moments and days after birth.
Topics explored: breath awareness, pain and the intensity of birth, vaginal and body awareness, women's challenges, asking for help, relationship and personal transformation.
Included is a DVD extra on baby massage.
The Big Stretch DVD also comes with The Big Stretch Booklet. This 20 page booklet features questions and topics gleaned from The Big Stretch DVD, and is designed to stimulate insight and spirited discussion about birthing options, experiences and feelings.
Together the booklet and the DVD become an inspiring and valuable resource for pregnant women, their families, birth educators, midwives and all other birthworkers.
"All the positive messages about birth we women want to share with each other. Real women talking about their real experiences & insights birthing their children." Su
"Thank You! It made me cry, it made me laugh. It inspired and excited me. So many insights and messages, beautifully put together. It truly captured the amazement of birth and all the teachings that come with it. As a second time pregnant mother, this really enthused me to birth – I want to birth Now! It's so packed with info. I think I'll have to watch it over and over again to absorb it all." Sandra
