From Love To Life

The Supernice Hands-On Personalized Birth Education And Baby-Welcoming Experience For Becoming Parents OR How To Get From Biomechanics And Physiology Through Touch And Presence And Arrive At Bonding.

Analog Or Online Personalized Parent Course  w/ Camalo & Marcello

This 6-OR 3-session course extends over the months of your pregnancy with the option for in-person or remote accompaniment during your labor and birth. It is intended to provide a hands-on experience for parents to learn useful aspects of the birth experience.

While the main focus is on bringing calm and ease to the mind and body through daily practices –– because every parent benefits from being aware of how their birthing body works or doesn’t work –– we do provide very useful and not-commonly-taught foundations in childbirth physiology, anatomy, bio-mechanics, medical approaches, proven comfort measures and a landscape of bodywork practices that help you develop stability and intimacy during the transformational journey from being a couple to being a family.

What you’ll learn:

– How babies are born
– How we move in labor
– What you need to know about resolving common discomforts in pregnancy and birth
– Relevant anatomy and bio-mechanics of pregnancy, labor, birth and newborn life
– How a balanced body translates into physical and psycho-emotional well-being
– Hands-on guidance by a pregnancy and birth experienced Fasciatherapist (MDB): techniques for partners to create the conditions for comfort and balance to the pregnant and birthing body and basic, but essential, techniques to rebalance the female pelvis and facilitate optimal fetal positioning
– How partner becomes a grounding and efficient hands-on labor-support
– Postnatal baby-mama bonding facilitation
– Active meditations to cope with stressful situations, including pregnancy anxieties, long labors, preparation for cesareans, fear of the unknown, etc.
– Access to ask questions about the lived experience of actually giving birth and approaches to make it a more optimal transition
– How to ask pertinent questions to your other care providers.

Together we will create the conditions for you to experience:

– Bonding with your partner
– Preparation that enables partners to feel confident, in preparing their body-mind for an optimal pregnancy, and in the event that they are left alone for longer periods of their labor with useful guidance to know when and how to move, touch and/or to *just be* during a labor
– Partners will experience a sense of informed ease, instead of insecurity when alone in pregnancy, in labor, and with their newborn

What you need:

– Set aside 3 hours (with a buffer for introductions and closing questions)
– Snacks and water to ensure pregnant partner feels steady
– Notebooks for capturing insights or questions
– Comfortable clothes
– Sofa & Cushions (or similar)
– Time to be present

If you are two, we guide you in going on a journey together, if you are alone in this we provide you with what you need in order for you to be as strong and connected as possible …together we create the conditions for a journey into an intimate experience.

What people say:

“Marcello and Camalo are a powerful team. The fascia session was deeply liberating. The treatment did not only help my body to let go of all the tension I had accumulated during the past pregnancy months, but it calmed my mind too. In addition, they taught my partner and I vitalizing practices to prepare for labor.”

– IMOGEN MINTON, MIDWIFE

“Camalo engages with birth at a global level in ways absolutely unique in the Berlin birth world. She allows the nuance in each birth story to be self-so. She approaches birth without fear or judgement. And she is dedicated to this work at a soul level.”

“I think this information that Camalo is presenting is NEED TO KNOW info.”
