I have studied Midwifery in Czech Republic. Following Psychotherapeutical studies that I finished by master thesis concerning “Birth trauma and how do women that undergo it, cope with it”. My Master of Science Midwifery degree took place partly in Amsterdam and Glasgow. Within the scope of my practice as a holistic practitioner (midwife, psychotherapist, body and shiatsu practitioner),belongs guiding women throught the transition of birthing process,also through period of pregnancy and postpartum.The predictive, complex and preventive point of view on the topic of birthing, brought me to realising that there are huge gaps and spaces for improvements within the Health care system of Care Having psychotherapeutical training in Systemic Approach brought me to finding a healing potential of Birth. As a co-founder of APODAC (Association for Birth houses and centres), I am involved in international researches and cooperation programs that work on developing new aproaches towards Childbirth

Transformative Power of a Birthing process – Beyond Life and Death through transitional experience

I would like to present and share my professional experiences in BEING PRESENT AT A BIRTHING PROCESS and forming of a New Life, which goes beyond every possible imaginable miracle. BIRTH is a transition through a very specific GATE, which opens up during proccess showing Life and Death simultaneously. It opens up deepest unresolved issues and challenges, faces us up to overcome all levels of borderlines, obstacles and to go beyond ego, power and fear. This transition has an enormous Transformative Power, Healing power and potential, which lies beyond these borders. This pathway brings woman beyond state of consciousness that is understandable and might get to an extent of exctasy or even orgasm under certain defined conditions. Such an event might be viewed with very different pictures. Working with Mental Health issues, I address the importance of including specific approach towards care that brings innovative results. Within the context of psychedelic research we have been dealing with perinatal matrices, which rise up in states of regression and use of psychedelics as a basis of human functioning of brain and predisposition towards life and death. Perinatal topics keep arising in every human psychological issues. Viewing how the power of consciousness during birthing proccess might influence the way it looks, makes me realize sensitivity we have in hands not only individually but on a global level and of a complete new vision of future life of a humankind.
