Metamorphic Touch & Pregnancy

baby in the womb

Metamorphic touch is an amazing practice when you are pregnant. Our nine month journey in the womb is a formative time which establishes the blueprint for our life. Mother’s stresses during this time are the beginning of patterns which may challenge us later on.

Patterns shape our life

Patterns are filters through which we experience ourselves and life. They can show up in all sorts of ways, as beliefs, limiting ideas, judgements, or low self esteem. They can be emotional states like fear, shame or anger. Behaviourally we may act small, sabotage ourselves, have difficulties learning or struggle with addictions. They can also manifest in the body as physical blocks.

Metamorphic touch acts as a catlyst to our life force

Metamorphic touch is easy to learn and relaxing to receive. We lightly touch points on the feet, head and hands. By stroking points which correspond to our prenatal time we act as a catalyst to mum and baby’s life force. Their life force, guided by it’s innate intelligence, can bring about transformation.

The beauty of not imposing our will

The beauty of this approach is that we do not try to heal, fix, counsel or direct. The child’s consciousness has organised itself in this way and it can transform them. A session is a big yes to life, a trust that your child’s life force knows exactly how to grow them.

Sharing loving touch

Couples often report feeling closer after giving each other sessions. I teach many expectant mums who then show it to their partner so they can work on each other. One mum shared that she felt more confident about the whole process of delivering her child after receiving weekly sessions from her partner.

Metamorphic touch during labour

It is possible to work on mum’s feet in between contractions. One woman, knowing she had an issue with getting things done, asked her husband to work on her hands rather than her feet. The hands correspond to the part of us that gets things done.

Midwives & metamorphic touch

A group of midwives used the technique on their clients and informally shared their observations. All had quite straight forward natural births. There was no post natal deppression, the babies took to the breast easily, and their tummies returned to their prebirth shape soon after.

Working with your new born baby

Birth is a powerful experience. We move out of the known universe of the womb to a new aerobic one where we will begin life as an independant being. Parents often instinctively start touching their baby’s feet in this way the moment they are born. I always feel like I come back to myself after a session, and for a newborn, I can’t think of a better way to enter the world.

Growing up with metamorphic touch

I love teaching and practicing on mums during pregnancy and beyond. These kids seem amazingly centered and grounded. Their communication is impressively clear and open. I’ve watched them grow into well rounded young people involved in life affirming activities who steer clear of the wrong peer groups and destructive activities. There is a sense of empowerment, ease and authenticity as they grow.

No special time required

Because metamorphic touch is so user friendly it can be offered while relaxing on the couch, chatting, or putting kids to bed. It’s ideal for parents to work on themselves during pregnancy and to continue on with the children. You do not have to give hour long sessions. If ten minites is all you have, that is perfect.

Much love, Dominique

In 2004, I began training in Metamorphic Technique with it's founder, Gaston Saint-Pierre. I became a practitioner, then a teacher in 2006, which led me to run workshops all around the world. I then created Sacred Life Alchemy, the Co-Create with the Field Manifesting Process, and Heart Listening, three profound healing systems to transform your reality into more of what you want. In 2017, I renamed my  teaching Metamorphic Touch to reflect the new insights and perspectives I bring to this approach. Metamorphic Touch is a powerful healing modality to transform your life.
