Birth is likely one of the most exhilarating and empowering life events but yet so many women walk away feeling let down or go into the birth fearful and worried about it.
Over the years humans have decided that for whatever reason, we need to fear birth. That birth has to be painful and that birth is a condition that needs medical assistance.
As Grantly Dick-Read said: ‘“No other natural bodily function is painful and childbirth should not be an exception.” Fear causes tension which in turn causes pain and it is a vicious cycle which needs to be broken.
This is one of the reasons that I have come to walk alongside women during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum time. Not to impose my ideas but to allow them to be supported, know options and have empowered births and recovery throughout the postpartum time.
If you are interested in being empowered and looking for your positive birth truth then keep on reading. Or perhaps you want to unpick your birth in order to heal and move forward.
Oh, and I am on Instagram and Facebook so feel free to pop on over.
