Has the disappointment from your previous birth got you feeling fearful or anxious about the outcome of your next birth? Or maybe this is even your very first pregnancy and you are a little nervous and have no idea what to expect when you go into labour and beyond?
You aren't too fond of the thought of hospitals, you are worried about suffering from pain in labour, or about "people" bulldozing your experience and not "allowing" you bodily autonomy.
You kind of like the idea of having a calm birth...You are quite in - tune with your body.
You know somewhere deep inside that your body was made to birth...you have this quiet intuition that tells you you can totally do it. But not everyone else around you is that positive or emotionally supportive. 🙄
That I totally believe in you and your abilities, and that your innermost wants for your labour, birth and postpartum stages are all valid!
You can have that beautiful and blissful birth you want, the way you want. Because that is your right!
There are strategies to follow from early on in your pregnancy to avoid disappointments and there are ways to prepare yourself mentally, physically and emotionally well before the big day to increase your chances of feeling calm and everything going smoothly during your birth.
An empowered birth inevitably has a positive effect on your mental health, postpartum wellbeing, your success in breastfeeding, your baby's health, and your relationship with your husband!
