Confident & Easier Birthing – Introduction
Given the right tools, support, and setting, women forge the way for attaining the birth they wish. Starting in pregnancy, women can envision, plan, and practice for their ideal birth. The key: Relaxation. Even something as simple as dropping your shoulders vastly reduces the feeling of a contraction, making your birth easier and shorter.
While the time period of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum is finite, it neither exists in a vacuum nor ever entirely leaves you, nor your family members. Birth permeates, in small or large ways, throughout the mother’s and baby’s lives, as well as for other players involved. This is why we say not only does a mother birth a baby, she births herself – each time differently, for each birth. The couple together become the parents to a new family, each time, too.
For all these reasons, I invite you to read my topical blog articles surrounding birth, focusing on the specifics which can also help in the long term.
My blessings for healthy, confident, happy pregnancies, births, and postpartum periods.
