You may notice our blog is filled with so much information. The information may go from pregnancy through pregnancy then parenting. I will then write about blogging or products I love. Hey, I may even write about starting a business. I want nothing more than to empower you to gain more knowledge and invest in your family.
I include links to more articles and to YouTube videos to help you gain more knowledge.
What do you need help with most right now?
You aren't lucky to have a Natural Birth ~ YOU are made for it!
Let me stop you for a minute and make you think before you dig a little deeper. What if? What if you dream of having a pain-free- med-free birth? Do you have supporting friends and family? Do they know your birth plan and willing to help you stick with it?
Did you know that having a natural birth helps you heal faster and is the safest way to deliver?
Your body was truly made for this. It knows when to go into labor, it uses our hormones (like oxytocin), your muscles, and even your body’s own pushing urge.
By hiring a doula you give yourself the best support. You have someone by your side who wants nothing more than to cheer you on. Someone who isn't going to be hurt when hormones are flowing.
Of course, when gearing up to have a natural birth it involves a lot of research and reading. In my opinion, you'll want to be prepared mentally because once you are mentally prepared for what to expect, you are ready to conquer anything. If you bring yourself around people who share positive birth stories, you are on the right track to kick butt!
Can I REALLY do this?
This is the question I get asked most often "Can I really do this?". What if I don't have the support of my family and friends?
I am telling you I KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS!
You are so strong! You are smart! You are prepared!
Instead of asking yourself "Can I really do this" ask yourself the following:
- What are my fears and how can I face them?
- Why do I want a natural birth?
- What are the ways I want to deal with any waves I feel?
- Who can I talk to that won't push their fears on me?
I know these questions because I asked myself these same questions. I have given birth five times. I have several pregnancies that ended too soon but brought me hope. At each moment these two lines appeared on the pregnancy test I started to prepare.
I am not going to tell you natural birth is easy, I mean it can be for some but I know it is best for the birthing parent and baby. I am going to teach you via the blog and of course as your doula that you can do this!
