New mammas! Or perhaps this’ll be your second… third… forth baby coming?
How is your vision quest through this pregnancy?
Are you maybe envisioning a natural birth for you and baby?
I cannot suggest it enough to have the most natural and organic birth. It’s for the best for you and for baby! Another thing to really read on is medications during pregnancy and labour. Please please please do read on the affects. Pain management interventions are so common these days, we, as mothers are created to embark on this journey of birthing a baby. Naturally. Vaginal, unmedicated births are done since the dawn of time! Therefore, you can too. It only hurts for a short while, and when baby is blasting out, it’s all worth the pain. And you will not only be so proud of yourself, but the connection you feel to baby will be that much more immense.
There are plethora of ways to work through the surges/contractions when you do begin the journey. Don’t be afraid. Be courageous. Allow your body and baby help you through.
Here is a lovely site I came across that I brainstormed with. It lists basically everything and more – things you may or may not have pondered yet. It’s good to start pondering early, and to know what you want to visualize for your birth day. Not everything will go your way. But at least you can start shopping for the most aligned doctor, midwife, and/or doula. It’s good to be open-minded with your birth plan. On that divine day, it may go in all sorts of directions. Make sure you are not 100% attached to the plan. Be flexible.
May I introduce you to the Earthmama Blog
