I’ve been having really incredible conversations about birth with other women for years now. I get how lucky I am to be able to say that.

Many women are not.

I recently had a conversation with a pregnant woman who told me she was truly terrified of giving birth.

She had been told a million horror stories from her girlfriends, her mom, her sister – mostly every woman she had ever spoken to about birth.

She was told the pain would make her want to die, contractions would be absolutely terrible, she would be begging for an epidural, etc, etc.

What. The. Eff.

In my opinion, this is not acceptable. It’s just not.

How are you encouraging and lifting a woman up to enter one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of her life?

By making her fearful and anxious?

I don’t know about you, but my body certainly wouldn’t want to respond as birth needs a body to respond under those circumstances.

I’ve been so lucky to have so many positive conversations with women about their experiences. And, I’ve had MANY conversations with women about how intensely difficult and challenging labor + birth was.

None of those women have made me feel fearful, though. 

They’ve made me feel educated and further prepared for the outcomes of birth.

I don’t mean that you have to pretend like labor and birth is a walk in the park by any means. Or, to say that your birth wasn’t intensely challenging, or even incredibly painful.

Those are fantastic lessons!

All I’m saying, is that we’re in an unique position to learn from each other and to help our sistas.

In this article today, I want to pass on some techniques for labor and birth that I will absolutely be taking into my own birth this summer.

These tips and suggestions are things I’ve learned from the women before me, and I want you to have them, too.

Read my 5 tips on How To make Labor and Delivery Easier.

In this article you will learn:

• How different body positions can help you labor and deliver your baby effectively

• How the vibe and emotions in your birthing room can affect your labor

• How to use breathing techniques to help you push your baby out

Pass this on to any women you know who are pregnant or who have due dates coming up!
