What kind of birth should you have? A positive one.
When it comes to birth, there are many different approaches you can take.
It might feel overwhelming to try and figure out what kind of birth is best for you. That’s where creating an effective birth plan comes in handy. (I know, you can’t control birth, but how you prepare goes a long way in helping you reach your goals!)
No matter what kind of birth you choose, the BEST kind of birth experience to plan for is a POSITIVE one.
If you’re wondering how to have a positive birth experience, you can read this post.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of a positive birth experience. With all the women I’ve stood beside, while they birthed their babies, I worked hard to help them reach their birthing goals. But, most of all, I’ve always had a deep desire for their experience to be positive, no matter what twists, turns or detours they encounter. That’s when I realized: I care a lot about helping you have a positive birth experience no matter how you give birth. Whether you take my Positive Birth Workshop, hire me as your Doula, or sign up for a Skype session, my services, my work, my passion is to help you have a positive childbearing season of life.
I’ve realized through my own struggles having babies that it doesn’t have to be perfect to be positive. So many things can make a challenging experience more positive.
Often, it’s in the simplest but most needed things: a comforting touch, a cup of tea or a snack just at the right moment, having your hand held when you don’t know what to hold onto, encouraging words to help you focus, a listening ear that will honour your choices, respect and dignity when you need it most, wisdom given, laughter and tears shared.
That is my work, as your Doula: to help make the challenging experience of birth a positive one.
It’s worth investing in a positive experience while you plan for whatever kind of birth you really want.
Because, in the end, when comparing birthing approaches, a positive experience wins every time.
