Trust your body - it's so easy to say, but can sometimes be difficult to do. However, you've got one of the strongest muscles in the human body on your side - the uterus!
Understanding how your body works during labour can dispel many fears and myths that may be causing you anxiety about your upcoming birth experience.
Taking a childbirth preparation/education course can help prepare you for labour physically and emotionally.
Ever heard the term "psyching yourself out"? This can happen in labour if all you are processing is negativity.
It's easy to psyche yourself out for anything with negative thoughts - a job interview, a blind date - even your birth. If you enter into pregnancy and inevitably birthing with negative thoughts and stories ingrained in your mind, you are bound to turn to them on the day of your baby's birth.
During our 5 week HypnoBirthing series, we put a lot of focus on removing the idea of fear in birth - fear has no place in birth! This is done through learning about how the body works in labour, and how the mind and body are intrinsically tied together.
It's time to dispel the cultural expectation that birth must be painful.
