Childbirth requires you to listen into yourself, requires patience, being in the moment. How are you going to successfully manage and cope with the "pain" of childbirth? How will you stave off panic, fear, exhaustion, should one or all three arise? How will you manage the hospital staff should you feel pressured to make a choice or birth in a way you don't wish to? Do you know? It is very important to educate yourself with quality childbirth educators that will give you an accurate and well-rounded approach to the birthing process. Invest in yourself and your child and build a powerful consciousness in order to make clear and informed decisions about birth so that you have a trauma free birth experience. You and your child, at the very least, deserve this much.
Read Holly's story below:
"I think about Holly and how she was automatically given an epidural by the doctor when she got to the hospital. Of course it makes sense that mothers who have no experience of their vastness would want that. When we don't know how to handle pain, we want to run from it. It's an alien concept in our culture to consider that any form of pain can actually be useful. When you don't have techniques to cope with normal pain, or even the experience of being uncomfortable, you will believe something is wrong. If you take the time now to give yourself tools to come to know your body and the power of your mind, so much can be accomplished. Pain can truly be transformed into sensation.
Childbirth is a transcendent experience. Going through childbirth without drugs can give you a new sense of power that you never knew existed, giving you a sense of strength that will change the way you approach future challenges. When we feel in charge of our birth experience, we may go into (birthing) and mothering more confidently and make choices that are in the best interest of our children, even if those choices go against the grain of what the rest of society is doing." Bountiful, Beautiful, Blissful by Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa
