There Are A Few Things No One Is Saying…
(but I think you should know)
⫸ Western culture focuses primarily on the physical body… neglecting the mind + soul aspect of pregnancy
⫸ We learn to align with the standards, desires, and needs of our society, culture, family… and often override our own
⫸ The pregnancy & birth narrative is saturated with fear, pressure, shaming, and comparing… not very empowering
Have you noticed any of that?
After working in the birth world for 10 years as a midwife and doula I got really tired of seeing the impact mainstream culture has on laboring people…
⫸ Feeling pressure by others, accompanied by feelings of confusion, shame, blame, and guilt when your action don’t line up with what other people think you should do
⫸ Scary statistics and warnings, accompanied by a strong narrative that you must educate yourself, but without any tools to process all the fears, doubt, stress, and anxiety that come up in the process
⫸ Feeling anxious, protective, and “tight” in your body.. Wondering how you’ll be able to relax and trust your body to open when the time comes…
Pregnancy shouldn’t be a time of stress, anxiety, and fear.
You deserve to feel peaceful, connected, confident.
You Deserve to trust yourself, and birth YOUR WAY.
