Women everywhere, let's be bold, be confident and get in tune with our incredible bodies that have been naturally designed for child birth and nourishment, bypassing all sorts of common problems like regular ear infections to allergies to so much more!
Since when has it become socially acceptable to over medicate ourselves as women to give birth with less pain? Have we not stopped to think what this pain does for us and how beneficial it is for both mom and baby and the bond it naturally creates? What do we think women did before our time? Why do we neglect our own confidence and bodies and selfishly wimp out of what we are quite capable of achieving? This is not to condemn anyone but we do need to be well aware of our choices, and make informed choices especially when choosing for a baby that can't advocate for their own well being. Everything is connected so why create problems when they don't need to be created, if all is well then stick to natural! Take a look at these articles for some enlightenment:
Why natural childbirth? Ultimately, women find the answer to that question themselves. What they need from us as childbirth educators is to know that nature's design works beautifully. Confident women who are supported and encouraged and who enjoy the freedom to tap into their own wisdom find deep satisfaction in giving birth naturally. The process itself prepares mother and baby perfectly in every way to continue on their journey together.
Some women choose to give birth naturally because they love the challenge. Others find great satisfaction in working hard and “getting the job done.” Many women are eager to avoid anything that might harm their babies or themselves. But the most compelling reason to choose natural childbirth is a universal one. Women know how to give birth without machines, epidurals, and fear. Why natural childbirth? The more important question might be “Why not?”
So ask yourself 'Why Not'!?!
