Do's & Don't for a Positive Birth


If having a positive birth experience is important to you...


๐Ÿ’›


Don't bury your head in the sand. This is going to happen and the more you understand about how babies are born and how we can positively influence physiology, the less scary the idea of birth becomes.


๐Ÿ’›


Know you have options. Ask questions. Rarely is there only one course of action. With the variation of births, so is there a variation of ways to birth. One size does not fit all.


๐Ÿ’›


Just because someone is the other parent or even your own parent, it doesn't mean they are the best person to be your birth partner. Pick someone who you truly believe can support you and uphold your wishes, advocate for you and be your rock.


๐Ÿ’›


Ensure you are in the driving seat. YOU are the decision-maker, no one else. Seek advice, information, evidence and research and make choices that feel right for you.


๐Ÿ’›


Read positive birth stories, watch positive birth films, listen to positive birth podcasts, talk to positive birth workers. For the love of God don't watch 'This is Going to Hurt' or 'One Born Every Minute' and consider carefully if you feel emotionally available to hear friends' or families not so positive stories without it affecting your own confidence in birthing your baby.
