Natural Birth – My Story

Hi there world,

My second child is now 16months old and I still get warm fuzzy feelings when I think of his birth.  I drive past the spot on the road where I nearly gave birth every day and remember how exhilerating and liberating my birthing experience was.

My first birth to my beautiful son, Joshua, was long, hard and scary.  It took me 5 years to pluck up the courage to have another go.  During this 5 years I worked in the birth suite at my local hospital and I saw first hand how women go through the journey of labour.  Most women go into labour with great intentions, however, these are squashed out of them as soon as the first contractions start.  Women arrive at hospital hoping to be saved from the terrible pain. 

If we could just look at these words, ‘terrible pain’, for a moment.  I hear women all over the world speak of labour as a shocking, unbearable experience and very few talk of the joys of labour.  I am here to help women see labour as a journey of self discovery and love, to ride the wave of labour and feel the excitement of believeing in your body and your baby.

As my belly grew with my second child I started to feel the same fears rearing their ugly heads; ‘how am I going to fit this baby out?’, ‘will my baby be ok?’, and ‘can I do this?’  I knew that I had to read every book, website and journal on birthing.  I scoured the internet for inspirational stories and found that there were more horror stories than anything

else.  However, I did come up with a common theme which was to relax, trust your body, and have a plan.  But how do I do this while in the throws of labour?  Well this was the key………….I had to learn how to stay focused and positive.

I found that there were about 7 different ways to teach me how to stay focused and positive these were:

  • Hypnobirthing
  • The Bradley Method
  • Lamaze
  • Reflexology
  • Relaxation, Rhythm and Ritual
  • Acupuncture and Acupressure
  • Waterbirth

So what I did was contact the experts in each field and explained that I was a midwife and wanted to show women what avenues there were for natural birth.  They were so excited to chat to me and really wanted to share their knowledge.   I, and a bunch of hard working assistants (thank you!), researched everything there was on these experts and finally came up with a list of extremely appropriate and leading questions to ask.  I had about 40mins with each person and recorded the interviews…………………………now here is the great news, you can listen to these interviews yourself and see what fantastic tips are there to for you to use now.  It doesn’t matter if you are thinking about becoming pregnant or about to pop, these interviews will just excite you and make you really look forward to your birth.  And also give you great tips for when the pain does start.  It is all well and good to plan, but it is really when it all starts that you see how much this interview series can put you on the right path and help you stay there.

If you go to  www.child-birth-options.com you will see the fantastic women that have literally changed my life.  Have a read of their bios, you will be blown away.  There are heaps of great bonus’ that include, keeping fit during pregnancy and how to enhance those first, magical few days of your baby’s life. 

Enjoy listening to these interviews and let me know what you think, I am always on the look out for women who take their birth and make it what they want.  Always stay focused and positive and remember to visualise the outcome you want and this will become your birthing story for you to share with the world.

Happy birthing,

Loretta
