Ep 53: Bring a Beginner's Mind to Birth
Do you bring a beginner’s mind to your births? What do I even mean by that? I look forward to Amber’s stories today specifically for this reason. Even with 5 births, Amber learned that each baby will be born in his or her own unique way.
Learning to let go of all of the assumptions of what birth is or is not is a great way to enter labor. Recognizing that this is a new birth, a new baby, a new experience can help us let go of expectations and become intuitive with what we need and want each time.
Before we get started, I want to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving! This year, I am thankful for you. I’m so thankful for the mothers I’ve met, the stories I’ve heard, and the listeners I’ve connected with. You’ve all been such a blessing to me, and I pray each day that this podcast will be a blessing to you, wherever you are in your journey. I hope this brings you comfort, encouragement, and the understanding that you are so powerful and so incredible. I’m honored to be able to play a small part in your birthing or motherhood journey.
If you’re feeling a little loving, I’d be so grateful for you to take a moment to leave a review on iTunes. This is such a helpful way for the podcast to grow. If you’re selected as the reviewer of the week, I’ll be sending you a Happy Homebirth Podcast Sticker. You can also take a quick screenshot of you listening to this episode and upload it to your Instagram stories. Tag @happyhomebirthpodcast and I”ll be sure to share it in my stories, too!
Finally- looking for a great gift for your midwife, homebirth mama friend, or yourself? Happy homebirth t shirts are available again! You can score yours through the website or the link in my Instagram bio! 3 different styles to choose from, and several colors in each! I personally love the baseball tee.
Okay, let’s waste no time. Amber has such goodness to share with us!
Please remember that the opinions of my guest may not necessarily reflect my own and vice versa, and neither one of us are medical professionals, so continue to see your doctor, midwife, or if you’re like me, your chiropractor.
