“Make the best choices for a positive birth and a healthy baby”

January  2012 a new day, a new month, a new year for new resolutions. Perhaps 2012 is the year you are thinking of becoming pregnant, are pregnant or became a brand new parent. Why not make this the year you choose to discard any opinions that do not feel right to you about pregnancy, birth, and parenthood. Toss away those worries and misconceptions and flow with your new life transition in peace and appreciation.

As a childbirth educator, I have the honor of preparing and educating pregnant woman and their partners for their upcoming labor and birth. As a birth doula I am blessed in being able to provide physical and emotional support during labor and to witness the miracle of life.

In my DVD series , “SMALL WONDERS CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION, YOUR POSITIVE BIRTH EXPERIENCE” I explain that pregnancy is a time for transformation, for woman to embrace their changing bodies, and to roll with what, at times, can be challenging , however normal variances of pregnancy. (OK , I know morning sickness is not really fun!) Having  an understanding of the trimester’s transitions helps prepare you for recognizing you and your baby’s ability to work together. Nature has designed the labor stages perfectly for you. The hard work of labor will get you to a place of surrender. Then as you listen to your body you recognize the urge to bear down. Soon you will feel your baby’s head emerge from your body as you get a glimpse of their face with eyes wide open. The rest of their body soon slips out and this new life is placed skin to skin against your body, a time you will never forget. Your baby’s birthday will be remembered with love and smiling tears.

Make the resolution to shower yourself with positive energy. Recite a positive affirmation daily as you embrace your pregnancy with wisdom and trust, your labor and birth with confidence and power, and parenthood with love and joy
