Natural birth gives you an exhilarating start and a strong bond with your baby – in the safest way possible. Your body is designed to give birth smoothly and safely: hormones like oxytocin, muscles, even your body’s own pushing urge all work together.
Of course, to get the safety and confidence from “the love hormone” oxytocin and these other helpers you need to get through delivery naturally. Medications stop your body’s hormones in their tracks (the synthetic ones in the IV lines don’t work the same way). But even moms who know natural birth is best, and know their bodies were designed to give birth, have questions:
- How do I stay healthy and low risk?
- How do I know I can handle giving birth?
- What if it hurts?
- What if I lose control?
- Are there techniques that really work?
- How can my partner be really involved (and really helpful)?
- What do I do if deep down I’m scared of giving birth?
I know all of these questions well because I’ve had six babies, and some variation of these comes up during every pregnancy! It’s totally normal, and the best part is, you can answer these and prepare for a natural birth and a healthy baby.
Just because childbirth is natural doesn’t mean it’s easy. We all know a mom who just waltzed into the delivery room and had a fabulous birth, no prep needed.
