Natural birth gives you a great start and a strong bond with your baby – in the safest way possible. Nature designed your body to give birth smoothly and safely. Your hormones (like oxytocin), your muscles, and even your body’s own pushing urge all work together.
Of course, to get safety and confidence with a good labor and delivery, you need to get through it naturally. Medications and procedures 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 nature designed their bodies for it, 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 these questions well because I’ve had seven 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 smooth labor 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 experience, no prep needed.
