Uncovering the Secrets to Natural Birthing Bliss!
I’d like to share a personal story with you that has changed my life and now may change yours!
I was just five months pregnant with our first baby when I was fortunate to have the trip of a lifetime with my husband. It was very humid and misty, and as we approached one of the wonders of the world, the Great Wall of China, in all its glory, the tour guide said something I will never forget:
“There are two ways to climb The Wall— you can either go the hard way or the easy way.” He added, “Only the hard way is not so hard and the easy way is not so easy.”
At that point we were thoroughly confused!
This curious riddle managed to get stuck in my head and as they say, “drove me up the wall!” It really got me thinking many months later about it’s deeper meaning. I started to relate it to the journey into motherhood and life in general. There was so much wisdom there!
For instance, sometimes modern women believe booking themselves into an elective caesarean (“too posh to push” or just plain scared) or taking all the drugs is the easy way out because then they don’t have to feel anything, or can bypass the whole process.
Yet when you look at the big picture, it’s actually not so easy after all. In fact, I would say the opposite: choosing a medical birth is taking the hard road.
My personal journey into motherhood had such a profound impact on me, that it has inspired me to become an advocate of natural and conscious parenting, committed to supporting women to give birth naturally and to overcome their fears about birthing in a world that has become so medicalised and fearful of something so perfectly natural.
In my new book, A Modern Woman’s Guide to a Natural Empowering Birth, you will discover how to overcome your fears and reclaim your birth power. A collection of inspiring birth stories, expert tips and practical tools, this inspirational guide takes you on a powerful journey of discovery and gives you the keys to transforming your birth experience.
Generously sprinkled with inspirational quotes and topped with a compelling afterword by Dr Sarah Buckley, internationally renowned author, this is the ultimate mind -body preparation guide for every woman in bloom!
