Yeah I know… I’m late to the party… but when this phrase popped into my head I had to share it because frankly it was just too perfect not to.
Women were born to birth babies. Forget about the screaming, dramatized labors you see in the Media.
Educate yourself about birth. Read a good book like Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth. Watch a great documentary like The Business of Being Born. Surround yourself with the support you need (family, friends, midwives, and doulas).
Then finally, when the time comes, KEEP CALM AND BIRTH AT HOME. Sounds so simple, sounds so easy, but it really can be both.
