Today I’m sharing with you a little presentation on how birth sets you up for parenting. When a baby is born, so is a mother. There are many inner forces that are being activated – and I want to highlight the innate intelligence we have inside of ourselves and start to work towards optimising our physiological response to labour – as there are many benefits on the other side. This is a way of looking at birth that is rarely given any attention. I hope you enjoy it.
I would also like to acknowledge that not everyone listening to this podcast, who is having a baby identifies as a woman. I want to extend my care and respect to you – and acknowledge that these changes are indeed happening for you too, and how they manifest is different for everyone. I will however be using female pronouns to honour the age-old traditions of birthing. Thanks for listening.
