This photo popped up on Facebook timeline today and I think is beautiful. It is birth, raw birth with a woman in the best position for her getting the support she needs from her husband knowing that her midwives are looking out for her baby. Her midwives are working around her and I would so love to see more pictures from this birth.
If you are preparing to give birth…
move…breathe…stay calm…use the positions that feel right for you…get off the bed…feel free to ignore the bed…get rid of your expectations about birth…let your body guide you…prepare well…gather together all the information, support and
reassurance you need and say what you need.
