“Good luck trying to birth without an epidural….”
“Oh you think you will be able to tolerate the pain, just you wait….”
Can we STOP with the fear mongering to new mothers!?
🛑STOP telling women to fear their own bodies.
🛑STOP shoving your fears of a homebirth off on a woman who is preparing for one of the biggest moments of her life.
🛑STOP shaming them for wanting to birth naturally….something that has been done SINCE THE DAWN OF TIME.
One of the most common questions about home births is how to manage the pain.
With a holistic approach, you are choosing to use techniques such as breathing, movement, self-hypnosis instead of pitocin and epidurals.
You have explained to your friends and family over and over again that you do not wish to have narcotic medications included in your birth. Yes, demerol, fentanyl, morphine and nubain are all narcotic-type medications. They can make the mother feel groggy, lightheaded, nauseated and potentially interfere with your ability to move about freely around the room. ON TOP OF THAT, they can cause the baby to be born sleepy, irritable and may interfere with a successful first feeding at the breast.
Using HOLISTIC pain management techniques can help you AVOID side effects of medication. These methods help promote the natural progress of labor resulting in a quicker recovery, no medical interventions and a baby who is more likely to breastfeed readily!
Having a midwife at your side from conception to postpartum can alleviate your fears and help better PREPARE you and your partner for a SUCCESSFUL homebirth.
What makes a homebirth successful?
🤱A happy, healthy baby.
🤱A happy, healthy and SUPPORTED mom who is in control of her labor.
🤱A happy, healthy RELATIONSHIP between the parents and their birth team.
